I have been looking for a new bike for about a year. I am interested in a dual-sport bike. I just noticed the Versys and have been reading a lot about it and visiting the dealers to sit on their bike(s). I have seen prices ranging from full retail to just over $6000. Some Dealers are sold out of their 2008 allotment already. My biggest worry is the seat comfort. I don't know if Kaw will address this in their 2009 model.
