Sounds like we've reached consensus what model year we can expect the new Versys X-400.
IN 2020 ... there will not be a Versys X 400
Thread should be locked till September 2020
Or you could just stay away until then.
Guess Mother Kawi wasn't monitoring this thread; maybe next year.... tp
Oh what a surprise no V400X...the real ? is what will the new KLR look like?
Two year anniversary coming up on this thread. Anybody planning any special celebration? Perhaps the original prediction should have been years and not months? Are there still those holding off on an X-300 in anticipation for an X-400?
I'm not holding off on VX3 because of the engine displacement but because of the suspension.
I deserted. Sold my X-300 last year and bought an e-bike.
I just ride my X-300, about 5,300 mi in 9 months, 2,000 mi. or so this summer. Added the T-rex skid-plate.
No worries. TaoTao is here!!!
Stickers and bungee cords. I like how this youngster thinks... tp
Fricken brilliant video!
Moar Milk crate!

It looks to me as though they have changed the seat for 2020. It is lower and more narrow than 2019.
Tall guys get no love!
Looks like the difference between the factory low and high seats to me.
I hear you. Short riders tend to think that tall riders have it made, but not always true.
The cheapest automobiles, and even garden tractors have adjustable seats. I do not understand why motorcycles do not have seat height adjustments of 4-5 inches. Yes there are a few that allow a whopping 0.5-1 inch adjustment, what a joke. Yes, you can install aftermarket seats, and/or lower suspensions, but why not simply implement an adjustable seat mechanism? With all of the other whiz bang un-asked for features of new motorcycles, why can we not have something as simple as an adjustable seat?
And then there are those of us at the other (shorter) end of the spectrum. I understand that the bike we get in Canada has the lower seat but I still had to lower the bike another inch to get my feet on the ground. Short sucks, too.
I think it's important to cater for the shorter people, e.g. women.
I don't think so. There are two factory seats for Versys-X 250/300: A tall seat (seat height = 845 mm) and the low seat (seat height = 815 mm). However, the seat the bike comes with as "standard" from the factory depends on the market. For example, Versys-X 250/300 in Asia and North America has the low seat as standard with the tall seat as an extra cost option whereas in Europe the bike comes with the tall seat as standard with the low seat as an extra cost option (I don't know which seat is "standard" in other markets). The only thing the pictures show is the two seats that have been available since day one. And if we are honest about it, anyone who has sat on the "low" seat probably knows that it does not have a lot of thickness or width and Kawasaki would be hard-pressed to make it much lower or narrower, if at all.
