2022 KAWASAKI Versys 1000 SE LT+

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY: Key enhancements bring Kawasaki’s finest electronic management technology to the Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle, resulting in precise chassis orientation awareness that assists your ability to adapt to a wide range of street riding conditions.

INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNIT: Compact IMU monitors inertia along 5 degrees of freedom. Acceleration along longitudinal, transverse and vertical axes, plus roll rate and pitch rate are measured. The yaw rate is calculated using Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modeling software. Inputs from the IMU give the ECU software an even clearer real-time picture of chassis orientation.

KAWASAKI CORNERING MANAGEMENT FUNCTION: From the entry, through the apex, to the corner exit, KCMF modulates brake force (KIBS) and engine power (KTRC) to facilitate smooth transitions from acceleration to braking, to assist you in tracing your intended line through the corner.

KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL: Kawasaki Traction Control covers a wide range of riding conditions, offering enhanced sport riding performance and peace of mind while you’re on the road. When turned on, you can select between three modes to choose the degree in which each mode intervenes during riding

KAWASAKI INTELLIGENT ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM: Kawasaki’s supersport-grade, high-precision brake management system is standard on the Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle. High-precision brake pressure control enables the hydraulic pressure to be modulated in much smaller increments than standard ABS systems, conserving lever feel when KIBS is active and ensuring ABS pulses feel light.

KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER: Dual-direction Kawasaki Quick Shifter allows both clutchless upshifts and downshifts for seamless acceleration and smooth deceleration.

SELECTABLE POWER CONTROL: The Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle comes with two power modes: Full and Low–allowing you to select power delivery to suit your preference and riding conditions.

OPTIMAL VISIBILITY: The Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle offers bright and white lighting via twin LED headlamps and LED taillight and license plate lighting.

GO FARTHER: With both touring and town riding in mind, the Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle is tuned for flexibility making it just as comfortable cruising at low rpm as it is when ridden on winding roads in the mid- to high-rpm range.

POWERFUL & EFFICIENT: The liquid-cooled, DOHC 1,043cc engine offers superb throttle response, strong torque across the rpm range and an enticing intake howl. Thanks to optimized fuel-injection settings, power delivery is linear and smooth for easy control and maneuverability at low rpm.

SMOOTH & RESPONSIVE POWER: Electronic Throttle Valves enable the Electronic Control Unit (ECU) to control the volume of both fuel and air delivered to the engine, resulting in smooth, natural engine response and output. Electronic Cruise Control is made possible also by the Electronic Throttle Valves.

RACE-INSPIRED: Assist and Slipper clutch technology offers a light lever pull plus a back-torque limiting function. When excessive engine braking occurs the slipper cam relieves pressure on the clutch plates to help prevent the rear tire from hopping or skidding.

CONFIDENCE INSPIRING: Highly rigid 4-piston, radial mount, monobloc front brake calipers grip large 310mm petal discs and pair with a radial-pump front master brake cylinder to produce superb feel and potent stopping power.

SMOOTH & ADAPTIVE: Long-travel suspension delivers a smooth ride on imperfect roads, allowing you to ride with confidence on various road conditions.

SLEEK & COMFORTABLE: With a design that boasts flowing body lines traceable from front to rear, the Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle’s styling highlights its fun, sporty nature while keeping rider and passenger comfort paramount.

SIGNATURE KAWASAKI STYLING: The design of the upper cowl and surrounding bodywork convey a strong Kawasaki Identity while also providing functional benefits. Along with adding to the Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle’s aggressive look, the upper cowling and wide fairings provide enhanced weather protection and comfort for longer rides.

SLEEK & FUNCTIONAL: The front fender provides ample protection for the fork inner tubes, while long, slim reflectors combine to form a sporty look.

SPORTY LOOK & PERFORMANCE: A compact, short muffler contributes to a tight aesthetic and detailed finish. Connector pipes on the header connect 1-4 and 2-3 contributing to performance at all rpm.

ALL-DAY COMFORT: A wide handlebar offers easy control and a natural grip, contributing to a relaxed upright stance while low and forward footpeg placements contribute to a spacious riding position.

EASY ADJUSTABILITY: For optimal control and comfort, a 6-way adjustable brake lever and a 5-way adjustable clutch lever allow you to choose the position that suits your hand size and preference.

PERFORMANCE MILE AFTER MILE: Open-road adventure awaits when you ride the Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle. Featuring state-of-the-art electronics and highest in-class comfort levels, if you’re looking for next-level adventure, you’ll find it aboard the Versys 1000 SE LT+.

KAWASAKI ELECTRONIC CONTROL SUSPENSION: The Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle's advanced suspension system adapts to riding conditions, providing the ideal amount of damping in real time. The system incorporates Showa's Skyhook EERA (Electronically Equipped Ride Adjustment) technology, carefully tuned by Kawasaki engineers to preserve a sporty riding character while delivering a smoother ride. EERA continually adapts to the road surface in real time to enable light steering on highways and a more planted feel in wet conditions.

RIDE WITH CONFIDENCE: Integrated Riding Modes allow you to adjust traction control, power delivery and suspension character at the touch of a button, delivering confident riding in a variety of situations.

TAKE CONTROL FROM YOUR PHONE: Bluetooth® Smartphone Connectivity (using RIDEOLOGY THE APP*) connects you with your bike like never before, allowing you to view vehicle info, riding log, phone notifications, and general settings. *RIDEOLOGY THE APP is not intended for use during vehicle operation. Only use RIDEOLOGY THE APP when the vehicle is not being operated and it is safe to do so.

GO THE DISTANCE: Superb fuel efficiency combined with a 5.5-gallon fuel tank means less stops at the pump and outstanding cruising range.

FULLY ADJUSTABLE: The large adjustable windscreen is vented to smooth the airflow and reduce buffeting. A stepless adjustment system allows height to be tailored to your preference.

TAKE IT ALL WITH YOU: KQR™ 28-liter saddlebag are easily attached and removed without tools for increased convenience. The Versys® 1000 SE LT+ motorcycle can accommodate both an accessory top case and the standard hard saddlebags simultaneously.
