Spotted!

Swore I saw my 1st Versys tooling down the street today but upon further glance, saw it was a Multistrada no less-the exact bike I've been debating popping for v. the V. If there's that small difference, maybe I'll pocket the difference and stick on some Duke logo on the V...

Worked for me. I've had to show people the Kawasaki key to PROVE it is not a Ducati. I recently had a police officer pull me over with lights flashing, just cause he wanted to see my Ducati.

At the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Camp, a guy who used to race and own Ducati's wanted to know what year my Ducati was because he hadn't see that model.

The first generation Multi didn't appeal to me. The new one definitely does. From all the reports I've seen; it's a winner.

Now the part I don't understand. Why would you want to de-badge your bike as something it's not? Is owning a Versus an embarrassment to you? I understand badging; I've done mine. I only left the Versys part but I did it because I think it looks better that way not because I'm trying to hide the fact it is a Kawasaki. I often have the uninformed, non rider ask what it is and I tell him it's a Kawasaki Versys that I've made into an adventure tourer.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not putting you down for doing it. It's your bike, do what you want with it; I'm just trying to understand why you did it.


My toys:
'09 Versys in Cool Lime ~ '06 Harley Roadking
'95 Suzuki DR350S ~ '94 Suzuki DR350S
'09 Kawi STX15F jet ski ~ '07 Kawi STX12F Jetski
'09 Yamaha Superjet ~ '13 Ram 4X4 3500 Cummins
'09 BMW 535i ~ '10 Kubota B3300SU
