Looks damn good.

Was it necessary to put Armor-All on the tread portion of the tires?

Looks great. I'll let someone else have it, though. I had one black car and swore I'd never have another black vehicle...just don't have the time or patience to keep a black vehicle looking like the one in that picture.

Love it, just bought the green one which has the black wheels, frame and engine bits. That way if i wish i can remove the green and silver plastics, paint em black, and get a bike that looks very similar to that european model.

When Black is clean it looks better then any color. But when it's dirty, it looks REALLY dirty. Either way, that is an AWESOME looking bike.

It looks great, but why the hell can't we get some subtle color schemes here? Does anyone remember the back and silver colors from the original UK model? They had silver wheels and looks subtle yet made the bike stand out. Damn Kawasaki USA....

Yeah, that’s a statistic sample size of 1, category “anecdotal evidence”, but there it is.

damn Kawasaki Japan instead
the silver wheels and other trim has been largely phased out in Europe

the orange & silver still retian some silver/brightwork, the black has gone totally black (must be to enable black Versys's to hide, and cover their embarrassment, 'cos they are sooooo slow compared to Orange
