2012 announcement from Kawasaki

http://www.kawasaki.com/Products/pro...?scid=6&id=572

Looks like nothing new but the color and the MSRP, but I haven't read the whole thing yet.

I'm glad I bought the 2011. Also glad they didn't change the red on the 2011 to candy lime green because then I would not have been glad I got the 2011.

I really like my Versys, but I have to wonder if I would have jumped ship on an 800cc Versys had they made that announcement. Maybe next year?

I thought about the 800cc thing if it ever happens, I guess we always want more but in truth, I never really felt like the 650 was lacking in power. I sometimes ride with a guy who has a VTX1800 and I can beat him from 0 to 60 and hang neck and neck with him to 100+mph granted the VTX is a cruiser. I ride with lots of cruiser guys and not many cruisers can keep up with me. The only time the V seems to come up short on power is when going head to head with a crotch rocket and I never do that..

Agreed 100%. Was shopping for used before I decided on the '11 and the only one I eliminated every time was the Candy Lime Green ones. The green on the MX bikes would have been decent, but I just don't like the CLG.
