Wonderful way to travel 

Packed full of features, its an outstanding value for money.

New Kawasaki Versys 1000 S has for 2021 had all of the added aids that were previosly only on the SE version installed as standard with the exception of the new Showa “Skyhook” active suspension. With refinements to the engine, added electronic throttle valves,  Bosh inertial measurement unit allowed for a massive amount of new electronic rider assists and features to be added as standard to the new bike. Furthermore, the styling of the Versys 1000 is centered around the rider. With sharp Kawasaki lines, with aggressive Ninja H2 inspired nose, housing two highly illuminating LED headlamps.


Change Your View

Any road any time.

Bike adventures are life’s best adventures. Every day brings opportunity for fresh challenges. Beyond the roads you know lie whole new vistas. Unknown roads are easier and faraway places nearer with the Versys 1000. When Adventure Calls, you and the Versys 1000 have the answer. ANY ROAD. ANY TIME.


Sharp Kawasaki design

Rides as well as it looks. 

The main concern when designing the new Versys 1000 was comfort to the rider and passenger. Ergonomics, sitting position, wind protection and the seat shape are all focused to maximise comfort on the globe trotting expeditions this bike is built for. On the other hand, the sharp Ninja H2 inspired styling hint at the more naughty side of the bike. To accentuate the highest grade finish on the bike, the SE models are painted in Kawasaki “Self Healing” Highly Durable paint. Allowing the bike to remain looking pristine for longer.


Enjoy the simple things

No fuss, simple and enjoyable.

The 1,043 cc In-line Four used in the superb Kawasaki Z1000 and Z1000SX ranges, tuned for flexibility returns in the new Versys 1000 S. Superb throttle response and strong torque at all rpm (especially in the low-mid range)  is even better on the new Versys 1000 S thanks to electronic throttle valves. Packing all of the updated features, such as much anticipated cruise control, smooth power delivery thanks to variable throttle valves as well as Kawasaki Quickshifter included as standard on the S model.
