Description

Details

On any-street, the new Versys 1000 offers maximum riding enjoyment.  Solo or two-up, around the corner or around the globe, a unique combination of a highly responsive In-Line Four engine plus a nimble chassis is a recipe for riding fun. Add in the upright riding position and you have a package that is an ideal city roamer that really comes into its own on twisty mountain roads. 


SHARP, SPORTY STYLING
Completely revised styling package blends style, wind protection, aerodynamics and airflow management. The new twin headlamp design contributes to strong Kawasaki looks, while reflecting the Versys 1000’s abundant potential for fun, sporty riding.


THICKLY PADDED SEAT
Deep cushioning and tailor-designed seat material offer superb comfort for long-distance riding


CENTRE STAND
Standard centre stand facilitates maintenance chores.
TRIPLE PETAL DISC BRAKES WITH LATEST-SPEC ABS
Larger front discs are complemented by new pad material designed to deliver stronger initial bite. ABS – standard on all models – offers additional reassurance when braking on low-grip or uneven surfaces.


ALUMINIUM TWIN-TUBE FRAME
The frame’s light weight and high rigidity contribute to sharp, firm handling. New rubber upper engine mounts contribute to reduced vibration and greater handling and stability.
Lightweight and highly rigid, the frame uses the engine as a stressed member. It contributes to handling, offering a firm, planted feeling, good stability and light, nimble turning.


ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH
Race-inspired clutch technology offers both a back-torque limiting function as well as a much lighter feel at the lever.
Assist & Slipper Clutch was developed based on feedback from racing activities. The clutch uses two types of cams (an assist cam and a slipper cam), offering two new functions not available on the standard clutch of the previous model.


Ø43 MM INVERTED FRONT FORK
New inverted fork offers composed damping and excellent action in a variety of street riding situations. Reduced damping and revised top-out spring settings contribute to increased ride comfort.


1,043 CM3 LIQUID-COOLED, 4-STROKE IN-LINE FOUR
To maximise the Versys 1000’s fun factor, engineers wanted to provide the most exciting engine possible. The engine needed to deliver more than just performance figures. The engine they chose was a 1,043 cm3 In-line Four, tuned for flexibility. Superb throttle response, strong torque at all rpm (especially in the low-mid range), and a seductive intake howl ensure that every twist of the throttle delivers a physical and aural sensation that riders may easily find addictive.


LARGE-VOLUME FUEL TANK
With engine and transmission settings, range (calculated)
on one tank could be 400 km.21 litre capacity enables long range between fill-ups (Range would vary depending on riding speed and conditions).


INSTRUMENTATION
Tough-design multi-function instrumentation includes an analogue style tachometer and LCD with speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer, clock, dual trip meters, current and average fuel consumption, remaining range, and external air temperature. Large analogue-style tachometer is complemented by a multi-function LCD screen controlled by a convenient handle switch. Revised meter face adds to sporty looks.


KTRC (3-MODE)
3-mode KTRC combines the traction control technology of both 1-mode KTRC, which provides enhanced stability in slippery situations by preventing wheel slip, and S-KTRC, which helps maintain optimum traction in sport riding situations by predicting the rear wheel slip ratio during acceleration, into a single system.
The convenient handle switch allows the type of traction control to be changed instantly by selecting one of the three modes, even while riding. Modes 1 and 2 maintain optimum traction during cornering, like S-KTRC. Designed with sport riding in mind, they enable sharp acceleration out of corners by maximising forward drive from the rear wheel. Modes 1 and 2 differ in the amount that they intervene. Mode 1, set for dry, good-grip road conditions, maintains the ideal slip ratio to ensure optimum traction.
Mode 3 operates like 1-mode KTRC, reducing power to allow grip to be regained when rear wheel spin is detected. It is ideal when riding in slippery conditions or in the wet. Enabling riders to easily change traction control character, 3-mode KTRC is Kawasaki's most advanced engine management system.


POWER MODES
Power modes offer riders an easily selectable choice between Full and Low Power. While Full Power is unrestricted, in Low Power mode maximum power is limited to approximately 75-80% of Full. Response is also milder in Low Power mode. Riders may opt to use Low Power mode for rainy conditions or city riding, and Full Power when sport riding.
Available on the Ninja ZX-14R / ZZR1400, Versys 1000 and other key models, when combined with the 3-mode KTRC (+ OFF) traction control system, Power Mode selection offers a total of eight combinations (KTRC: Mode 1/2/3+OFF x Power Mode: Full/Low) to suit a wide range of riding situations. For example, an experienced rider enjoying sport riding on dry pavement might choose Full Power and Mode 1. On a wet or slippery surface, choosing Low Power and Mode 3 would yield the lowest chance of incurring wheel spin, and with the milder throttle response would offer a high level of riding safety.
