If You Ride This: 2107 Kawasaki Versys –X 300 (ABS version)
If you like Kawasaki’s Versys line but feel that the 1000 and 650 models were just too much bike or too expensive, the brand new X 300 should fit right into your lane. Nearly 100 pounds lighter than its 650cc big brother, the new X 300 is has a torquey 296cc twin-cylinder engine borrowed from the Ninja line. Looks-wise the new Versys appears to have been influenced by Kawi’s popular KLR 650. The rear suspension on the X 300 is radically different with a hidden Uni-Trak rear shock as opposed to the Verys 650’s offset laydown shock. Light weight and spunky, the X 300 is ready for long distance highway touring, agile city maneuvering, and winding backroad excursions.
