2018 VERSYS-X 300
ANY ROAD, ANY TIME + CAPABILITY ON UNPAVED ROADSThe VERSYS-X 300 is an adventure-styled touring model that builds on the any-road any-time performance of Kawasaki's VERSYS models by adding increased capability on unpaved roads. At 300cc, the VERSYS-X 300 is the smallest-displacement model in the touring category, and the only model of its kind. Like you would expect from a bike designed to be the ideal travel partner, it offers the best comfort and convenience of any 300cc model. More manageable in both weight and power, and more readily available than many larger-displacement models, the VERSYS-X 300 offers easy access to motorcycle adventure. A wide range of accessories are available: all the equipment necessary for comfortable long-distance riding.
PARALLEL TWIN ENGINE
In addition to the very effective petal disc brakes, customers looking for added degree of reassuring braking performance will find standard ABS fitted front and rear. Compact new Bosch 10M ABS unit contributes to both weight and space savings.

IMPRESSIVE ADVENTURE STYLING
POWERFUL PARALLEL TWIN ENGINE
Efficiently-tuned 296 cm3 Parallel Twin engine produces smooth, torquey power at low and medium rpm and powerful acceleration at high rpm. Smooth power delivery and strong low-end torque facilitate slow-speed manoeuvres, offering both a high level of control when making minute throttle adjustments and a gratifying rush of acceleration in the lower rpm ranges, while low vibrations care of a balancer, and ample top end offer comfortable highway cruising.
RUGGED BACKBONE FRAME
The all-new highly rigid backbone frame was designed to handle external shocks, contributing to the VERSYS-X's unpaved-road capability. The sturdy frame is also able to support a passenger and optional luggage, making the VERSYS-X a very capable touring partner.
LONG TRAVEL SUSPENSION
Using long-travel suspension enables the VERSYS-X to deliver riding excitement across a wide range of riding situations. Not all streets in the real world are made of circuit-smooth pavement. Road imperfections (bumps, potholes) are far from rare, and many streets are not even paved. The long-travel suspension is designed to easily soak up road imperfections, even when travelling on unpaved roads. Excellent feedback from the front end contributes to rider confidence and a high level of riding excitement, while the linked rear suspension offers both riding stability and ride comfort.
19"/17" SPOKE WHEELS WITH MULTI PURPOSE TYRES
While the VERSYS-X was not designed for off-road use, 19" front and 17" rear spoke wheels give it greater capability on unpaved roads than its larger, street-focused brothers. Multi-purpose tubed tyres also contribute to capability on unpaved roads, while tyre tread pattern adds to the VERSYS-X's adventurestyle image.
LARGE-VOLUME BODYWORK AND ADVENTURE-STYLE DESIGN
The VERSYS-X's large-volume bodywork and impressive adventure styling give it the imposing appearance of a much larger-displacement machine. In contrast to the street-focused VERSYS models, the rugged design of the VERSYS-X looks very much at home off the pavement.
