Sold my Kawasaki Versys 650 after 6 years: Ownership & closing stats

The 30,000 km mark on the odo came in just before handing over the bike.

BHPian CrAzY dRiVeR recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Maybe the writing was on the wall for a long time, but I was just not acknowledging it. But after 6 more months of denial - I have finally decided to take a temporary break from biking.

Rode the Versys down from Trivandrum to Bangalore one last time, to hand over the bike to a friend, who upgraded from his Interceptor 650.

Quite a fitting last ride - Covered 586 km in 6 hours and 12 minutes to catch up with KarthikK, ebmrajesh and two friends who were on a breakfast ride to Yercaud from Bangalore. And then joined them on their return leg to Bangalore.

Finally crossing the 30k km milestone near Karur, TN

With the group at Dharmapuri

Got the bike washed and prepped after reaching Bangalore

Final odometer reading at hand over

Closing stats

Reposting some top memories from the earlier page to sign off from this thread.

The bike will be in our friend circle and hopefully will be seen in KarthikK's Ninja1000 ownership updates thread.
