Need something more for highways since most of my riding buddies have 1000+ cc machines. So I've been holding out on a new bike. The ninja 1000 is an option but I am really liking this Versys 1000.

I almost bought a ninja 1000 abs. Insurance was quoted to me higher than the monthly bike payment would have been. Every place I tried said about the same thing. Because of the "Ninja" in the name and it being over 999cc's it was put in the most expensive class of vehicles.

My wife wants to ride with me and I need something bigger than my V650. I need the V1000 to come to the US and I need the insurance on it to be manageable.

Funny thing, Here in Cali the insurance of the Versys was only $11.00 cheaper a year than my FJR..

good thing you checked out the insurance beforehand. When I went from the 650 to the 1000 the difference wasn't nearly as much as I thought it would be but if it is classified as a "sport" bike..

I sold my 2009 Versys in early 2012 in favor of a larger bike. I still miss it to this day in how simple yet versatile it was. Put 41000 miles on the clock in 16 months! When I saw there was a V1000 offering I always wished for it to be available in the states. Now there is a possibility that the V1000 may come to the US and I am very interested in it becoming a reality. More over, the new model is much more visually appealing than the old one!

WIN WIN!!!

Fingers crossed--lets do this Kawasaki!!!!

I just don't like that one headlight on during low beam. Looks uneven. Why can't they do the same as the Concours lights?


Love the orange color on that 1000.

Yeah i've thought about the insurance. That makes the V1000 hopefully more attractive.

Don't you hate it when the news releases say "North America"? You know it's going to be available Canada but Kawasaki will pull our chains in the US. Well I got me a truck. Need a passport. So if comes to "North America", I'm going to get me a V1000.
