On the cusp of the up to date mannequin’s India launch, the outgoing model of the Kawasaki Versys 650 is being supplied with a sizeable low cost.

At EICMA final 12 months, Kawasaki rolled out the up to date 2022 model of its Versys 650 middleweight journey tourer. It comes with enhancements like a brand new TFT show, the addition of traction management, and up to date styling, amongst different issues. However the fundamentals of the motorbike stay largely the identical. This up to date model is but to launch in India (we anticipate it to reach within the subsequent month or two), so if you happen to’re keen to forego the modifications, you could possibly get fairly a candy deal on the outgoing mannequin. Anzen Kawasaki in Mumbai is providing a sizeable low cost of Rs 1.5 lakh on the current-gen Versys 650.

The one circumstances are that the supply is barely legitimate until April 30, and solely relevant if you happen to take the two+2 12 months prolonged guarantee bundle. In case you test these bins, the on-road worth of the motorbike drops from Rs 9.25 lakh to Rs 7.75 lakh. The ex-showroom worth of the Versys 650 at the moment stands at Rs 7.15 lakh and is predicted to go up barely with the launch of the up to date mannequin.

As for the present bike on which the supply is out there, the options listing consists of semi-digital instrumentation that includes a gear place indicator, and an adjustable windscreen. Bits that stay unchanged in comparison with the up to date model are the upside-down fork that’s adjustable for preload and rebound damping, the preload-adjustable monoshock, and the 66hp, 61Nm, 649cc parallel-twin motor.

The Versys just lately acquired some new competitors within the type of the Triumph Tiger Sport 660, which is a faster, extra highly effective and extra feature-rich machine, however can also be a very good deal costlier (Rs 8.95 lakh, ex-showroom) and it doesn’t supply the identical stage of suspension functionality.
