KECS (KAWASAKI ELECTRONIC CONTROL SUSPENSION)
KECS provides both the flexibility to provide riding ease in a wide variety of riding conditions and the flexibility to promote sport riding. Riders can select from three types of payload (each with 5/-5 adjustment):-Rider only, Rider with luggage, Rider with passengers and luggage.
ELECTRONIC CRUISE CONTROL
The Kawasaki cruise control mechanism allows the desired speed to be sustained by simply pressing a button. If enabled, it is not necessary for the rider to continuously adjust the throttle. The Electronic Cruise Control is easily controlled from the left handle. The device can be adjusted at the touch of a button.
Kawasaki IMU allows 6 DOF (degrees of freedom) inertia to be tracked. Acceleration along longitudinal, transverse, and vertical axes, plus roll rate and pitch rate shall be calculated. The yaw rate is measured using Kawasaki's original program.
KCMF (KAWASAKI CORNERING MANAGEMENT FUNCTION)
The power of Kawasaki's state-of-the-art electronics has always been the extremely advanced programming that, using minimal hardware, gives the ECU a precise real-time image of what the chassis does.
KIBS (KAWASAKI INTELLIGENT ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM)
Kawasaki's high-precision supersport brake control system is now standard equipment for the Versys 1000 SE. This is the same basic framework used on the Ninja H2 and Ninja ZX-10R, with the programming revamped to accommodate the street performance parameters and the long-distance suspension.
INTEGRATED RIDING MODES
All-inclusive modes connecting KTRC, Power Mode, and KECS allow riders to effectively configure traction control, power transmission, and suspension characteristics to accommodate a driving situation. Riders can choose from three settings (Sport, Road, Rain) or a manual setting (Rider).
KQS (KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER)
During acceleration, the device senses that the shift lever has been turned on and sends a warning to the ECU to cut the ignition so that the next gear can be turned on without the need to use the clutch. KQS system automatically controls engine speed during deceleration, allowing you to go down.
POWER MODE SELECTION
The combination of Full Power or Low Power modes enables riders to adjust the power distribution to meet their needs and conditions. Although output at lower rpm is the same, Low Power mode limits performance to approximately 75% of Full Power and uses a milder throttle response.
New instrumentation with an innovative, high-tech architecture gives the Versys 1000 cockpit a very high-quality appearance. The analog tachometer is complemented by a full optical high-quality single-color TFT LCD monitor.
The well-named Comfort Seat features a thicker urethane cushioning to ensure support for long hours in the saddle while giving a comfortable knee bent to the taller riders, and the optional Low Seat Upgrade (20 mm lower) gives preference to easier access to the bottom.
RADIAL-MOUNT FRONT BRAKE CALIPERS
The ø310 mm front petal disks are now fitted with extremely stiff monobloc radial-mounted calipers, complemented by a radial-pump front brake master cylinder, which leads to a superb feel and immense stopping power.
ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH
Race-inspired clutch technology provides both a back-torque limiting feature and a very soft feel on the lever.
LED CORNERING LIGHTS
Lights installed into the shrouds help to light the road at night. Each of the three lights has a set direction which is triggered by a lean angle. When the bike tips forward, the lights fall in place to create a larger, lit path in the direction the bike is going.
TWIN LED HEADLAMPS
Each of the new LED headlamps has low and high beams as well as a place light. Highly noticeable, the current headlamps give substantially higher visibility to light the night trips.
The Versys 1000 SE provides an all-LED lighting kit from the latest twin headlamps and lightweight Lead turn signals to the new LED taillight and LED license plate bulb.
Hand covers provide improved protection from wind, which results in additional warmth while operating in cold weather. They also provide general safety for the hands of the pilot. Added Grip heaters offer improved warmth on cold days. The handles are entirely sealed, providing outstanding comfort.
LONG -TRAVEL SUSPENSION + SPORTY 17" WHEELS = FUN SPORTS RIDING ON A VARIETY OF STREET CONDITIONS
Kawasaki engineers have selected a long-distance suspension to allow riders to carve corners with aplomb.
SPORTY 17" WHEELS
Lightweight 6-spoke wheels measuring 17 "are perfect for sporty street action. Tyres chosen for their road sports abilities provide excellent cornering strength for more fun in the hills, high-speed stability, and a solid road appearance to complement the sporty character of the Versys 1000 SE.
The VERSYS 1000 SE features a wide windscreen with an adjustability width of 40 mm. Height can now be changed from the rider's seat (without equipment, using two buttons on the inside of the screen) to fit rider needs.
CLEAN MOUNT PANNIER SYSTEM - ACCESSORY
The attachment pannier mounting system allows simple, clean installation, keeping the panniers close to the middle of the bike line means that the rear of the bike looks nice with or without the panniers. (Disponible as an accessory). Colour matched covers are available.
The wide windscreen of the VERSYS 1000 SE model is fitted with a centrally positioned fan. Opening the vent decreases the downward energy in the cockpit, which ensures that the passenger is less likely to be pushed over at high speed.
HIGHLY DURABLE PAINT
Kawasaki's new Extremely Durable Paint and Extremely Durable Matte Paint (used on fuel tanks, L / R side caps, and L / R side caps) feature a special coat that allows marks to be healed, helping the paint to preserve its high-quality appearance.
HIGH PAYLOAD & CARRYING CAPACITY
The substantial payload of 220kg. A rear carrier (6kg capacity) is fitted as standard equipment.
The Bluetooth chip integrated into the instrument panel allows riders to attach wirelessly to their bikes. Using the "RIDEOLOGY THE APP" mobile program, a variety of instrument features can be accessed, leading to improved motorcycling experience.
A wide handlebar provides simple control, particularly for low-speed maneuvering. Positioned to provide a natural grip, it allows the rider's elbows to be gently bent while seated in a comfortable, upright position.
A compact sports silencer adds to a sleek modern model. Compact construction also offers sufficient space for optional attachment panels.
A high capacity generator generates enough energy to fuel the DC socket in the cockpit. The DC socket, which is now a standard feature, can be used to control small electronic devices. The socket is complemented by pre-wiring. There is a total of 40W of power available.
21-litre fuel tank contributes to the Versys 1000’s touring potential. With engine and transmission settings, the range (calculated) on one tank could be 400 km.
Wide connector pipes formerly oval, now round) connect the exhaust headers 1-4 and 2-3, leading to improved output at all rpm. (Reduced exhaust resistance results in an optimal exhaust flow)
