MCN - BMW 700GS vs. Rivals -- Versys still loved!

Check it out -- 4 riders trying 4 different bikes...

According to the desc: We tested it against the Kawasaki Versys, Suzuki V-Strom 650 and Triumph Tiger 800too see which is the best mid range adventure bike.

Still had 2 of the 4 riders pick the versys, even in 2012!! Everyone said it was the most "fun" out of all of them. Not the most comfy (as I could have predicted) but they said its hard to pass up for the low cost and how much thrill you can have.

Givi Tall Windscreen, Givi Top Rack and Case, Givi V35 Bags and Mounts, Givi QuickLock Tank Connector+Bag, Oxford Heated Grips, Nuvi 550 w/ Ram Mount, Barkbusters Full Wrap + Storm, Motowerks Flatfoot, Spools and Tank Protector, Bobbed Fender, Grip Puppies, 12v SAE Socket, Packjack, Airhawk 1 (med), Scala Rider G4, Contour Roam2

Next Stop: 44Tooth Sprocket (To be installed)

Yeah I think their reviews were "spot on" as they would say on that side of the pond.

The seat on the Versys is uncomfortable? What is he talking about lol!!

Nice overview I think if the Versys had a proper seat and windscreen they all would have picked it in the bunch. Ok the Tiger is cool too...
