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.
I believe Kawasaki is losing a lot of potential sales in the US to folks like us. I was very happy with my Versys 650 and was prepared to buy the Versys 1000 as soon as my dealer started taking orders.
Now that I have my V-Strom 1000 I am very pleased with it and wonder why I didn't buy one years ago.
