Kawasaki Versys-X 300 adventure tourer launched at Rs 4.6 lakh

Kawasaki Versys-X 300 adventure tourer launched at Rs 4.6 lakh

Kawasaki has launched the smallest adventurer tourer, Versys-X300, in India.

"What makes Versys-X 300 versatile is comfortable highway cruising and easy riding in the city", he added.

Versys-X 300 promises to cater to a new set of customers, and has no competitor in India in the current range. It is definitely not the cheapest but definitely the smallest-displacement model in the entire adventure touring category in India. The new Versys-X 300 was first showcased at the 2016 EICMA show and is now the smallest bike in Kawasaki's adventure touring motorcycles range, which also includes the Versys 650 and the Versys 1000.

Under the hood of the Kawasaki Versys-X300, there is a fuel-injected, 296 cc engine, which would be capable of churning out a maximum power of 40 bhp at 11,500 revs per minute along with a peak torque of 25.7 Nm at 10,000 revs per minute.

Deploying those apps is also a problem, because each platform has its own unique specifications and processes that need to be tackled.

A statement from Kawasaki said that a heat management technology promotes airflow when riding to help dissipate engine heat. The bike comes with a kerb weight of 175 kg and gets a 17-litre fuel, which is ideal for touring.

The introduction of the Versys-X 300 reiterates IKM's product strategy of building its portfolio based on the two midsize - 300cc and 650cc - engine platforms, a point highlighted in earlier Autocar Professional reports. It comes mated to a six-speed transmission. The bike comes with off-road friendly bits such as 19-inch spoke wheels, long travel suspension, wide reach bars and a commendably low seat height. The design is said redirecting the air smartly, which helps to keep parts - like the tank and the frame - cooler than before, for further increase in rider's comfort.

Priced at Rs 460,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi / Mumbai), the Kawasaki Versys-X 300 is powered by a liquid-cooled, parallel-twin, four-stroke, 39bhp, 296cc engine which also powers the Ninja 300 which is assembled by the Japanese bikemaker at its facility in Chakan. The bike runs on the same 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled 1043 engine. It gets a new IMU with traction control and cornering ABS along with riding modes. The Ninja 1000 has rivals such as Suzuki GSX-S1000F and BMW R1200RS in the market.
