"Adjustable in two different positions (original position and 25 mm lower)"

Looks like one-stop shopping for those who want lower pegs and a more aggressive peg for off-the-beaten-path adventures. Hopefully Twisted Throttle will start carrying it.

If anyone is interested, I checked with Twisted Throttle, and this is what they said:

"I have good news we will be carrying those footpegs just at the moment
we do not have them in stock they are still too new. If you want to
check back in a month or so we may have the price and a better time
frame for availability. Unfortunately they just are not in our system
yet or even in the country. Hope that helps.

Have a great day!

Amanda"

Apparently, they will be getting them in so lets not create any undo excitement about them as it will have an effect on Twisted Throttles price (read: go up).

Hah! Your undue excitement has been noticed!

Actually, we've placed orders for the items. They haven't yet gone to production at the factory. As soon as they're ready to ship, they'll be on their way to us. SW-MOTECH stuck them on the manufacturer website just a little too early. We'll be adding them to our website once they're in stock in our warehouse. It should be here before all the ice has melted!

LOL, well as soon as it is in I will be ordering the fender extender and the pegs.

I can't wait for this freezing weather and snow to go away.

Moon Dust Gray Versys, with lots of farkles.

Vlast

P.S. I bought my Versys to support my photography hobby.

But when the snow and ice are stuck to the bottom of my boots is when I need those pegs.

No, then you need studs in your tires and more sense in your head.

Already have one, but I'd support the effort.

I sent a PM off to the user "TwistedThrottle" inquiring about a group buy, lets hope we get a delighted response. Any other takers?
