2019 Kawasaki Versys 1000 bookings open
- The heavily updated Kawasaki Versys 1000, which was unveiled at the 2018 EICMA, can now be booked in India for a token amount of Rs 1.50 lakh.
- The exciting news is that Kawasaki plans to bring the bike to India via the CKD route, which should make it more affordable as compared to the outgoing model. So, expect the 2019 Versys 1000 to be priced around the Rs 11 lakh mark.
- Pre-bookings are open from November 16 to December 31, but deliveries of the bike will commence only after April 2019. Only a limited number of units are planned to be assembled initially and bookings will close after the target is achieved.
- The 2019 model gains a fresh design thanks to the new fairing with slicker twin LED headlamps and a more pronounced beak. The instrument cluster is also updated with a new layout.
- The 2019 Kawasaki Versys 1000 is powered by a 1,043 cc, inline-4 engine that pumps out 120 bhp of power and 102 Nm of peak torque. The engine is liquid-cooled and also features Electronic Throttle Valves.
