You could always put a quantitative in front since it is a made up word.

Mary drove past a herd of three Versys on the highway.

The Imperial Red Versys is the sexiest of the lot.

Story continues...

While color-blind Mary was contemplating grammar, her voluptuous friend, Wendy, took one look at the orange Versys rider and thought to herself - "That's a nice ride..."

Its just Versys...like Moose is both the plural and the singular. I saw a Moose in the field. I saw two Moose on the road...

That's right. Versys is and can only be Versys... The plural of one Versys is two Versys, and so on.

"i" is used for plural form of nouns ending in "us"... You can end up with a plural "ii" if the letter preceding "us" happens to be an "i" such as "radius" = "radii".

Beside some verbs, nouns ending in "ys" are already in their plural form... So the Versys is already plural as it stands.

You're all wrong.
Versys is an abbreviation for "versatile system" (or if you are Japanese, its Vertex system).
Therefore the true name is Kawasaki Versatile system. If you had more than one Versatile system, there would be multiple Versatile systems. Abbreviate that and they would be Kawasaki Versyss.

I goggled this at http://theenglishspace.com/spelling/...-ending-s.html

Words ending in 's' become 'es' so Versys would become Versyses according to the rule.

I still think it's Versyseses...es.

Add more ...es and ...eses depending on the amount of Versys motorcycles and/or your current state of confusion.
