The engine on this new version is a gem. The new Kawasaki features redline at 10,000 rpm, which is certainly a good thing for all riders. Power is strong with two power modes. This is definitely a fast and impressive motorcycle with a smooth engine. The engine also includes rubber mounted pegs, bars and a counter balancer.

However, this model doesn’t have that kind of vibration issue with the updated smooth engine.
Windshield and the New Brake System
This new model includes an updated windshield, which is well adjusted to the tallest position to help the rider the most. The windshield helps riders to feel a bit warmer while riding. It indeed improved the overall look of this modern motorcycle from Kawasaki. The brakes in the new 2015 Kawasaki include dual front discs. Both the discs are of 310mm and include 4-piston calipers. The clutch with a light pull helps the riders to keep the control over the wheels during extreme corners.
New saddlebags are another feature of the Versys 1000 LT. The motorcycle comes with Kawasaki Quick-Release saddlebags. The saddlebags with 28 liters of space help to boost the vehicle’s touring chops. These new and updated saddlebags go perfectly with the new Kawasaki’s unique model and style. To remove, open and lock the bags, there is a one-key system included with the bike. With the optional KQR 47-liter top case, the Versys’ storage can be further increased.
New power modes
Two power modes in this Versys surely make it a powerful motorcycle. With the 1043cc option in this new motorcycle, riders can now make use of the new power modes, gear positions and throttle position to get to the full power mode. Combing the power modes with the KTRC three mode traction control will be easier in the new Versys. Also, riders can make the full use of the setting available for all situations. New power modes include Mode One and Mode Two. The Mode One is ideal for riders who look forward for some wheel lift and sporty acceleration while riding.
