Segment: All-road

With a technical package that pretty much makes it a go-anywhere bike, the all-new Kawasaki Versys 1000 SE LT+ was unveiled at the 2018 EICMA, in Milan.

The bike's frame is a five-piece aluminum construction, with the 1,043 cc four-cylinder being used as a stressed member. Kawasaki's contactless-type quickshifter (KQS) offers fast, full-power upshifts and clutchless downshifts to improve both comfort and performance, while the Electronic Control Suspension (KECS) system is shared with the H2 SX SE+ hypersport bike.
