Kawasaki has launched the smallest adventurer tourer, Versys-X300, in India. The motorcycle was showcased at the 2016 EICMA and was reported to come to India soon. The Kawasaki Versys-X300 has been given an exclusive showroom (Mumbai) price tag of Rs. 4.6 lakh and would be a CKD unit, being assembled in the company’s Chakan plant in Maharashtra.

The Kawasaki Versys-X300 is built on a steel frame and gets 41mm fork up front along with a gas-charged, Uni-Track monoshock at the rear. The big 19-inch front wheel is an indication that it would be a great off-roader, though it is a road-focused motorcycle. The front wheel gets 290mm petal disc brake while the rear gets 220mm unit. ABS is given as a standard equipment.

The new Kawasaki tourer gets a tall frame with semi-fairing and a tall windscreen. The single-seat cluster is wide and would be a good option for long distance riding.

Under the hood of the Kawasaki Versys-X300, there is a fuel-injected, 296 cc engine, which would be capable of churning out a maximum power of 40 bhp at 11,500 revs per minute along with a peak torque of 25.7 Nm at 10,000 revs per minute. The power is sent down to the wheel via a 6-speed gearbox. This engine is a little similar to the one seen on the Kawasaki Ninja 300, barring the tuning which makes it good for low and mid-range grunt.

The Managing Director of Kawasaki India has said that the new Versys-X300 will be offering some high-level of riding excitement and would be an ideal option for highways as well as normal city riding. The motorcycle will lock horns against the likes of the already-popular Royal Enfield Himalayan and the Suzuki V-Storm 250.
