I forgot to ask: what are your thoughts on getting the extended warranty? I purchased the 4 year extended warranty through Kawasaki, but after speaking to the service manager about the reliability of the Versys, am now having buyer's remorse (i.e, the $$ spent). I have 60 days to back out on it.....
If it were me, I'd back out. Generally, extended warranties (for homes, cars, appliances, motorcycles, etc.) are high profit and low risk for the warranty seller. They commonly won't cover "normal wear" items like tires, batteries, chains, brake pads and so forth, and that's what you will end up spending money on.
IMHO, the Versys is reliable as a stone, though a bit more complex. You might have to spend some hard earned $$$ on the occasional repair, but the odds are pretty reasonable it could be less than what you're paying for the extended warranty.
My Versys doesn't have a pile of miles on it just yet, but my BMW K75S has over 54,000 on the clock and it has never needed anything beyond regular maintenance and a little TLC (knock on wood). It's a German stone.
Just my two cents.
