How did you go yourself with locating one?
Sorry I can't help you locte one, but as an Aussie born in Melbourne I can tell you they are a GREAT bike

I moved to Bright at a young age and would love to take one up to Hotham / Falls Creek / Dargo High Plains on the weekend after using it as an every day commuter.

BC is beautiful, but I miss the NE of Vic.



Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

I'm in Melbourne so on road costs a bit cheaper than other states but a Versys will still cost me $12,892 on road which sucks when you can see that our A$ almost equals a US$ at the moment (US$1=A98cents).

Be gentle with the locals mate
I visited your fair city in 2002 and purchased a Tiger Angel suit. Still wearing it today!

Do you still have your Versys Boogs? I'm up in Marmion, ride the Versys into Subiaco every day and just getting the FI issues sorted on it with help from the forum. I have only ever seen one other Versys in Perth. I hope I can sell the thing when the time comes. I don't think I'll buy another Kawasaki, even though I have 2.

Keep her lit!

I'd be surprised if you can't get a better price than that. If they are only selling around 85 bikes a year Australia wide, any dealer with two on the floor should be about ready to do a deal.

Hey, mate!


About the price... I got my Versys used, but just before that local dealers offered 2012 model (ABS LAMS) for 11,500 on road. Also about a month ago Kawi offered $1000 price pull-back for V, and it's still on. So, theoretically, you should be looking for about $10,500 deal.

G'day wozza,
in September Kawasaki dropped a grand on the Versys, that's when I got mine. In January they had a package which consisted of the panniers, larger screen and tank gel protector. I know this doesn't help you now what I'm saying is they sometimes discount or value add so if your not in a hurry you might get a good deal early next year. On the other hand the current (2013) model is a god awful brown mess, maybe you can get a deal on a 2012?
Good luck
