2021 Kawasaki Versys 1000 S Revealed
With the launch of the latest Versys 1000 S, Kawasaki expanded its Versys 1000 line-up in Europe.
The Versys 1000 set comprises the standard Versys 1000 SE, the top specifier Versys 1000 in India, and now the Versys 1000 S which is between the two slots.
The new Versys 1000 S is fitted with a 1,043cc, inline, 4-cylinder liquid-cooled engine generating 120hp at 9,000rpm and a torque of 102Nm at 7 500rpm.
The 2021 Kawasaki Versys 1000 S is very similar to the SE variant. The Versys 1000 S The device offers features such as a smartphone, heated handles, cornering lights, a quick change, and self-healing paint from Kawasaki. The most notable difference between the two models is that the S misses out on the electronic suspension. The Versys 1000 SE 2021 has been updated to include Showa Skyhook.
The 2021 Kawasaki Versys 1000 S, on the other hand, gets suspension that is manually adjustable for preload and rebound damping, just like the base variant that is sold here.
Currently, only €14,227 (Rs 12:24 lakh), approximately € 1,900 (Rs 1,63 lakh) below SE have been made available to Versys 1000 S in European countries. The website for Kawasaki Europe does not currently have the base variant and it remains to be seen if the new S serves as a point of entry into Versys. If so, we can assume that the bike will hit the coasts of India sometime next year.
