The Kawasaki Versys 250 facelift has been launched in Indonesia. The updated Kawasaki Versys 250 has been launched at a starting price of IDR 67,900,000 on-road (Rs 3.47 lakh). There are no mechanical changes to the motorcycle but it only gets aesthetic changes.
The Kawasaki Versys series boasts of some of the most versatile motorcycles out there. While we in the Indian market received the Kawasaki Versys 300, the Indonesian market got the Versys 250. Now, Kawasaki has updated the Versys 250 in Indonesia .
The biggest update comes in the form of a new colour option and new graphics as well. The new graphics are seen on either side of the fuel tank. The entry-level variant of the motorcycle has lost the fog lamps and ABS that was until now available as standard equipment with the motorcycle.
Mechanically though, the motorcycle remains the same. The Kawasaki Versys 250 is powered by the same liquid-cooled, 250cc, parallel-twin engine with a maximum power output of 33.5bhp and a peak torque output of 22Nm. A 6-speed gearbox drives the rear wheel.
In proper ADV motorcycle style, the Versys too rides on a 19-inch spoked wheel up front and a 17-inch spoked wheel at the rear. Suspension duties are handled by a 41mm telescopic fork up front and a monoshock at the rear. Petal discs handle braking duties at the front and at the rear.
The Kawasaki Versys 250 is not expected to debut in India anytime soon as we have the Versys 300. However, we do expect Kawasaki to launch the BS-VI emissions norms compliant version of the Versys 300 soon.
Kawasaki recently made headlines for the launch of the Ninja ZX-25R in the Indonesian market. Now that is a motorcycle we want in India. However, we doubt it would be launched here as it would be too expensive if launched here.
