Kawasaki has just confirmed it’s updating its compact Versys X-300 for 2019 – unveiling a couple of new model variants and colour schemes for its dual-purpose A2-licence friendly mini-adventure machine.



First introduced a couple of years ago, amongst a swathe of smaller capacity adventure-oriented machines; Kawasaki’s widely praised Versys-X 300 is being updated for 2019. Mechanically, not much is actually changing – instead, it’s receives a couple of new ‘SE’ paint schemes. 

Colour-wise, the new small capacity Versys X-300 is available in Candy Lime Green/Metallic Flat Spark or Black Metallic Moondust Grey/Metallic Flat Spark Black – while its Adventure and Urban variants offer all the equipment necessary, either for your daily commute or next big trip.   


Here’s the bikes technical specifications;
