Like stepping into HEAVEN for a future Versys owner!

Hey all... a while back I posted during another thread that I would tease you with some of the colors you may be hoping to have back in the US (those other Americans out there besides me) next year! I live in Medellin, Colombia and am working on getting my Versys, and have actually decided to go ahead and try to finance one here instead of waiting to get one over Christmas and have to ship it down here from North Carolina!

So anyway, for all you stuck with only the red option, check out this beautiful sight I saw when walking into the local Kawasaki shop! I am REALLLY preferential to the burnt orange myself. The blue washes out in the picture, and is much more dark in person. The black was sold yesterday, so don't have a pic of that. Enjoy!

I like the orange, but I LOVE the green and the silver.

If we got the green here, there is no doubt in my mind that would be the color I'd be riding right now.

Oh well, I'd rather have red than a Gummed up California emissions bike.

I'd be all over the Green, especially with the nice metallic tint and black plastic frame trim pieces.

Haha...you guys and the GREEN!

I guess I just don't like the Kawy green for the wrong reason - for years Kawy didn't make the best of sportbikes, and the "losers", "newbies" or "squids" always bought a green Ninja, so we often made fun of that. Now I associate that ugly green with those feelings. I guess it's like saying you don't like peas simply because you didn't like the look of them as a kid!

Anyway, I'm sticking with the burt-orange if I can have it my way...

Hmm. Tough decision. You'd better get one of each.

I like the red, because I like being asked if the V is a Ducati. It's a great way to meet new people. Since it's not an all-black angry looking cruiser or color-splashed super-sport people feel comfortable just walking up and asking what it is.

I like that.

I did ok with this deal, red is my favorite color so if I had other choices I would have still went to red.

I like that.
Take off the decals, paint the subframe red and people will think it's a Duc for sure.

Lol!
I must admit, I was not too fond of the red when I first got it, but it has grown on me, a lot!!! Given a choice, I would likely get black or silver, but am happy with my red. On the confusion note, I took the Kawi stickers off my V., and left the "Versys" stickers. The other day, some friends and I had a good laugh at work as we watched a group of people gather round my V., looking all confused, circling the bike over and over. One fellow was even crawling around on his hands and knees for a couple of minutes!!! I can only assume he was trying to decipher who the hell makes this funky looking critter!!! I opted to let him remain confused.
Fukken cheers,
Erik!!!

If I was allowed to mix and match, I'd probably opt for the blue with black frame and forks. That being said though, I'm amazed at how much attention I get with the red one. I've only had my V for 5 days and I can't believe how many questions and compliments I've received. If I was simply hoping to be seen (and not run over), I think I'd get the red again (or maybe a yellow one, but still with the blacked out frame/forks).
