Hello from Florida.

Hello every one new guy here looking to pick up a Versys for my 30th birthday. I have found a 2011 and a new left over 09 that im looking at. I wanted to knwo what year would you guys recomend. I went to the dealer wanting a FZ-8 but was strangely drawn to the Versys. I have been riding since I was 8 and on the street since I was 15 so Im not new to bikes or riding. I just sold my 04 SV1000 Suzuki and have an old 83 GS750 Suzuki im trying to sell. Thanks for the help.

Jim

Either year would be a good choice. All depends on which look you like better and the best deal money wise. There are some pretty good deals here on the forum most times.

The biggest difference is price as there are not a lot of changes made from the 2010 on. If you get a good deal on a 2009 you can put the savings into upgrades for the bike. I brought my real fast burnt orange 08 in 09 with only 3700km on clock and got a real ggod deal.

I guess I should have added that I like the blue color better and that there is about an 800 price difference between the two.

Welijo the blue does look better than the red to me. I like the 2012 yellow the best but I would rather save a couple of grand on a left over model.

I did look at both of those. I am hoping they will still be around after the first of the year. I have to wait till after christmas before I drain the bank account per my financial advisor (wife).

Have you purchased a bike yet??? I am looking to sell my low low mile Blue 09 /w 1,800 mi..... I bought it new, not even a scratch, only short Sunday rides. Brand new matching tourmaster jacket goes with it. I will be putting it up on the for sale area as soon as I take some pics but thought I would give you a heads up. I live in the Tampa area give me a shout.
