Cross state purchasing

Truthfully, I think we've already all though of this before the CA Versys became available, but things I believe are a little different now....


Do we know if it's legal to purchase a bike in say... AZ and then bring it here for registration? I've gone over the things like the required milage and what not. But has that changed now that the versys is also a CA bike?

If it's 50-state legal bike, which I don't think the V is. I think there's a CA model (with the requisite emissions canister) and a 49-state model. Comparing the two photos below you see the canister on the CA bike (circled in red) which is absent on the other (rest of the country) bike.








So, no, you can't do it unless it's got 7500 miles on it.
