See ya on the road....
Good choice on the V-Strom so you can ride NOW. I'm still racking up the miles every day on my DL650.
Still not a peep from Kawasaki about selling Versys 1000 in the US.
A great bike with good old Japanese reliability and affordability and not for sale US market.
Well thank you Kawasaki!
Makes it a lot easier to spend an extra $4,000 above the Versys 1000 price on a bike with lighter weight, better suspension, and more powerful motor. I am planning to pony up for the 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure.
Thanks again, Kawasaki.
