Kawasaki has dropped an adventure themed entry level bike into its Versys line with the reveal of the Versys 300X. While having some of the styling characteristics of the venerable KLR650 including the spoked wheels. the new 300X is not intended as an off-road machine but rather the new small Versys offers riders the benefits of ADV ergonomics including an upright seating position, a small windscreen and a broad seat with accompanying rear carrier platform. Also in the ADV mode the bike has a 19 inch from rim, a 17 inch rear rim, a 41mm Showa long travel front fork and hooks for strapping down luggage. The Versys 300X borrows power from the 296cc twin that is found in the Ninja 300 so this lightweight machine should easily have the get up and go to make highway riding comfortable. Small displacement touring should also be in the works as the 17l fuel tank should provide the new bike with an impressive range. The Canadian MSRP is at the moment TBD.
