Kawasaki 2018 Versys-x 300 SE
Brand: Kawasaki Bike Type: Adventure
Any Road, Any Time + Capability on Unpaved Roads
The VERSYS-X 300 is an adventure-styled touring model that builds on the any-road any-time performance of Kawasaki’s VERSYS models by adding increased capability on unpaved roads. At 300cc, the VERSYS-X 300 is the smallest-displacement model in the touring category, and the only model of its kind. Like you would expect from a bike designed to be the ideal travel partner, it offers the best comfort and convenience of any 300cc model. More manageable in both weight and power, and more readily available than many larger-displacement models, the VERSYS-X 300 offers easy access to motorcycle adventure. A wide range of accessories are available: all the equipment necessary for comfortable long-distance riding.
Parallel Twin Engine
Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve Parallel Twin delivers smooth, responsive power at low and medium rpm and hard hitting power at high rpm. Already smoother than a single-cylinder, the engine features a balancer to help dampen engine vibrations, contributing to a very smooth ride feel as well as comfortable cruising.
Dual petal disc brakes (290 mm petal discs at the front and 220 mm at the rear) provide sure stopping power.
In addition to the very effective petal disc brakes, customers looking for added degree of reassuring braking performance will find standard ABS fitted front and rear. Compact new Bosch 10M ABS unit contributes to both weight and space savings.
The combination of a tall upper cowl design inspired by adventure models, and a large-size windshield provides superior wind protection, adding to long-distance riding comfort and contributing to adventure-style looks.
resistant stainless steel, contributes to low- and mid-range performance and a smooth, step-free power curve. Exhaust header pipes ø31.8 mm diameter on the Versys-X 300 are optimised for low-mid range performance. With ground clearance on unpaved roads a design consideration, their elegantly curved shape keeps the headers close to the engine. Single honeycomb catalyser in the collector pipe contributes to clean emissions that clear Euro 4 standards. Short-style right-side silencer is positioned away from rider and passenger.
6 Speed Transmission
Relatively short gearing offers a balance between fuel economy and low-mid-range power feeling and response. A long 6th gear contributes to the high-speed cruising range. Range (measured per WMTC Mode) on a single tank exceeds 400 km, allowing significant time between refuelling stops.
Rear Seat and Passenger Grips
Large, double seat is on par with the seat of the Versys 650, offering excellent comfort. Complementing the rider’s comfortable seat, a wide rear seating area and ergonomically sculpted grab bars deliver superior passenger comfort. The rear seat area is flat, and together with the rear carrier offers an excellent platform for securing luggage.
Slim Upright Riding Position
The Versys-X’s slim, upright riding position and a wide handlebar offer high controllability as well as the comfort for long-distance riding. A relatively low seat height and a seat design that is slim at the front make it easy for a wide range of riders to easily reach the ground with their feet
Impressive Adventure Styling
Large-volume bodywork and imposing adventure styling give the impression that the Versys-X is a much larger-displacement machine. In contrast to the street-focused Versys models, the rugged design of the Versys-X looks very much at home off the pavement. The Versys-X’s long, tall upper cowl design was inspired by adventure models. A chin spoiler contributes to the sharp, aggressive Kawasaki image.
Sporty 19″/17″ Rear Wheels
While the Versys-X was not designed for off-road use, 19” front and 17” rear spoke wheels give it greater capability on unpaved roads than its larger, street-focused brothers. The wire spoked wheels feature aluminium rims to help minimise unsprung weight.
Long Travel Suspension
Using long-travel suspension enables the Versys-X to deliver riding excitement across a wide range of riding situations. Not all streets in
the real world are made of circuit-smooth pavement. Road imperfections (bumps, potholes) are far from rare, and many streets are not even paved. The long-travel suspension is designed to easily soak up road imperfections, even when travelling on unpaved roads. Excellent feedback from the front end contributes to rider confidence and a high level of riding excitement, while the linked rear suspension offers both riding stability and ride comfort.
