2013 Versys 650 $4500 Asheville, NC (all the bells and whistles)

Ok maybe not all but damn near close. I have loved this bike but as I am now living on the west coast and it is living on the east she just doesn't get ridden enough. I have a friend keeping her that riders her every week or two. Approximately 22,000 miles to my recollection. with a ton of farkels.

THE GOOD:

This is a hard one to let go of. She was my first bike. I paid $6000 for her a few years ago and have since invested a lot in upgrades and parts. You will be hard pressed to find things to upgrade on this bike as it has mostly been done.

Here is what I can remember as the bike is not in front of me:
Upgraded seat (original comes with bike)
Givi Crash bars $190
Zero gravity touring windshield $98
Barkbuster handgaurds $138
Oxford USB $30
Touratech above dash GPS mount with powered RAM mount for Garmin Montana $155
Puig Fender Extender (not installed/new) $30
Stainless Steel brake lines
Fuzeblock Fusebox
Oxford heated grips
MAtching Givi saddlebags and top box (locking) (will fit full face helmet) and associated racks
Delkevic Exhaust (Sounds Awesome!!!)
K&N Air filters
SW Mototech skid plate
Radiator Guard
Motorworks footpeg lowering kit
Motorworks handle bar risers


I am sure that there are some things that I am forgetting. This is a great adventure bike for someone under 180 lbs. I have taken her up some pretty technical jeep roads. This is a great bike for someone doing mostly forest service roads and pavement but she will do more. Her 17 inch front wheel makes her very flickable and a blast for the Tail of the Dragon. She is outfitted for multi-day camping trips and cross county touring. I actually prefer her powertrain and handling over my BMW f800gs!

This bike is also a great first bike. It was my first. There is plenty of power to grow into and it handles great. Personally I don't feel the need for any more power. She runs clean and strong.

THE BAD:
She had been dropped off roading a few times. There are some minor scratches to the plastic boxes a small crack in the front fender, a light scratching on the radiator faring. Also a small dent near the top front of the gas tank cause during an MR Motorcycle service. It is hardly noticeable. They have offered to fix it for free since they did the damage. None of these affect the performance of this bike. She is just no longer a trailer queen.

I have the title in hand and will be back in Asheville in a week.

FYI Email Notification on PM sent

Even though you have a email link, if someone were to post a PM, you wouldn't be aware of this until you logged in. I would suggest you update your user CP;

Updated notification, my latest method works on 96% of the members. Makes selling so much more competitive, nothing like getting a bargain before anyone else knows they missed out
