Kawasaki Versys 1000: North America Debut

2012 Kawasaki Versys 1000

Yes, you read that correctly. A Versys 1000, which is currently only available in Europe, will debut in North America.

But not in the states; Kawasaki plans to debut its new Versys 1000 this weekend at the 36th Annual North American International Motorcycle Supershow in Toronto, Canada.

Will the Versys 1000 hit American shores? It hasn’t been confirmed, but many Kawasaki fans will likely hope to see the larger Versys in the states.

Speaking of the new machine, Canadian Kawasaki Motors says "Created as the long-awaited big brother of Kawasaki’s mid-size any-road street surfer, the new Versys 1000 is designed to enable the greatest riding enjoyment in the widest variety of street riding situations.

"Whether riding solo or two-up, around the corner or around the globe, its unique combination of a highly responsive In-Line Four engine tuned for flexibility, and a nimble chassis fitted with dynamic suspension will have riders grinning in their helmets. With the Versys 1000, Kawasaki extends its any-street promise to the litre-bike class."

This new Versys will be on display at the Kawasaki Corporate display in Hall 3 of the Toronto International Center Jan. 6-8.

Claude Gagne (National Sales and Marketing Manager) says: "Canadian Kawasaki is pleased to be returning to the North American International Motorcycle Supershow. This show has always played a significant role within the Ontario market place and Canadian Kawasaki is excited to present our strong mix of 2012 models to the enthusiasts that frequent this show each year."
