2021 VERSYS-X 300 for Sale at Bowen Hills Kawasaki in Bowen Hills, QLD | Specifications and Review Information
ANY ROAD, ANY TIME CAPABILITY ON UNPAVED ROADS
The 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.
The light clutch lever pull and easy control afforded by the Assist & Slipper Clutch greatly contributes to comfortable, stress-free riding - especially when spending long stints in the saddle. When the engine is operating at normal rpm the assist cam functions as a self-servo mechanism, pulling the clutch hub and operating plate together to compress the clutch plates. This allows the total clutch spring load to be reduced, resulting in a lighter clutch lever pull when operating the clutch.
Dual petal disc brakes (290 mm petal discs at the front and 220 mm at the rear) provide sure stopping power.
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.
The combination of a tall upper cowl design inspired by adventure models, and a large-size windshield provides superior wind protection, adding to long-distance riding comfort and contributing to adventure-style looks.

2-int-1 exhaust system, made of resistant stainless steel, contributes to low- and mid-range performance and a smooth, step-free power curve. With ground clearance on unpaved roads a design consideration, their elegantly curved shape keeps the headers close to the engine. Single honeycomb catalyser in the collector pipe contributes to clean emissions that clear Euro 4 standards. Short-style right-side silencer is positioned away from rider and passenger.
6 SPEED TRANSMISSION
Relatively short gearing offers a balance between fuel economy and low-mid-range power feeling and response. A long 6th gear contributes to the high-speed cruising range. Range (measured per WMTC Mode) on a single tank exceeds 400 km, allowing significant time between refuelling stops.
17L FUEL TANK
Slim design of the 17-litre fuel tank makes it easier for riders to reach the ground with their feet.
REAR SEAT AND PASSENGER GRIPS
Large, double seat is on par with the seat of the Versys 650, offering excellent comfort. Complementing the rider's comfortable seat, a wide rear seating area and ergonomically sculpted grab bars deliver superior passenger comfort. The rear seat area is flat, and together with the rear carrier offers an excellent platform for securing luggage.
SLIM UPRIGHT RIDING POSITION
The Versys-X's slim, upright riding position and a wide handlebar offer high controllability as well as the comfort for long-distance riding. A relatively low seat height and a seat design that is slim at the front make it easy for a wide range of riders to easily reach the ground with their feet.
SPORTY 19"/17" FRONT AND REAR WHEELS
While the Versys-X 300 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. The wire spoked wheels feature aluminium rims to help minimise unsprung weight.
HEAT MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY
Large openings in the fairing promote airflow when riding to help dissipate engine heat. Patented radiator fan cover located behind the radiator directs hot air down and away from the rider, significantly increasing comfort when stuck in heavy traffic. Redirecting the air also helps keep the tank, frame and other parts that contact the rider cooler, further increasing rider comfort.

Sophisticated instrument design features a large analogue tachometer flanked by warning lamps on one side and gear position indicator and multi-function LCD screen on the other. In addition to outstanding convenience the instrumentation offers a premium feel on par with larger-displacement models.
