when to find the VIN on a Kawa Versys 650 2016

Hi, about to buy one and when checking the bike against the doc I had no problem finding the VIN number on a plate on one of the tube of the chassis on the right side of the bike just behind the fairing, see pic below - a bit too obvious or is it just me worrying for nothing.



Is that the correct location of the VIN for this bike... I normally found them on the steering column and engraved...
It did match the V5 and the HPI is also clear.

to other Versys owners out there ??? cheers

Thatís common enough,should also have a corresponding number on the steering tube of the frame

Probably correct in that ita just a handy reference plate but id be checking the headstock for the engraved number at purchase, that plate may be handy if you need to order parts etc but initial check should be headstock imo.
