They already have the 2013 line up on Kawasaki's site. What information do you have that the V 1000 will be coming this year?
Lots of rumors and speculation. Only hard information is the EPA report listing it as certified for 49 states. There is a website stating that the spec for the US version of the Versys 1000 will be available on Oct 2nd. There was also a rumor of sigthings of some sales or dealer riding one in California.
On the ADV Rider site, someone linked to Motorcycle News, which has shows two major press releases from Kawasaki, one on the 1st and one the 2nd, it specifically shows the Versys 1000 as details provided on the 2nd, with pricing, spec's, etc. to be released for the US and most other markets at that time.
Looks like today will not be the day we hoped for. The Total Motorcycle web site no longer says October 2nd will be the US information release date. It now says," As soon as relesed". I may have to start thinking about a V-Strom 1000. Sigh....
