Kawasaki Versys...Bolivia

Hi all,
For sale is my '08 versys 650 which i bought in Colombia about 7months ago.
I now have a job offer, so unfortunately she has to go. So, here's the spec:


recent service including new oil filter & oil
cleaned air filter
new rear pads
engine checked
new rear tyre (tubeless pirelli scorpion)
new chain & sprockets

The front pads where vulcanized and the front tyre was changed when i purchased the bike in Colombia almost 7months back. Both have plenty of life left in them.

I recently had the bike fully serviced at Honda, Cusco, where they managed to put a dent in the fuel tank. This is aesthetic damage only but still very annoying. Other aesthetics are the left mirror is fixed with electric tape, does not affect the view, and the front sprocket cover is a piece of plastic. Serving its purpose very well. The rubber button on the mode selector is worn, you can still change the settings but it needs to be covered with tape to prevent water getting in.

Attachments & Accessories:
Extended screen
Crash bars
Skid plate
Aluminium Panniers
Power Supply
Electric pump
GPS cradle (no GPS)
Tools (spanners, allen keys, money wrenchs, tyre pluggers....)

The bike is registered in the USA and has just over 100000km on the clock and still sounding peachy.

Jacket and trousers with thermals, winter & summer gloves included if wanted!

Although the bike has cosmetic damage it runs perfectly and mechanically needs for nothing $3400 ONO

I'm currently in La Paz and heading down to Uyuni. I will be in Bolivia for another month or so. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

reduced price

I have been offered a job so I'd like to sell the bike a bit quicker than before. I've lowered the price to $3400 and still open to offers. Cheers!

Hey! Is the bike sold? Where in Bolivia are you? I guess the bike has colombian plates? This makes it very difficult to register in Bolivia. Am interested though.....
