New models strengthen 2021 Kawasaki range

Kawasaki is powering into 2021 with its big bikes leading the way.

It is strengthening its model range with new versions of the Versys 1000 adventure bike, race-bred ZX-10R superbike and a new flagship for the naked Z line.

The new Versys 1000 S comes with many features from the popular SE model but not the Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension (KECS).

The £12,999 standard Versys S is joined by £13,799 Tourer and £14,699 Grand Tourer editions.

The Tourer model gains 56-litre panniers and a tank pad, the Grand Tourer also adds a 47-litre top case, GPS bracket, fog lights and frame sliders.

And the Versys 1000 SE takes comfort to the next level with the addition of Showa Skyhook suspension technology.

Kawasaki’s flagship model of the Z line of naked motorcycles just got better as the 2021 Z H2 SE adds a smoother ride and more stopping power to the already innovative supercharged Z H2 package.

It gets electronic semi-active suspension which also features Showa’s Skyhook technology, delivering a smoother ride. Brembo Stylema front brake calipers and Brembo radial master cylinder add even greater stopping power and control.

After a sixth consecutive WorldSBK title, the Ninja ZX-10R road bike and ultimate performance ZX-10RR track model feature a number of highlights for 2021.

The new Ninja aero-package debuts Integrated Winglet Technology to create 17% more downforce. The foot pegs have been moved, the screen is 40mm higher screen and the handlebars have been adjusted.

There are new colours for the Ninja 650, Versys 650, Z650 and cruiser-styled Vulcan S, Z1-inspired Z900RS, Ninja 1000SX and Z125 and Ninja 125.

The Covid-19 pandemic means some models have not yet been converted for Euro 5 emissions so are being dropped from the range although some will return later. These models include J125 and J300 scooters, Ninja 400 and Z400, ZX-6R, Z1000 and Ninja H2 and Ninja H2 SX family.
