Versys 400 version coming?

Hmmmm...makes me wonder. Wouldn't take much to convert it. Might sell if they make it a bit shorter. Kind of a starter Versys.

Hmmmm interesting...looks like the finally retired the 500.

You now have the option to get a 250, 400 or 650. Makes sence to me.

Kinda like they do with the zx line, 600, 1000 and 1400 CC's.

I doubt they will do that for the V. If they do any thing they might bring the CC's up not down.

I am excited to see some expert reveiws on this from MCN and CW.

Cool bike.
By the looks of it....it has all that jazz, (The lines ya love of the Ninja series), but given the width/height of the handlebars...sits more like a standard. (Long distance comfort and control).
Hmmm....might be a good bike for my sweetie.
yet a different take on the continuing evolution of the 'sport/touring' style of bike.
very cool indeed.
You go Kawasaki!

(and to think...'the motorcycle company dropped Buell cuz they didn't see a long term future for sport/sport touring bikes, in the USA.
What fools these mortals be).

three 2 cylinders from kawa for 2011.250,400 and 650....clever strategy ,in the fight for low fuel consumption a parallel 400 would make it just perfect.kawa has good strategy and i believe its going to be protagonist of next decade ,they are very aggressive in every category and the products are toward the real issues of riding community.of course there will always be the "farkle factories" like ducati to serve other needs.

I guess this is the reason they still haven't redesigned the 500. The asking price is stupid high. I can see the appeal of a mini versys but I doubt they will make one.

This is the Canada website, so maybe it is labeled something different in Canada. I think the prices must be Canadian prices. The ER-6N is $8,300.
