Hi,

I might be buying a Versys X 300 on Wednesday. I sold my CTX700 last year and am getting the bug for another bike. I sat on it and it seems very nice. I just wanted something lighter and didn't want to spend alot of money either. The engine is 39 hp and only 20 ft/lbs of torque but it is a high revver and it seems to like the higher rpm's. It is only 385 lbs wet and with a 4.5 gal tank it should be able to go at least 250 miles.

But if I do get it I will post a pic or 2 and tell you about it.

I've been looking for a second set of wheels, and after much browsing around I've settled on a pre 1996 Vulcan 500. I prefer the cast wheels to the post 1996 spoke wheels. Nice low seat and overall weight.
Now if only the dang wabbit would show up !!!

Can't go wrong with Kawi. Wow, 39 hp on 300 cc. Definitely enough power and highway competence. And range is fantastic with that large a tank. Nice and light to push around. Price will be competitive, too. The Honda 300 cc machines are also considerations, if you haven't yet researched them. Still, can't beat proven Kawasaki.

I have had friends who owned the Kawi 500 Vulcans, and they like them very much--relaible.

I had an '08 Kawi Vulcan 900 Custom that was great on gas (about 55 mpg; once got 63 mpg on a down-river trip), comfortable, and reliable.

@bikehiker ,
That's good. I only got 68-70 mpg on my Forza.
I loved my Kaws, but I still prefer my Hondas.
A good day in the cage still isn't as good as a mediocre day on the bike.

Back to the Versys,
I've read of several people having them and not one of them regretted it.
I'm sure there are a few, but there always is.

So, I guess this means Jeff is going green, eh?

Kawasaki just came out with new Ninja 400 twin. Maybe in the future that engine will be in the Versys.

I looked a the Versys last year. Good bike but not for me. Can't go wrong it will be a great bike enough power to be fun.

I never owned a Kawi. 5 Honda 2 Suz. 2 Yamaha.
