A month back, TMCBlog reported that the Japanese motorcycle company, Kawasaki is getting prepared to introduce the smallest motorcycle in its adventure tourer range, the Versys 250. The Indian subsidiary of the Japanese motorcycle company has also reportedly imported two of the bikes secretly, codenamed LE250B and LE250C. According to TMCBlog, LE650C is a codename for Versys 650 and hence there is a good chance that one of the imported bikes in India could end up being Versys 250.

The Versys 250 has a 249cc, twin-cylinder, 8-Valve engine that churns out 32bhp of maximum power and 21Nm of peak torque. It is the same engine that is also seen on other quarter-litre bikes from Kawasaki such as the naked street Z250 and the earlier Ninja 250R. The bike will be launched in India only by the mid of 2017, and by that time there will be many competitors for it in the form of the KTM 390 Adventure, Royal Enfield Himalayan, and the BMW G310S. Apart from Kawasaki, its Japanese counterpart, Suzuki is also looking forward to introducing a competitor in this segment with the Suzuki V-Storm 250, but a very limited information is available on the same.

Expected Price?

Since it will obviously sit above the naked Z250, it is expected to be priced near Rs 3.5 lakh. Stay tuned as Autoportal updates you with more information on the same.
