I like it! I like the headlight, the flat black tank, and the way the body work all ties together. Not much on the $8,000 price tag though.
Thanks for the pics. It's nice to know this model hasn't gone on the shelf yet.
I'd dare say not!
I went months with not a soul asking about the bike.
Then BAM...I don't go 4 or maybe 5 days without a Guy or Gals asking what I ride etc etc etc.
(along with other riders...all respectful, curious, fellow enthusiasts. The Motor Companies included).
It's all good.
I really am beginning to think that bikes like our "V's" are really sparking a whole other kind of interest in the sport.
When you figure in the continuity of effort, honesty, spirit and engineering consistency Kawasaki invested in the 'kle-650' project, It really is an incredible motorcycle.
It's not what you can do when cost is not an issue.
It's what you bring to the sport when your very best work has a budget.
Daring, Against the grain, thoughtful, contemporary, eclectic
, and bold.
(butt ugly to some
I'm leaving out practical because part of any well engineered...anything!...is a certain level of practicality. Form should always follow function. (and vibrating mirrors be dammed!!!...and clean lines can be sexy).
The bike has...good bones.
There is a very good reason the Kawasaki Versys was 'Bike of the year'.
We all get it.
Wither or not you sell after a year or keep her forever cuz...well, to some she is indeed a keeper.
We all get it.
She's a different and capable yet very affordable machine.
Kawasaki's true 'cult' bike for the new millennium. (perhaps a stretch but hey...it got me into the sport
(Kawasaki...sometimes it's the little guy that has the biggest balls...).
More will follow but, we are the first.
I'll shut up now.
