I'm looking forward to getting some good reviews on the x-versys. I might add one of these to the fleet for trips to the mountains etc.

You probably correct. Just checked with my dealer today and was told the bike should be here in two weeks!

I am seeing x-300s in several Southern California showroom floors now. Has anybody taken delivery of theirs and what was your out-the-door price?

I'm impressed at how light this bike seems.

I got stuck at "shorts and gravel" and couldn't get past that.

I'm thinking the X300 would be a good 2nd bike because it is 90lbs lighter than my V650-LT. I'm wanting a bike lightweight enough to mount on a hitch carrier on my SUV. Something small & lightweight yet still not a toy (aka. Grom or Z125). Something like this pic with a Versys X300 on it would be a great fun addition to my road trips! (note: image not mine - just a stock pic from google)

Went to Norms for breakfast in Lakewood. On the way back stopped by Mid-Cities Honda/Kawasaki. Saw the twin brother to my bike for $10,999.00 and a 2017 650 next to it. Ask the sales guy when they would get in a V-300 he said they got it in yesterday. It was in the shop getting assembled...

Welcome. I was at my local dealer today picking up a part for my 650 and they have a new X300 in stock. I must say, it's pretty freakin nice.
