Accidentally bought a Versys
UPDATE: Picked it up today! A couple pics are on post 19
Ok, not quite accidentally, but it was a bit of an impulse.
I wanted a Ninja since I was a kid and 20 years later, I bought a 2001 Ninja EX250 as a learner in June 2010 (and got my license in July 2010).
This year, I decided I wanted something a little quicker and started looking at a 650R or a Versys. I went to the local Kawasaki dealer in May and looked at used ones. They had two Versys's, a stock 2008 and a lowered 2008 with a larger windscreen. They were 5899 and 5999 but that sounded really high so I passed.
Last week I stopped by just to look and they still had the lowered 2008 (which I wanted after reading about Speedy's products here) with a new price of 4999. I asked if they would do 4500 on layaway (cause I have to sell the 250) but they said I'd have to pay in full. I said I would if they could store it for the winter and pay with a credit card and they said yes, so I bought it! Unfortunately, I won't get to take it home until March...
