Could be the rumoured Kawasaki Versys 250/300.

Kawasaki is set to launch an all-new motorcycle in Spain between December 11-12. It is stated to be an all-new small capacity motorcycle, which is all the company has revealed.

Reports suggest that this all-new model cannot be a new Kawasaki Ninja 300 since it cannot be termed as an ‘all-new’ model, while it could be the rumored (and rendered) all-new Kawasaki Versys 250/300.

The possibility of the first Honda Grom 125 competitor, the Kawasaki Z125/Z125 Pro that was unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, launching in Europe has been ruled out, as a UK Kawasaki spokesman has told Visordown, ‘the Z125 has not been homologated for Europe, so we will not be importing it into Europe at all.’

The Japanese motorcycle maker has never even hinted about a low displacement adventure sports model, but reports have been suggesting that a Versys 250/300 has indeed been in the making, based on the Kawasaki Z250/300’s tube-type diamond frame and powertrain.
