Some time back, premium and sports manufacturer Kawasaki introduced an updated version of its Kawasaki Versys 650 at EICMA 2021 and now the company has released a teaser to launch this bike in India. Some time ago this bike was seen during testing and it is expected that this bike will be launched in the first week of July itself.
The updated middleweight tourer motorcycle will mainly see a few new features as well as some minor cosmetic changes. The 2022 Kawasaki Versys 650 gets a new front fairing, which looks similar to its larger version, the Kawasaki Versys 1000.
While the rest of the bodywork remains the same, the updated model gets a revised headlight, four-step adjustable flyscreen, a sharper looking engine cowl and fresh livery. Talking about the engine, there will be no change in this motorcycle.
The updated Kawasaki Versys 650 will be powered by its existing 649cc, liquid-cooled, twin cylinder engine that delivers 66 Bhp of peak power and 61 Nm of peak torque. The 2022 Kawasaki Versys 650 now gets Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC).
It will be a two-tier traction control system. The two levels of TC modulation and the option to turn it off completely helps the riders control the bike while riding the bike on the roads. Apart from this, the old instrument cluster has been removed in it.
It has a new TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity. Usually the new features come with a premium command and have been given in approx. According to the information, with the new update, the price of Kawasaki Versys 650 can be seen to increase by around Rs 50,000-70,000.
It is worth noting that the current model of 2021 is priced at Rs 7,15,000 (ex-showroom Delhi). The Kawasaki Versys 650 is the most comfortable motorcycle for road-based adventure travel. It competes with the Triumph Tiger Sport 660 and Honda CB500X present in the market.
These motorcycles offer a similar road-focused riding. However, if you want a little more off-road capability from your adventure motorcycle, then the Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT could be a better option for you. Let us know that the company has recently launched its 2022 Kawasaki Ninja 400.
