Hi all. I have been eying the Versys for a while now, and knew I'd eventually buy one once I got to ride it at a test ride event this summer. Well I finally sold my previous bike and it didn't take long before I picked up a low-mileage 2011 Versys. I was smiling the whole ride home.

Welcome PZ, where are you in NJ? Good idea buying a low miles used one, having to baby it for the first 600 miles for break in is torture...

Thanks, I'm in West Orange. Buying used was more of a budgetary issue than anything else. I had a certain amount of cash to spend from the sale of my Sportster. I tried to haggle for a new one first... wasn't gonna happen within my price range. Imagine my surprise when the first number the dealer came at me with was over $11,000!

Now you have to dress warm and ride it!
I just got a brand new 2011 for less than 7k out the door incl. tax.
I'm in Basking Ridge and waiting for some warmer days.
Good luck with your new ride!

Man I wish I went to your dealer! Or maybe just had your negotiating skills . I couldn't even get anyone down to 7k. Either way I am sure I will get my money's worth of enjoyment out of this machine - and then some!

I picked up some heated gear last year so I'll hopefully be riding as long as there's no snow on the ground.
