Styling changes include sharper lines, aggressive twin LED headlamps, four-way adjustable windscreen through a manual mechanism that increases the windshield height in increments of an inch. A TFT screen acts as the instrumentation and gets smartphone connectivity with access to Kawasaki’s Rideology App which allows monitoring of numerous machine functions and overviews of routes taken plus other functions. Kawasaki has also added a USB outlet. 28-litre, quick-release panniers are colour coordinated along with the convenience of Edition models which come pre-fitted with a range of genuine accessories. Urban, Tourer, Tourer Plus and Grand Tourer variants are all available as catalogue machines while owners are also free to specify from a huge range of accessories.
