FEATURES

SMARTPHONE CONNECTIVITY

A Bluetooth chip built into the instrument panel 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.

KECS (KAWASAKI ELECTRONIC CONTROL SUSPENSION)

KECS adapts to road and riding conditions in real time, providing the ideal amount of damping called for. On the Versys 1000 SE, KECS also includes electronically adjustable rear preload.

HIGHLY DURABLE PAINT

Kawasaki’s new Highly Durable Paint and Highly Durable Matte Paint feature a special coat that allows scratches to repair themselves, enabling the paint to maintain its high-quality finish*.

EXCITING IN-LINE FOUR ENGINE

The 1,043 cm3 In-line Four, tuned for flexibility, offers superb throttle response, strong torque at all rpm, and a seductive intake howl – ensuring riders are treated to a physically and aurally exhilarating sensation with every twist of the throttle.

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.

KQS (KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER)

Complementing the Versys 1000’s exhilarating engine character, the quick shifter enables clutchless upshifts and downshifts for seamless acceleration and quick and easy deceleration.

*Notes (Highly Durable Paint):
1. In some cases, it takes more than one week for recovery.
2. The paint will not recover in the case of scratches caused by a coin or key, or zip fasteners.
