Kawasaki Motors has launched the updated 2023 Versys 1000 in the Indian market. The latest version of the bike is priced at Rs 12.19 lakh (ex-showroom). This makes it slightly more expensive than the outgoing model. The new motorcycle has not received any significant updates but only a DC socket as standard, which was earlier sold as an accessory. In terms of design, the litre-class adventure tourer looks the same as the 2022 model. The updated bike comes in a single variant and is offered in only dual-tone Metallic Matte Graphenesteel Grey with Metallic Spark Black. At a price of Rs 12.19 lakh (ex-showroom), the 2023 Kawasaki Versys 1000 rivals the Triumph Tiger 850 Sport and the BMW F900XR.
