Getting a Versys - help me pick which one!
I figured this would be the best place to ask.
I'd like to build a scrambler-type bike for next year, and after a lot of research I landed on the Kawasaki Versys as a donor bike.
The famous WrenchMonkees 12 is the inspiration for the build.
I wanted to get your opinion because I have a couple of options:
A) 2009 with 18,000km. Decent tires, no damage, decent maintenance. For $3800 CDN
B) 2013 with 5,000 km. No mods, pretty much new. For $5000 CDN
C) 2011 with 22,000 km. Recent Tourance tires, shorty levers, higher gearing, touring windshield. For $5000 CDN
Assuming they're all in more or less same mechanical condition, and that I'll strip it down and build something different out of it - which one would you choose?
Cheers, and thank you for your replies!
