Kawasaki has discontinued its top-of-the-line adventure tourer Versys 1000 in India due to lack of demand. Priced at Rs 13.28 lakh (ex-showrom), the Kawasaki Versys 1000 was a long range tourer and it lacked on the feature front against Triumph Tiger and Honda Africa Twin. Experiencing lack of demand for this bike, the Japanese brand decided to emphasise on the more affordable Versys models in the lineup.

This engine churns out 120 bhp of peak power and 102 Nm of peak torque. For braking duty, the bike gets dual 310 mm front disc brakes and single 250 mm rear disc brake combined with dual-channel ABS.
