– Kawasaki unveils 2022 Versys-X 250 for Japan
– Comes in two new color options now
– Reaching dealerships in February 2022
Kawasaki’s smallest adventure motorcycle, the Versys-X 250, has been updated for the 2022 model year in Japan. The motorcycle will be available in two new color options – Candy Lime Green with Metallic Flat Spark Black and Metallic Ocean Blue with Pearl Robotic White. It is expected to start reaching dealerships from February 2022 in Japan.
With the 2022 Versys-X 250, Kawasaki will provide a few adventure-oriented components as standard that were not available in the previous edition. These goodies include 17-litre metal panniers on both sides, engine guard, center stand and power outlet. The bike remains unchanged on all other fronts.
The Versys-X 250 is powered by a 249cc, 180-degree, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that would do the trick in the previous generation Ninja 250. This unit produces around 33bhp of power at 11,500rpm and is mated to a six-speed gearbox. The bike rolls on a 19- to 17-inch wire wheel combination that is shod with dual-purpose rubbers and is suspended by 130mm telescopic forks up front and a linkage monoshock at the rear. Braking is provided by a single disc at both ends.
In case you are curious, Kawasaki will not launch the Versys-X 250 in India. The Japanese bike maker used to sell the Versys X-300 on our shores, but it was discontinued a long time ago.
