Aging Liter: Kawasaki has updated the Versys 1000 crossover

Thu, 29 Nov 2018

In addition to the upgraded basic version, the SE version with semi-active suspension is presented. For the 2019 model year, the asphalt tourer, built around a 1,043cc (120 hp and 102 Nm) inline-four, received an electronic throttle, cruise control, KTRC traction control, and Sport, Road, Rain and Rider power modes to choose from. Moreover, the introduction of the IMU inertial sensor, according to Japanese designers, made the electronics work more delicately than before. For a surcharge, a two-way quickshifter is offered, which, by the way, is included in the standard equipment on the SE version. The more complete Versys SE crossover is already “in the base” equipped with cornering lights, an enlarged windshield, a color TFT instrument panel and an adaptive Showa suspension under its own name KECS (Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension).
