Kawasaki Versys 1000 2019

Versys 1000, Versys 1000 Tourer or Versys 1000 Grand Tourer

In 2019 Kawasaki Versys 1000 receives a major overhaul, bringing a smooth, robust and reliable platform into a bleeding edge of technology and engineering excellence.

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. Superb throttle response and strong torque at all rpm (especially in the low-mid range) old model was known for is even better on the new Versys 1000 thanks to electronic throttle valves. Such technology also enabled for the addition of cruise control as standard, making long trips even more comfortable.

The seductive intake howl for which Kawasaki 999cc engines are known for, ensures that every twist of the throttle is as exciting and infectious as the last. Treating the rider to gorgeous acoustic and physical experience. Kawasaki Quickshifter is available as an optional extra for the standard model.

All Versys 1000 models have 3-Mode KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control) this system covers a wide range of riding conditions. This system works in cooperation with the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) developed with Bosh, to monitor traction, engine braking and the new radial mounted monobloc brakes as well as the chassis, to keep the bike stable, responsive and safe in corners no matter the conditions. Full or Low Power modes allow the rider to set power delivery to suit all conditions.

For added comfort kawasaki included adjustable screen and 12V power socket as standard on all the new Versys models, furthermore new Versys emphasises it's focus on latest and best technology with high tech LCD dash, all LED lighting including indicators, headlamps and rear light.

Long-travel suspension enables riders to take on corners with ease and confidence. While not designed for off-road use, the long-travel suspensions ability to cope with less-than-perfect surfaces allows the Versys 1000 to remain composed where bikes with stiffer, sportier setups would require backing off the throttle.

Lightweight 17” wheels selected for their road sports potential offer increased cornering performance and increased high-speed stability.

The clean mounting system for the genuine panniers allows them to be fitted and removed very simply with a one key system. These along with many other accessories are available for the Kawasaki Versys 1000.

The Kawasaki Versys 1000 has been made to top the big adventure bike sector with traditional Kawasaki build quality.

Alternatively how about the Kawasaki Versys 1000 Tourer that comes with clean mount panniers and removable liners, handlebar guards and Versys tank pad or the Grand Tourer version gets pannier and liners, 47 litre top box, handlebar guards, Versys tank pad, fog lights.

Exciting In-Line Four Engine

A key to the Versys 1000’s fun factor, the exciting engine delivers more than just performance figures. The 1,043 cm3 In-line Four, tuned for flexibility, offers superb throttle response, strong torque at all rpm (especially in the low-mid range), and a seductive intake howl – ensuring riders are treated to a physically and aurally exhilarating sensation with every twist of the throttle. A change to Electronic Throttle Valves for 2019 enables the addition of Electronic Cruise Control, while also contributing to smooth power delivery.

Electronic Throttle Valves

Electronic Throttle Valves enable the ECU to control the volume of both the fuel (via fuel injectors) and the air (via throttle valves) delivered to the engine. Ideal fuel injection and throttle valve position results in smooth, natural engine response and the ideal engine output.

Assist & Slipper Clutch

Race-inspired clutch technology offers both a back-torque limiting function as well as a very light feel at the lever.

Upright riding position

Spacious, upright riding position offers a high level of machine control in various conditions while contributing to rider comfort

KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function)

IMU-Equipped Total Engine & Chassis Management Package 
Using the latest evolution of Kawasaki’s advanced modelling software and feedback from a compact Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), KCMF monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner – from entry, through the apex, to corner exit – modulating brake force and engine power to facilitate smooth transition from acceleration to braking and back again, and to assist riders in tracing their intended line through the corner. On the Versys 1000, KCMF oversees the following systems:

KIBS (including pitching management and corner braking

KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control)

Three modes cover a wide range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind under certain conditions to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence.

Fun Sport Riding on a Variety of Streets/Conditions

Because real world riding occurs on streets that are often less than circuit smooth – road imperfections (bumps, potholes) are far from rare, and some streets are not even paved (cobblestone, etc) – Kawasaki engineers chose long-travel suspension to enable riders to carve corners with aplomb. While not designed for off-road use, the long-travel suspension’s ability to cope with less-than-perfect street conditions allows the Versys 1000 to remain composed

KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System)

Kawasaki’s supersport-grade high-precision brake management system is now standard equipment on the Versys 1000. This is the same base system used on the Ninja H2 and Ninja ZX-10R, with programming and settings revised to suit the street performance parameters and long-travel suspension of the Versys 1000.

Radial-Mount Front Brake Calipers

The ø310 mm front petal discs are now gripped by highly rigid radial-mount monobloc calipers complemented by a radial-pump front brake master cylinder, contributing to superb feel and formidable stopping power.

Electronic Cruise Control

Kawasaki’s cruise control system allows a desired speed to be maintained with the simple press of a button. Once activated, the rider does not have to constantly apply the throttle. This reduces stress on the right hand when traveling long distances, enabling relaxed cruising and contributing to a high level of riding comfort.

Adjustable Windscreen

Complementing the increased wind protection offered by the Versys 1000’s new front cowl and wider shrouds, the steplessly adjustable windscreen can be tailored to rider preference, contributing to comfortable highway cruising. Windscreen height can now be easily adjusted from the rider’s seat.
High screen comes standard on the SE.

Two Available Seats

Both the standard and the SE model are fitted with the Comfort Seat which features thicker urethane cushioning to provide the comfort to enable long hours in the saddle, while offering taller riders a relaxed knee bend. Both bikes can also be fitted with the accessory Low Seat (20 mm lower) which prioritises an easy reach to the ground.

Handy power source

Conveniently located in the cockpit, a DC socket, previously an accessory, is now standard equipment. The socket is complemented by prepared pre-wiring. A total of 40 W of power is available.
