Could Kawasaki be working on a new full-sized adventure bike, a Versys 1000?
French website Moto-Net.com seems to think so; they’ve published what they claim are spy shots of the new bike; they say the machine will be unveiled in Milan in November.
The bike they’ve photographed looks like it’s powered by an inline-four, which isn’t the usual choice for studly off-road adventurers; however, like their four-wheeled SUV counterparts, more and more of these adventure bikes are seeing less and less off-road action, so it would likely fit in fine with other similar bikes on the market right now.
Not digging the styling.
Yeah, it needs one of those short faux-motoX front fenders.
That would improve the looks considerably.
That bike looks amazing. Enough horsepower to wheelie and enough braking to stoppie, even with full luggage.
(I’m a little concerned that the bike appears to do it alone, without rider – I might need to tie it down before I leave it alone in the garage)
