Damn, 2100? That seems an exception, not a rule
Indeed. It had been traded in at a Honda dealership. I assume they gave the previous owner little or some low amount for it, a Kawasaki ending up at a Honda establishment. I watched it for weeks, and then that turned into months. I was in and out of the dealer getting oil filters and ordering some Honda parts, and had to walk by the thing every few weeks.
It started out at $3,300- and week by week dropped until "$2,100" late one Friday. I had to work in the morning, and had a riding chum go snag it for me after he test drove it first, tying it up with some cash till I could get to it on Monday.

A dealer in neighboring Wisconsin (unrelated to above) seem to often have a bargain
on new/no miles/non currents, they are probably 500 miles from me. Last I had checked I think I could have had it shipped to me for $350-400. I would have driven over with a trailer probably. I saw others at this price before, some were on the west coast and I would have had one shipped if I had not "stolen" mine for such a song.
They have a 2014 with ONE MILE ON IT for $5,300 bucks.
For me, that is one of those deals where I would not have to drive it, as long as they could assure me it had a clean title and had not been dropped from a truck. They consistently have deals like this, I think it's LEGIT.
Or fly in and RIDE it home? Heck, it even has ABS, if that's something you would like.
2014 Kawasaki Versys ABS
Kaukauna, WI 54130
New, Sportbike Motorcycle, Candy Lime Green, 649 cc, 4-stroke, DOHC, 4-valves per cylinder, parallel twin, 1 mi., 461 lbs.
To snag a NEW Versys for that kind of money seems like a deal to me. Often the best deals are on the LAST MODEL year of a past version, instead of the first year of the NEW model.
Here is a link to some other examples to watch, dig around a bit
