Kawasaki Versys-X 300

The super king of superbikes released another great motorcycle again in 2017 in the form of the Kawasaki Versys-X 300.

This motorcycle, while not quite fast enough to break the Ninja H2R’s current record for the world’s fastest production motorcycle nonetheless brings some serious force to the world of casual cruising.

New on the Scene

The Kawasaki Versys-X 250 and 300 rolled off the assembly lines and into showrooms across the world at roughly the same time in 2017. The 300 was intended to be a slightly more powerful version of the bike for a slightly more experienced version of Kawasaki riders.

The Versys-X series is what is known as a touring bike, meaning that it is more than just a cruiser: it’s a long-distance cruiser. This type of motorcycling purpose requires a specifically engineered chassis, frame, and well… pretty much everything else.

Designing a Touring Bike

In order to be able to handle long rides both on and off the asphalt, the Versys-X 300 needed to be equipped with a high-quality suspension and a lightweight frame.

Weighing in at 385.9 pounds wet and sporting a high-tensile steel backbone frame supported by 41mm telescopic forks in the front and Bottom-Link Uni-Track, gas-charged shocks with adjustable preload settings in the back, the Versys-X 300 has everything it needs to be a fantastic touring bike.

Too Soon for Changes

Two years in production isn’t nearly enough to justify a second generation. That means the Versys-X 300 models are currently one size fits all.

To maintain the distances and performance outputs necessary for comfortable long-distance rides that still leave owners with that sense of the wind roaring through their hair on a smooth, asphalt highway, a proper engine is needed.

The engineers at Kawasaki outfitted the lightweight frame with a relatively small four-stroke, parallel twin, DOHC, 8-valve engine occupying only 296 cubic centimeters of space.

There is So Much More to Come

If Kawasaki treats the Versys-X series with the same intensity and ingenuity of research and design as the Ninja-series models, then there is so much more that we can see in the future of this motorcycle. As of right now, however, the news is limited to product reviews and first-rides.

Too Soon for Film

Many films take a couple years to produce and TV shows can take just as long to get ready for shooting. While two years might be enough time for some films to enter distribution, it’s not enough for others.

That could explain why the Kawasaki Versys-X 300 has appeared in zero films and TV shows.

Social Groups

With any of the newer and less-developed–in terms of marketing and history–models on the market, you’re going to find some difficulty finding dedicated social media groups. However, the Versys-X 300 crushes that trend.

This group, in particular, has more than 4,000 members and was founded even before the first Versys-X hit the streets.

Kawasaki Versys-X 300 – A Revolution in Touring

Whether you’re looking to tour on a superbike, motorcycle, or scooter, the Kawasaki Versys-X 300 might be exactly what you’re looking for. It has a low-bore engine with a lightweight frame, great suspension, and everything else it needs for you to take on the greatest adventure of your life.
