Kawasaki 2019 Versys-X 300 ABS Sports Touring Motorcycle – Features and Price

Parallel Twin Engine

Excellent acceleration is made possible by the engine’s strong low and mid-range torque, as well as the optimal airbox design and intake duct. The airbox is likewise tiny and thin, resulting in a narrower overall chassis width, enabling riders to put more weight on their heels without slipping. All rpm performance is improved with lighter pistons. As a result of its lower compression ratio, the Kawasaki 2019 Versys-X 300 ABS Sports Touring Motorcycle can operate on regular unleaded fuel.

Oil jets cool the pistons by spraying oil on their undersides, which feature grooves to guide the oil. Short piston pins assist in maintaining the engine’s high-revving nature by reducing reciprocating mass. In addition to being lightweight and heat-dissipating, an aluminum die-cast cylinder with T-treatment (KP) plating on the cylinder bores is also available. The large-volume, finned oil pan in the crankcase design improves cooling performance. For simplicity of maintenance, it has a spin-on oil filter.

Digital Fuel Injection (DFI)

It has dual throttle valves (KP) for maximum performance and rideability and is equipped with DFI for simple starting, smooth idling, and improved performance. The ECU regulates airflow via sub-throttles before the main throttle valves in the throttle bore, resulting in a soft, natural throttle response.

Tuned Exhaust System

To improve low and mid-range power, the exhaust header has been tucked close to the engine. Power is increased by using large-diameter header pipes and a central pipe. Complications in the cross-section of the muffler design offer sufficient capacity to satisfy noise standards while still providing an excellent lean angle for cornering. It also helps to concentrate mass because of its short and compact form.

Assist and Slipper Clutch

To save weight, the clutch hub and pressure plate rotational forces are utilized to squeeze the clutch together during acceleration (Assist function). It enables some clutch slippage under high back-torque situations, such as when a low gear is chosen, to assist avoid engine lock-up and stalling, as well as rear-wheel hop.

Six-Speed Transmission

The roller-type shift drum provides smooth actuation and excellent shift sensation. Short final gearing improves the feel and responsiveness of the engine’s low- to mid-range power.

Kawasaki Air Management System

An air cover on the radiator’s rear fan channels hot air downward, away from the rider and the fuel tank, for better comfort, mainly while the engine is idle. To quickly change into neutral, just raise the shift lever in the first gear while the vehicle is still moving.

Long-Stroke Suspension

A considerable amount of time spent traveling the addition of a 41mm front fork improves performance on less-than-ideal paved surfaces. The front fork’s superb feedback provides a more secure ride. The 17mm hollow front axle increases the stiffness and stability of the front end while decreasing the vehicle’s overall weight. The Uni-Trak® rear suspension, with its bottom-link design, is specifically designed for use on rough paved roads and improves ride quality. A long swingarm improves riding stability and handling.

Wheels and Tires
