2020 Versys 250 comes in a new color theme and looks a lot fresher than before. There appear to be no mechanical changes to the ADV…
After launching the amazing four cylinder 250cc ZX-25R, the Japanese automaker – Kawasaki, is now ready with its next motorcycle. The Indonesian unit of the motorcycle company – Kawasaki Motor Indonesia (KMI), has unveiled the 2020 version of the popular adventure tourer, the Versys-X 250 in the Southeast Asian country.
The new updated model now comes in a grey color option with new graphics. The stickers and the theme option makes the ADV look fresh and very different from its previous iterations. The motorcycle bears the Versys-X 250 logo on either side of the fuel tank.
Apart from the new color and graphics, the bike gets no other mechanical changes – be it in terms of styling, or the engine. It continues to be powered by the same dual-cylinder, eight-valve, 250 cc DOHC engine that produces a peak power of 34 PS at 11,500 rpm, and 21.7 Nm torque at 10,000 rpm. The motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox.
The bike gets a 290 mm disc at the front and a 220 mm disc at the rear. It has a ground clearance of 180 mm, with a saddle height of 815 mm.
The motorcycle comes in two variants, the lower version of which skips the presence of ABS and fog lamps. The entry variant is priced at IDR 67,900,000 on-road, which translates to roughly around 3,48,000 INR.
Kawasaki sells its sibling Versys 300 in India (which is yet to be updated to Bharat Stage 6 emission norms). Apart from a much needed price correction here (which may not come anyway), we hope the updated 300 gets this theme at least.
