New Versys Rider in NJ ... #2

Got my brand spanking new Versys 2011 yesterday.

Was able to get it discounted since they are trying to get rid of inventory ... heck of a deal.

Took my bike out yesterday for a short rider and WOW.

I just came out of a Ninja 250 (was my first bike) and ... yeah, it's night and day.

PS: here's some pics ...

They sold it to me for 6700 + taxes and dealer fees = 7900 out the door

I haggled the price down a bit ... the original price was around 7700.

I'm mostly a dirt bike rider, but not too much dirt around here in NJ to ride.
I have a dual sport Ktm 450 that I will keep for that purpose.
Now.. for the Versus..when funds allow..some hand guards, some lower and side engine protection. I've been working on that seat, raised the front about 1/2 inch. Rode for 2 hours today and no pain! Also some wiring for heated gloves and a GPS.
I found my bike brand new on Craigslist for $6299..and was out the door on Sat. for less than 7k!
