CARATTERISTICHE CHIAVE

LED Cornering Lights

LED Cornering Lights

Lights built into the shrouds help illuminate the road when cornering at night. Each of the three lights has a fixed direction and is activated based on lean angle. As the bike leans over, the lights come on in order, creating a wider illuminated path in the direction the bike is heading. 

Smartphone Connectivity

Smartphone Connectivity

Complementing the Versys 1000 S's TFT dashboard is a Bluetooth chip built into the instrument panel which enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using the smartphone application “RIDEOLOGY THE APP,” a number of instrument functions can be accessed, contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience.

KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control)

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.

Integrated Riding Modes

Integrated Riding Modes

The Versys S comes standard with integrated rider modes allowing the selection of three modes which automatically combine the most appropriate traction control and power settings for sport, road, rain plus a rider (manual) mode.

Electronic Throttle Valves

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.

All-LED Lighting

All-LED Lighting

From the twin headlamps and compact LED turn signals to the LED taillight and LED licence plate bulb, the Versys 1000 S offers an all-LED lighting package.

Fun Sport Riding on a Variety of Streets/Conditions

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 where bikes with stiffer, sportier set-ups would require backing off the throttle. Lightweight 17” wheels front and rear contribute to quick, sporty handling.

Exciting In-Line Four Engine

Exciting In-Line Four Engine

A key to the Versys 1000 S’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 enables the addition of Electronic Cruise Control, while also contributing to smooth power delivery.

Radial-Mount Front Brake Calipers

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.

 Two Available Seats

Two Available Seats

The Versys 1000 S is 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

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.

KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function)

KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function)

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. 

KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)

KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)

Complementing the Versys 1000 S’s exhilarating engine character, the model's standard equipment includes a quick shifter that enables clutchless upshifts and downshifts for seamless acceleration and quick and easy deceleration.

Electronic Cruise Control

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

Adjustable Windscreen

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

TFT Full Colour Instrumentation

TFT Full Colour Instrumentation

The compact all-digital TFT colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, highgrade appearance. The high-grade full colour display features TFT (thin-film transistor) technology, delivering a high level of visibility. The screen’s background colour is selectable (black or white), and screen brightness adjusts automatically to suit available light. In addition to scrollable multi-function windows, two display modes offer riders a choice of how they want their information presented.

KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System)

KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System)

Kawasaki’s supersport-grade high-precision brake management system is standard equipment on the Versys 1000 S. 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 S.

Grip Heaters

Grip Heaters

Grip heaters provide increased comfort on cold days. They fully enclose the grips, ensuring excellent warmth.

Clean-Mount Pannier System

Clean-Mount Pannier System

The mounting system for the accessory panniers allows the panniers to be attached and removed very simply, contributing to increased convenience.  Seamlessly integrating the panniers with the rear of the bike, the clean-mount system positions the panniers close to the bike centreline, and, thanks to its clean clutter-free design, ensures the rear of the bike still looks good with the panniers removed.

Twin LED Headlamps

Twin LED Headlamps

Each of the LED headlamps features low and high beams as well as a position lamp. Highly visible, the new headlamps offer significantly increased brightness to illuminate the way on night rides.
