Plus about $350 for fitting. That's now a grand total of AUD$1,700.00 or $1,000 more than an LT costs over base model in USA and it includes handguards. Given exchange rate, I would expect an LT (if it was available) to cost about AUD$900 over base price. We are being ripped off to the tune of $800.
Kawasaki Aus was kind enough to ask me to do an online satisfaction survey after purchasing the 15 650V. They should now know what I think!
My solution: Andy Strapz panniers, Oxford heated grips, Barkbusters Blizzard handguards, power outlet I had laying about, home-made rear rack, Andy Strapz A-Bagz. Bike is now set up the way I want it and not a genuine accessory in sight. If I had been able to purchase an LT as I wanted, I probably would have gone with other genuine accessories.
