India Kawasaki Motors Pvt. Ltd. announced the launch of the 2022 Versys 650. The Versys 650 will be available in ‘Candy Lime Green’ and ‘Metallic Phantom Silver’ colours at a starting price of Rs 7.36 lakh (Ex-showroom). It returns to Kawasaki’s line-up with several upgrades including Kawasaki TRaction Control (KTRC), a new TFT Color Instrument panel with Bluetooth smartphone connectivity. It also gets a sharper front cowl styling, LED headlight, and an adjustable windshield.
The Versys 650 features a powerful liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649-cc parallel-twin engine, which creates strong low-mid range torque and facilitates smooth power delivery. This mill produces 66 bhp and 6.2 kgm of peak torque. Kawasaki’s adventure-style tourer is a balanced combination of power, comfort, features and technology.
A full range of Kawasaki Genuine Accessories is available, allowing riders to further enhance the Versys 650 to better suit their preferences. Options for the Versys 650 include a new USB outlet with dual covers for high water resistance, engine guards, a tank pad and a windshield kit that is lower for better wind resistance. LED auxiliary light sets, hand covers, a meter cover, a GPS navigation bracket, oil filler caps, hard saddlebag sets and top case sets with fitting kits are also available.
With bookings open, deliveries of the 2022 Versys 650 are expected to begin in the first week of July. The Versys 650 will compete with models like the Honda CB500X, Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT and the Triumph Tiger Sport 660.
