Got a Versys

2008 with 7K miles in immaculate condition. Has Motowerk lowering kit and Givi windshield and swingarms spindles. I added Spiegler braided steel brakelines but the feel's the same. Love the bike though. Learned it's best not to put in 6th below 55 mph. Glad bless Kawasaki for making this bike. I love it!

I prefer red too and think my 2008 looks better than later versions.

Welcome TR! They are just awesome bikes! I'm still trying to wear the factory dunlop tires out. You might have new ones if not just be aware they are not the best and can slip! Congrats!

I'm in OH too. The previous owner kept meticulous care of this Versys and put on a new set of the Dunlop stockers. They seem okay and look to last another 3000 more miles. What's better?
