I'm brand new to motorcycling and have been considering the V-Strom and the Versys. A local Kawasaki dealer is closing out their '09 Versys stock (3 left and I put a hold on one) and I'm seriously considering picking one up. It's brand new, with warranty.
I'm in Sacramento, California and the deal is $6299 out the door (including tax, title, license, freight, setup). From the research I've done, this is a pretty good deal considering the used V-Strom's I'm finding in my area are going for around $5k with 10k miles on them.
So, should I go for this deal? Oh, and if so, green or blue
Also, the dealer that has it has the basic Kawasaki accessories for it. I'm considering their top case trunk and the "tall" windscreen as additions. Anyone have any experience with these? I've heard good things about Givi stuff, but I can't afford to pay for them upfront now, but can roll the others into my financing if I want to.
Any advice for the newbie?
