Default Wish my Versys looked like this when I bought it

Am I the only one who think this thing looks sexy?

I personally wouldn't have bought one if it looked like that.

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.

Don't like the colors and the beak is too big.

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.

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'...?
