Swore I saw my 1st Versys tooling down the street today but upon further glance, saw it was a Multistrada no less-the exact bike I've been debating popping for v. the V. If there's that small difference, maybe I'll pocket the difference and stick on some Duke logo on the V...
The first generation Multi didn't appeal to me. The new one definitely does. From all the reports I've seen; it's a winner.
Now the part I don't understand. Why would you want to de-badge your bike as something it's not? Is owning a Versus an embarrassment to you? I understand badging; I've done mine. I only left the Versys part but I did it because I think it looks better that way not because I'm trying to hide the fact it is a Kawasaki. I often have the uninformed, non rider ask what it is and I tell him it's a Kawasaki Versys that I've made into an adventure tourer.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not putting you down for doing it. It's your bike, do what you want with it; I'm just trying to understand why you did it.
