A lot of good info is on that page actually. From what I can see there may be a few ways around it. Also from what people have said, the 2009 Versys is supposed to be available in California with the proper emissions equipment. They may even have another choice of colors. I know the European models get Green and Blue this year so maybe they are next for us.What Is Considered a New Vehicle?
California law considers any vehicle with less than 7,500 miles on the odometer when acquired by a California resident or business to be a new vehicle. This holds true whether or not the vehicle has been registered in another state. If you acquire a new vehicle from another state, you may not subsequently drive it to accumulate over 7,500 miles to circumvent the law. DMV cannot accept an application to register the vehicle, and you cannot register or operate the vehicle in California.
