I first saw/rode a Versys when a Kawasaki rep had one for demo rides at a track event back in 2008, and I was immediately smitten. I watched prices and kept up on the forums (mostly this one) just waiting for the right deal. Yesterday I got a brand-spanking new Candy Plasma Blue 2009 Versys for an OTD price of $6679. They will prep it Monday, and I can pick it up Tuesday (or when it stops raining here in Atlanta!). I'll try to post photos later.
If any of you are in Atlanta, I will tell you the going price is about $6600 for '09s. Several dealers have stock they have to move. I went to Millennium Cycleworks and they were great. Another dealer tried to get me to bite on $7400, then was mad (actually called to admonish me
) when I struck my better deal. Too bad, so sad.
I am so thrilled about this one, and the outrageous praise I keep reading helps me feel good about buying the Versys. I'm sure many of you will agree that this forum is so helpful in providing a lot of insight into the numerous positives and the few things to address.
I do have a question: Is there an aftermarket extender for the rear part of the front fender? I read on a post that someone didn't like that rocks were hitting his radiator. Just wondering.
So, I'm happy to be part of the Versys family, and can't wait to ride!
