2010 versys comparison

Anyone have a 2010 model that had a earlier model in the past. I would like to know if the new model has less vibes do to the new engine mounting. Over all how do u like new one.

I have a 2009 V with 2200 miles that I ride in NJ. I have a 2010 V with 500 miles I ride in WV. The 2009 V became smoother as it was broken in, and smoother yet after I put in synthetic oil (Amsoil) at 1200 miles. The 2010 has more vibration than the 2009 V, but also fewer miles. It is a little smoother now at 500 miles than it was when I first got it. So far, I don't see any evidence that the rubber engine mount is reducing vibration in the 10 V.

However, both bikes are a pleasure to ride. The vibration is not serious enough to bother me.

I have a 2010 with about 1000 miles and I have noticed that it seems to be getting smoother the more miles I get on it. I thought it was my imagination.

Wow, there's a man that doesn't like to be away from his Versys!

My 2010 is smooth. A little clunky between first an second but vibration is so minimal.

Thanks 2010 owners. The reason I didn't reply earlier today was because I was busy buying my own 2010.All I can say about my first 75 or so miles is it's great being back in the Versys saddle. Has anyone put a pipe on yet-if so which one.Also, many V owners keep raving about going to a 44 tooth rear sproket,any 2010 owners done it and how do u feel about that change? I made a big mistake by trading in my 08 V for a close out on a 08 FZ1,thinking it would make a great sport touring bike.I'm sure a lot of FZ1 owner think it does, but there is something about the power and torque and rideability of a V that is hard to describe unless u own one. Of course if the V had an extra 25+ HP and more torque that would be ok too.Never the less I could not be more excited to be a V owner again.
