The Versys is as much an ADV bike as a Harley Sportster is a track bike... ....its 100% a sport touring bike..the tires and suspension tell the story.

Will it go off road, well yes of course it will....will it handle it ...no, not very well it won't.... sure a few fire trails and some dirt roads are no problem, but try and push it a little and you will soon find out how bad it really is in the dirt....

Anyone who has ever ridden a true adventure bike knows what Im talking about...there is no comparison between the 2 when the road ends.



I have rode a true adventure bike off road mostly gravel and some two track and the V1 would be a poor excuse for one ..
The V1 is a sport touring bike …. and a good one at that ...

Thought I'd post some details about the rumours coming out of Japan, namely that the 2019 V1K will be a part of the 4 new bikes unveiled by Kawasaki at the forthcoming EICMA show.

Take the photo below with a pinch of salt (artists impression and all that..) but the 2019 V1K is rumoured to be sporting updates to the electric suspension and the addition of the Bosch 6-axis IMU (inertial sensor) with cornering ABS (presumably KIBS), as per the 2019 Z1000SX.

More when known.

Thanks for the update. ...  TBH I'm bursting to see what the new Versys 1K will be like    :002:

If it would be true that means they read the forum (include my post ;) )

I see new bodywork. I see baby s**t yellow paint that makes me want to grab a bucket...  :004:

If we see electronic suspension and multi-axis ABS I predict there will be a significant price hike.

With changes like those I will be stunned if they do not upgrade the infamous windscreen and at least the slope of the seat.

That is the rub. And the majority will not really make any difference to the bike and how it behaves in real life.

I would consider a new one but not in that colour. Though if I got maxton to build me a shock and also one off their fork kits and fit it myself, I could probably live without the cruise control and keep what I've got.
