FS: 2012 Kawasaki Versys 650 ...under 6K mi !



Your basic Bumblebee Versitle System ...with a few tweaks




I bought this bike from the orig owner late last year.... with the intention that it would be my "secondary" bike..... Putting a couple of farkles necessary to fit me on it.....
Well guess what...Im still more comfortable on my V Stroms so its time for someone else to get funtime on this Versys


Low low miles from both the orig owner commuting in College Station(5K) from new...& me ( under 1K) in almost a year since I purchased it

Service was done jus before I got it...(oil & filter)
I put in a new air filter recently
The tires will need replacing soon
...or for a bit xtra ...I'll have new dual compound sport touring tires installed

The bike is very nimble & much lighter feeling than my 650 V Strom...tank holds appx 5gal of fuel
Prev owner did not ride it on gravel roads... & neither have I.... thats where I like the Strom better




If you're lookin for a bike like this...
Here it is..... $3800 as it sits ...
I have the owners manual & both keys



Farkle list~
Footpeg lowering kit (more room)
GL1500 footpeg rubbers (comfy swap & easily changed to stock)
Seat raising block ( out of production..last known one made for me...raises front of seat)
Kawa Accy tall shield ( byMRA)
Kawa Accy tail bag (xpandable & slip on)
Fenda Extenda (on front fender)

It's like it was built for me. Great looking bike. I wish I could buy it.

Glws...Versys aren't as appreciated as they should be in the motorcycle world. It's like a harley, sportbike, and adventure bike molded into one.

Is that GL 1500 rubber mounted on the stock Versys footpegs ? Interesting.

I rode my Versys to upstate New York and back....great road bike.

More agile and better handler than the V-Strom IMO.

(17" vs.(pardon the pun) 19" front wheel and shorter wheelbase)

Was this bike riding on 90 between madisonville and navasota today? If not, there is a twin to it running around!

Notch wing rubbers inside edge around alloy base with a hole underneath for bolt

That is a great deal for someone. Great bike that is overlooked by many. Quick, nimble, and bulletproof. Good luck with the sale.

Re: FS: 2012 Kawasaki Versys 650 ...under 6K mi !

I had one of these (an '08) and wish I hadn't sold it. When I felt the urge to hop on a bike and go for a 60-90 min ride out on the FM roads south of Tyler, I ended up hopping on the 650 Versys more often than the FJR.

It comes pretty close to the ride of a supermoto. I found that I could corner it a bit faster than I felt comfortable taking the FJR. That motor spits out a nice amount of very usable power. I'm 6'2", 250lb and it hauled my big self around at a very respectable clip.

At some point, I may downsize from the FJR. If I ever do, the 650 Versys will be high on my list.
