Glad I got my '11.

Bummed that they didn't bring the W800 to the states.

The Ninja 400 which was based on the 650, is replaced by the new lighter and redesigned 2013 Ninja 300.

In Canada, 2013 Versys 650 is shown in Metallic Magnessium Grey (brown) only, for now.

Ever since I saw the photo of the white police bike someone posted I have been wanting one in white!

I would like the white OK if the rear shock were black. The red stands out and not in a good way. Still loving the bumble bee yellow.

candy thunder blue, as has been shown, blue is the fastest color and this reinforces it

Like the white the blue is just meh.

I actually thought they might not do a US release of the Versys for 2013. I doubt we will ever see the 1000 in the states. Of course I could be wrong. If they did release the 1000 I'm betting 2015.

Maroon is not the fastest color. I don't mind that though...

EDIT: Excuse me... Imperial Red.

Well, Passion Red arrived here first, which would make it fastest.

Well not with that Attitude! Haha I'm kidding .I think/hope it'll come to the US, Didn't they just do EPA testing? That can't be cheap. 2015 is just fine with me, gives me time to save up haha. Mood Dust Gray on the 1000 looks excellent.

I have seen references to a 10/2 Versys 1000 announcement, but not from an official source. They have gotten EPA approval for the Versys 1000 in the states, so that is a positive sign.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

I prefer how they used to color it with the tank and back plastics in color and the front was black. At least they did that for 2012, on the yellow. That was sharp.

(Maybe I'm biased because that's what mine is)

Don't get me started on Kawasaki colors lol They seem to forget a majority will enjoy, black, charcoal, grey but only minorities will enjoy yellow, red, blue, green or brown (2013 in canada):
http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motor...-Versys650.htm

I don't mind that they make some with fun colors, but they should at least always offer the option for black or charcoal. I have a 2011 red cause I had a great deal on it, but seriously considering sending it to the paintshop!

If my Versys was my main motorcycle, this is what I'd turn it into:

I was always partial to white. I don't like how the white (or even the 2012 yellow) is combined with the black but I like the blue.

And the white they have usually has metal flake in it...not my cup of tea.
But that will never beat the ER-6N in canary yellow:

Talk about a way to make a bike look like a kid toy :P
