2011 Versys colors?

Anyone have any idea on what colors and improvments we should expect on the 2011 Versys?

If pressed, I'd say we would get the yellow/orange color that was optional in the UK this year. JMO

Yeah, that’s a statistic sample size of 1, category “anecdotal evidence”, but there it is.

Anyone...anyone...? Does anyone know when they will announce the colors for 2011?

I haven't heard anything from Kawasaki about color selection yet.

I have heard Kawasaki will have a drum roll with smoke & mirrors scheduled for the Milan Show at which time they will reveal the 2011 colors for the Versys. I can not wait!

Thats not a good thing. I think the Versys is ugly but not nearly as ugly as the B-King. The B-king is the ugliest non-Harley in years.

Ah well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I would have said the Morphus was the Pug-ugliest thing on two wheels I have ever seen, but then I could be wrong.

Lets just hope it still exists. If I don't count my V, or the 3 I have seen in various dealers I have only ever seen 1 V out on the streets. Makes you wonder how popular the bike is for Kawi.

I think the Versys is gorgeous. Seriously.

That being said, when are the 2011's coming out? Forget the color, when can I buy one?!

looking at the UK website it looks as if there will be a dark red next year
http://www.kawasaki.co.uk/Versys

...at least if you look at the acessories section that is
it may be Yellow and Dark Red, but a query over the Black as this isn't in the accssory pictures

Now if they would only bring back the aluminum wheels. Black is UGLY, and hard to keep clean looking. IMHO that is

That color is awesome, sign me up. The current black isn't doing much for me.



If only the shock spring were also that color. Loved the original red as well.
