The Japanese automaker Kawasaki has introduced a standard variant of the Vereys 1000 for 2022, making the motorcycle more affordable for the mass. The new model will be the base model of the lineup and will be placed below the S and SE trims.

The new standard model is nothing new but the previous standard model that was present in the brand’s portfolio for almost a decade and was recently replaced with the S and SE models that came with better specifications to keep up with the competition.

So basically, what Kawasaki has done is, re-introduced the base model so that it makes sense to the audience looking for an affordable Versys that does not have unnecessary features and only offers what is required for touring.

Having said that, the new base model will not have features like a TFT dash, cornering lights, riding modes, electronic suspension, special paint schemes, and every other fancy feature that are present in S and SE variants.

However, the brand has offered the features that justify the pricing and is necessary, including traction control, cornering ABS, full LED lighting, and cruise control.

In addition to that, the new base model has been able to shred 2 kg of weight, thanks to the absence of extra features, and now it weighs at around 253 kg.

Moving to the powertrain, it will come with the same 999 cc inline four-cylinder motor that can generate a maximum power of 118 bhp and a peak torque of 101 Nm. The power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed gearbox.

Regarding pricing, the standard Versys 1000 will be offered at 12,099 GBP (approximately ₹ 12.27 lakh) and will hit the Indian shores by next year.
