Delivery of 2015 650 LT

Has anyone actually taken delivery of a 2015 650 LT in North America?

Just curious. I have a feeling our bikes are floating off the coast of California on a cargo ship.

There's a couple for sale in my local dealership. The green one is in the show room. I know they seem to be more popular than the old style, but it just doesn't do it for me. It now looks like every other Japanese bike out there. That's just a personal opinion though. Think I'll keep my 2012 for a while. I am happy that the Versys line will be around for a while.

Lovin every minute of it!

White one in one of dealerships within 90 miles of me. You might be overlooking it because it looks just like a Kawasaki sport bike.

You have seen LTs on the floor? I have only seen the ABS models on the floor.

Yes, I currently have a white one sitting in my garage as we speak. Some dealers closer to me said they are held up in California and they do not know when they will get them in, some have the 1000, but not the 650s

Really? See I would of never considered a versys before this model came out, I always thought they were ugly, I saw it and thought it was a darn good looking bike and just had to have it. The sales people did not know much about these or how many they would probably sell. If anything the front looks like a tiger 1050 only smaller obviously. I guess everyone has their own opinion.

Heck yeah! And I'm jealous. Hopefully the weather improves soon for you.

The 2nd gen versys is more unique looking. Some of us like unique. Some of us like to look like the others. I think all the generations are good looking bikes, but I like the 2nd gen the best.

I had a first gen and I really liked the looks
Now I have a 2nd gen and I like
it better. The 3rd gen looks like a
vstrom. Sure the bags fit closer but they
are smaller. And the windscreen can be
raised without tools, just bring something
to clean the bugs out. The driving lights
are cool though.

Even without the cyclops headlight, the Versys are both still a pretty unique looking bikes. Don't look like any other bikes I can think of.

My dealer had a black LT 650 in stock and I snapped it up right away, they have it in storage for me and I should probably get it in a month... come on warm weather!

Are you in Canada? We don't get that color in the U.S.

Sure wish we did, that would of been my first color choice, we only have black in the 1000. Seems like they would of made the same colors regardless of the size.

Actually, the 1000 comes in black or orange/black in the US.
