There has been some speculation lately on whether or not the Versys is selling and it prompted me to think of whether or not I'd ever seen a used Versys for sale in a dealership. Well I've never seen one until today and that was in Colorado Springs, Co. I'm on vacation up here and was looking for a clutch lever when I came upon this one. It actually belonged to the owner of the dealership and was his private bike so it wasn't a trade in. The Colorado dealerships say the demand for the Versys is good in this area and never see a trade in.
You see most of the Versys for sale on either Craigs list or Ebay but I've never seen one in a dealership until today. Anyone else seen any in a dealership?
Seen one at a dealer in Houston, 2009 Blue with 800 miles for $4,500 plus taxes. Said previous owner really wanted a Concours but could't afford one. Two months later inherited some money and traded it for the Conours he originally wanted!
I assume the colorado springs dealership mentioned was Apex Motorsports? I live about 5 miles from that location and frequent it often. I did see a fully luggaged farkled 08 in there a few weeks ago but it did not last long. They also had a couple of new blue ones but they did not last long either. I see more Versy in this area than any other part of the country I have been in in the past year...from Oregon to Florida and many spots in between....
Yes, when I bought mine in May 09, there was a used 08 in the local dealership, but they wanted as much for it as I paid for my new 08 elsewhere. I wonder if the reason you don't see more used ones is that dealers probably don't want to take away from new sales, where they make better money? I think it was amusing that my local Harley dealer has several used metric cruisers for sale if you ask, but they are hidden away in a separate building.

i bought my green 09 used from a dealer. they had the bike since new, put a 2 bros carbon can on it and used it as a demo. the shop owner put a few k miles on it... then sold it to me with a full factory warranty.
i traded my 04 liter multistrada (that needed $1.5K of maintenance) and a little cash for it.
5K miles later and I'm as stoaked on this bike as the first day i rode it.
I bought a used 2009 Blue with 2,000 miles at a dealership for $4,200 plus tax/tag/etc. I register and title all my cars in my resident state (I'm military) so I paid $4,200, drove the bike away, and paid all the TN taxes/registration myself.
Bike was completely cherry, with the Kawi top case. Drove it 354 miles back to Omaha the day I got it!
