Kawasaki has released the Versys 1000 LT for the 2016 model year. Reviews and comparisons are few and far between at the moment. However, based on the Kawa Specs Released, it doesn't appear that there are any significant technical changes. The msrp went up $200 to $12,999.
2015 colors (Orange and Black) are replaced for 2016 with ... (eye searing) Kawasaki Green and Titanium on Black.
Based on my 18,000 miles in the saddle, the Kawasaki Versys 1000 LT has proven to be a great sport touring model and is well deserving of being designated 2015 Motorcycle of the Year by two prominent sources. I'm sure the 2016 model will have equal success.
