I've never seen an ad in a magazine, have they ever marketed this motorcycle? I found it on the web by googling "best sport touring motorcycle", and that brought up the M.O.T.Y. video and pics. I was sold before ever seeing one on the showroom. When dealers say there is little interest, it's partly because buyers usually know more about the Versys than they do. When I got my "buyers orientation", the salesperson told me the bike was a five speed. Guess he was confused with the KLR. Most people buy a motorcycle for the wrong reasons. How it looks, how it sounds, how much horsepower, etc. I was shopping for a cruiser originally, but after reading so many tests and seeing how much they were alike, I noticed the editors were doing the same thing. The cruiser gets rated by what it looks like, most of the time, or how uncomfortable it is, or how easy it is to drag a peg or muffler. After I decided to buy a motorcycle that would be fun to ride and comfortable enough to ride all day, I realized I am a sport touring rider, not a cruiser.
