The Versys-X 300 is the new first rung on the ladder of the Versys Range. With a 300cc parallel twin engine (derived from the Ninja and Z300’s) tuned for low and mid-range power, the styling and ride is very much “trail” inspired. The new model comes equipped with a soft pull Assist and Slipper clutch, and the fine atomising injectors and dual throttle valves contribute to excellent fuel efficiency and consumption.
Rugged looks with 19” front and 17” rear spoked wheels matched to long travel suspension give the rider the ability to tackle non paved roads. With a good list of accessories including hard adventure style panniers, you really can make the bike your own.
The comfortable riding position features a large windshield to protect the rider from the elements. The Versys-X 300 also offers wide handlebars to maximise maneuverability for riding on any surface.The meter package offers a digital gear indicator, dual trip meters, remaining fuel range plus current and average consumption and an eco-riding indicator allowing over 400kms between tank re-fills.
The all new steel backbone frame uses the engine as a stressed member, contributing to high rigidity and light weight. Suspension duties are taken care of thanks long travel 41mm telescopic front forks and a bottom link Uni-Trak gas charged shock at the rear housed in a reinforced framework anticipating the unpaved roads capabilities of the Versys-X 300.
With regards to styling, the new Versys-X 300 does not disappoint! The fashionable adventure-style bodywork contributes to its "big bike looks", and with the new low seat height the latest Versys model is undeniably accessible.
With a distinct personality, a reassuring ride in challenging unpaved road conditions plus impressive in-town city street maneuverability, the new Versys-X 300 is a worthy addition to the established and popular Versys family.
