I'm jealous, I love the Versys in green. My Ninja 650R is blue, but Kawasaki green is my favorite color for bikes.

Phil - DEPENDING on which way you swing - NOS = nitrous oxide, OR...

= New Old Stock.

I taugh that nitrous was NOX or n2o

But anyway, I guess in this case it's your second suggestion ... You'd have to be crazy to put nitrous on a Street bike, like strapping a bomb to your arse ...

Thank's Eddie

Sure. There are even older new bikes in the states.

This happens for various reasons. Sometimes it is because a dealer when into bankruptcy and by the time things got settled out and the bikes found a new dealer a periof of time passed.

Sometimes the dealer just won't come off the price and the bike sits until someone comes along who wants that particular bike.

I know of a new '07 Honda 919. The KBB value the moment you sign on the line is $4400, but the dealer is only knocking $1500 off the MSRP of $8500. If that dealer advertizes on the internet they might find a buyer who just has to have that bike. If they are waiting for a local buyer, well.
