Top Features

Exciting In-Line Four Engine

A key to the Versys 1000’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 for 2019 enables the addition of Electronic Cruise Control, while also contributing to smooth, sporty power delivery.

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.

Assist & Slipper Clutch

Race-inspired clutch technology offers both a back-torque limiting function as well as a very light feel at the lever.

KECS (Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension)

Based on the semi-active system that debuted on the 2018 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.

 

On the Versys 1000 SE, KECS also includes electronically adjustable rear preload. Riders can choose from three payload modes (each with +5/-5 adjustment):
- Rider only
- Rider with luggage
- Rider with passenger and luggage

LED Cornering Lights (SE)

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.

Kawasaki Cornering Management Function - IMU-Equipped Total Engine & Chassis Management Package

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. On the Versys 1000, KCMF oversees the following systems:

KECS *
KIBS (including pitching management and corner braking management) * SE-only feature

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.

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.

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.

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.

High-Class Instrumentation

New instrumentation with an advanced, high-tech design gives the Versys 1000 cockpit a very high-class appearance. The analogue-style tachometer is complemented by a full digital LCD screen (STD model), or a high-grade full colour TFT LCD screen (SE model).
