The good times don’t stop rolling with the new Kawasaki Versys 650, as the 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 is confirmed to be coming to the United States as well. We already got a glimpse of the new Kawasaki Versys 1000 from yesterday’s leaked photos, which showed the revised bodywork from Kawasaki.
Getting official details now, we know that the 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 makes relatively minor improvements technically over the previous model. Longer travel suspension has been added, and the 17″ wheels have been beefed up, both in order to aid going on off-road excursions.
Like on the Versys 650, Kawasaki has reinforced the Versys 1000 chassis to support extra weight and panniers. The 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 also now has a center-stand.
The 1,043cc motor remains the same however, and comes with a slipper clutch. As before, the new Kawasaki Versys 1000 comes the ABS and three-level traction control packages as standard.
European pricing hasn’t been revealed, and American pricing will be released at the AIMExpo in October.
