With the Suzuki Vstrom 650 now here to compete with it, the Kawasaki Versys 650 has its work cut out. As a result, the MY2019 bike has been launched in India. However, the only change that has been applied are two new colour schemes (Metallic Moondust Grey & Metallic Flat Spark Black). The rest of the bike, well, it continues unchanged. Which isn’t a bad thing because the Versys 650 was and still remains a seriously capable motorcycle.
Speaking on the occasion Mr. Yutaka Yamashita, Managing Director of India Kawasaki Motors Pvt.Ltd., said, “Versys 650 offers good performance, has versatility and fun-factor. For riders it is actually a real treat to ride in any condition. It also happens to be the most affordable adventure bike in the 650cc segment. Keeping festive season in mind, we have worked rigorously to ensure that customers get the delivery of their brand new Versys 650 on their preferred auspicious day.”
The Kawasaki Versys 650 MY 2019 has been priced at INR 6,69,000 ex-showroom Delhi. Bookings are open and customers can visit the nearest showroom for booking related information.
