Oh god, you're so right. Sorry, but that ruins the bike for me... no Versys should have a beak!!!

But, as long as it makes people happy, I'm happy

No thanks! If I wanted an ugly Beemer, I would have bought one.

I wanted an ugly Kawi!

I'm not a fan of the beak either, but the rest looks quite good. Certainly different colors than you normally see. I gather the video was taken somewhere in Europe (or perhaps Asia).

If I wanted that look and color scheme I would have bought a BMW to start with To me when people try to make their Kawasaki look like another brand it just looks like their ashamed its a Kawasaki. I like my Versys and the brand and I assume it to it's fullest I like the beak mod though, but only from certain angles...and not in white.

Hate the colors. The beak would look better if it was a bit smaller I feel.

Owner is a friend of an acquaintance. My hats off to him.



Personally i like the look of the front fender too, but only if it is shorter, something similar to the honda nc700x. The one in the video, is a tad too long/large for my liking. After all it serves no purpose other than cosmetics.

Current : Maroon 2011.
- Front Fender Extender - Radiator Guard - 19mm Nissin radial master pump - Nissin 4-pot caliper - SS Brake lines - Osram Nightbreakers+ low, Osram Hyper Rallye 65W high - LED 30w spotlights & 3w DRLs - Rear Hugger - Givi crash guards - Yoshimura TRC Carbon - Dynojet PC5 - Scottoiler - R1 shock with Ohlins 14.2 kg/mm spring - Imitation Givi Windshield - Rear Givi rack with 24ltr Givi top box - Bosch dual tones - Z800 stock mirrors.

Up next :

What do you guys think of this? Parts from a Buell and a bit of custom brackets, bought from another lister.
I have a damaged front fender that Weljo sold me that will get 'sectioned', roughed-up, painted black and used with the "beak". So far I'm not sure IF I'll use the other Buell stuff, but - like the 'look'...?
