Hey guys, I am looking at buying a Candy Blue New 2013 Kawi Versys for $5,900.00. Just looking for some input from you guys. I plan to add some hard bags ,larger windscreen, and bark busters. I want to use the bike for longer rides and commuting to and from work. I have had over a dozen motorcycles, but mostly supersports. I am getting to the point where I want comfort and long riding capability over speed and looks ( not that the versys is ugly by any means).
My only non super sports were the 2006 Suzuki SV1000s, 2014 Yamaha FZ-09, 2012 DR650SE, 1998 DR200S, and 2014 Honda Grom. I have sat on the Versys, V-Strom, and Tiger. Out of the three, I really, really like the Versys.
My big questions are:
How well does the stock fairings and windscreen protect you from wind while cruising on the highway.
I read the bike is a bit buzzy at highway speeds, is that true?
What kind of money I am looking at for adding color matching hard bags?
What kind of hp can the versus get up to with bolt ons?
Is $5900 a good deal for a new one?
Thanks guys I appreciate your time.
