KECS (KAWASAKI ELECTRONIC CONTROL SUSPENSION)

Based on the semi-active system that debuted on the Ninja ZX-10R SE, KECS adapts to road and riding conditions in real time, providing the ideal amount of damping called for. Combining high-level mechanical components with the latest electronic control technology, KECS offers both the suppleness to offer riding comfort in a wide range of riding situations, as well as the firm damping to facilitate sport riding. The tyres feel planted, delivering confidence when cornering.

LED CORNERING LIGHTS

LED cornering lights, sets of three lights built into each side of the fairing, help illuminate the road when cornering. 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 41 the Versys 1000’s exhilarating engine character, a contactless-type quick shifter enables clutchless upshifts and downshifts for seamless acceleration and quick and easy deceleration.

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.

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.

CLASS-LEADING BRAKES

Large, ø310 mm front 6 petal discs are gripped by opposed 4-piston radial-mount monobloc calipers with differentiated diameter pistons: ø32 mm upper, ø30 mm lower. The brakes are wrapped in sporty 17″wheels assuring a confidence inspiring touring package.
