Ayee, What Men! Kawasaki Changes Decision To Bring Versys 1000 In White Instead of Orange


Kawasaki Changes Decision To Bring Versys 1000 In White Instead of Orange was a waste of our perfectly good headline and a chance to see Kawasaki in Orange on Indian streets

Kawasaki Motors would like to inform all the upcoming Versys 1000 customers that the Versys 1000 MY2020 will be made available in pearl stardust white colour instead of candy steel furnace orange. On 16th November 2018, the Versys 1000 MY2020 was launched in candy steel furnace orange colour with pre-booking facility.

Speaking on the change in availability colour, Mr. Yutaka Yamashita, Managing Director of India Kawasaki Motors Pvt. Ltd., said, “After launching the new Versys 1000, we received demands from customers for pearl stardust white colour. As for India Kawasaki, fulfilling customers’ demands is paramount. Therefore, we made a decision of changing the colour from orange to white. In future, we will decide on bringing the Versys 1000 in orange.”
