Yep, Utah is my home now. It's weird, only thirteen years away from the East and I feel so far removed from that place, it may as well be Mars. It's almost like I never lived there.

So in Canada the new Versys is $1000 more than the Ninja 1000 ABS. If that ratio holds true for the U.S. that would put the Versys at $12,999 for us folks down south.

That's my guess anyway.
