Kawasaki’s top-of-the-line tourer, the Versys 1000, has been discontinued in India. The Versys 1000 was discontinued because the Japanese manufacturer, Kawasaki Bikes, felt there was little market demand for it. Instead, the company would increase sales of the Versys-X 300 and Versys 650, which are more affordable options. With its comfortable riding dynamics, refined and powerful motor, excellent ride quality, excellent brakes, and electronics package, the Versys 1000 is an ideal touring motorcycle. The Kawasaki Versys 1000 is powered by a massive 1,043cc inline-four, liquid-cooled engine that produces 120bhp at 9000 rpm and 102 Nm of peak torque at 7500 rpm. However, the engine was detuned to suit the sports touring dynamics of the bike.

Instrumentation consists of an integrated analog unit that shows speed and fuel and an odometer. As befits a neo-retro motorcycle, there’s a lot of chrome and flowing lines that are reminiscent of the original Ideal Jawa bike in India.
