About Versys 1000

Kawasaki Versys 1000 is a super bike available at a starting price of Rs. 12,30,978 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 1 colour. The Kawasaki Versys 1000 is powered by 1043cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 118.27 bhp and a torque of 102 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Kawasaki Versys 1000 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This Versys 1000 bike weighs 255 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 21 liters.

Kawasaki India has announced the launch of the 2023 iteration of its litre-class touring motorcycle, the Versys 1000, in our market.

The 2023 iteration of the Versys 1000 is available in a single variant and one colour option in the Indian market. The only paint theme available for the 2023 Kawasaki Versys 1000 is the dual-tone Metallic Matte Graphenesteel Grey with Metallic Spark Black. Meanwhile, the 2023 model retains the styling cues from the 2022 version and continues to feature a twin-pod headlight, fairing integrated cornering lights, an adjustable windscreen, a step-up seat design, a rear luggage rack, and a side-slung exhaust.

The features, too, are similar to the previous version. Thus, the 2023 Kawasaki Versys 1000 continues to use full-LED lighting, a semi-digital instrument cluster that includes an analogue-style tachometer with an LCD screen, Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) with Kawasaki Cornering Management Function, ABS, traction control system, assist and slipper clutch, electronic cruise control, and a DC socket as standard. Notably, the DC socket was previously sold as an accessory.

The mechanical specifications retain the 1,043cc, inline-four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with four valves per cylinder. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, this motor is tuned to deliver a maximum output of 118.2bhp at 9,000rpm and 102Nm of peak torque at 7,500rpm. This gearbox features an assist and slipper clutch mechanism.

The suspension setup on the 2023 Kawasaki Versys 1000, similar to its predecessor, includes 43mm upside-down front forks and a rear monoshock. The front forks and rear monoshock are adjustable for rebound damping and preload. The anchoring setup includes dual 310mm discs with dual radial-mount, monobloc, opposed 4-piston callipers at the front, and a single 250mm rotor with a single-piston calliper at the back. The 17-inch alloy wheels are wrapped in 120/70-section front and 180/55-section rear tyres.

The 2023 Kawasaki Versys 1000 competes in the same price range as the BMW F 900 XR and the Triumph Tiger 850 Sport.

Kawasaki Versys 1000 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • 1000cc engine is smooth, refined and powerful
    • Excellent seating comfort
    • Equipped with adjustable windscreen
  • Could be Better

    • overall weight is at the heavier side
    • High seat height makes it difficult

BikeWale's Take

The Versys 1000 is Kawasaki’s litre-class touring motorcycle. It was designed and developed for people who love doing long distances comfortably. The Versys 1000 is known for its 1000cc refined engine and great seating comfort. But this bike weighs quite a bit, and with a high seat height, it makes it quite difficult to live with it daily.

    It's a great bike if you plan on touring, though it's a soft tourer, meaning it's for tarmac purposes only. Won't handle well on gravel and off-road conditions. It's supremely comfortable and can eat distances like slurpy noodles. The engine is super smooth and can pull
