I guess the show does not come on regular non-hd channels, I can't find it on my box.

I saw all of these shows last year. Very cool. And actually, the Kawasaki episode is what got me interested in buying a bike in the first place. What a efficient bike building plant!

There is no Versys segment. Unless this is new from last years episode, no versys anywhere in the hour long show.

I'll have to watch that as soon as I have a few more minutes. I had a 2000 ZRX for 7 years! I put more miles on that thing than all the other vintage bikes I've owned combined! (Old Kawi's, an 81 Guzzi LeMans, 75 Goldwing, CB450, a couple of others...) I loved mine too, and that's what drove me to give up my vintage rides. I loved those bikes, but I hate breaking down, and I just can't really travel on them as well. That's what brought me to my V! Cheers!

At least I sold mine to a friend so I'll get to ride it now and again. I put 50,000 miles on it in five years (with two other bikes in the stable). But all good things must pass. The new Z1000 has caught my eye but I bought the V because of it's simplicity and reliability, gas mileage and comfort. I got an '09 green V because it was the same color of my '02 Rex.

If you were paying a lot of attention they were demonstrating the automated parts bin for the Versys. The sensor key with the bar code to open and close the bins had a picture of a red Versys.

And I believe they were riding a ER-6N onto the dyno. I was a little disappointed they spent so much time talking only about the 6 and the 14 as far as current bikes go. Interesting to see the plant and learn a little about Japan.
