I was initially considering a Suzuki V-Strom DL650, but it looks like the Kawasaki Versys is shorter and would fit the scooter parking spaces in our apartment building better. I went to a Kawasaki dealership yesterday and sat on one. Fugly, but otherwise not bad. Does anyone have any experience with the Versys? What kind of a discount off of the 418,000TWD selling price can I reasonably expect?

Get one second hand. Friend of mine is buying one with 2000km on it for only 310k. That's 100k cheaper and it's still pretty darn new.

I have never been a fan of brand new vehicles... I think that its overrated to buy a brand new car/bike.... you have to waste several weeks/months before you break in the engine and do lots of oil changes on the early weeks/months.... and for that pleasure you just lost around 100k of the comercial valua...
if you get a 1 or 2 years old car you get it at a better price and its in very good condition as Taiwan is so small that even if you drive every day i wont be that much...

so as M13 said, get a 2nd hand one..
Just about Everything can be done in Taiwan!!
