G'Day or Hello

Hi,
I'm FriedCPU, 26, Hailing from the UK but moved to Australia just over 3 years ago. Been browsing this forum over the last week while I was deciding what my next bike was to be... well this afternoon I put a deposit on a brand new Kawasaki Versys 650

Dealer is hoping it will be in by christmas, he says this is because it will be 2014 model, they have just cleared out their 2013 stock.

A little disappointed it only comes in Magnesium Gray in Australia (unless someone can tell me otherwise and then I will get onto the dealer) as I would of loved the Candy Green, but, I can repaint at a later date if need be.

Seems like a real friendly forum to become a part of and can't wait to start sharing my enjoyment and farkles of my new machine

I'm liking the Ninja in burnt orange, real shame the Versys no longer comes in that colour

Welcome! Black on Black here..... sinister looking IMO. Lots of great help on this site. Got my '12 on close out here at my dealer earlier this year. The Versys is a great bike to customize and make your own. Have fun!

Well, I still think it looks brown but I havn't seen it in the flesh, I saw a 2012 he had in there for servicing which was 'gray' and it looked alright. Thing is the dealer says its 2014, and he says there is no difference not even colours, doesn't really matter, if I don't like it that much I will get it redone in green or burnt orange maybe, I am buying it for the type of bike it is not really the colour. But looking at the website/book, it certainly looks brown
