New Bike

Hello Versys forum

I just today purchased my new 09 Versys. It is in the green color, which I'm not sure what the exact color is. I paid $6000 out the door, but added the extended warantee for a little more. I've only got 50 miles on it but it seems to have all the performance that I need, 4000 RPM till 500 miles, 5000 after that till 1000 miles, and then it is considered to be broken-in. I may not keep it to those exact numbers, but I will take it easy on it for a while.

Welcome. When I got mine a couple months ago it seemed like it would take forever to reach the break-in but it is so much fun to ride it came way faster than I expected. Enjoy

New Versys Extended Warranty??

Enjoy your new Bike!!
Was wondering if anybody has an opinion or knows anything about extended warranty offered by Kawasaki Good Times Protection Plan? Is it worth $627 for four years warranty? I only ride between a 1K to 2K a year??
