I offload many miles from my car onto my Versys, which saves money. I look at miles on the Versys as free due to the savings. Worst case is break even for me.
But more important is that I will ride but I won't drive. I tend not to go out because I try to avoid putting miles on the car. I can combine shopping trips tomorrow rather than make one trip today and another tomorrow. I'll have a week off from work and never start the car up. Rather than go on a long several hundred mile weekend camping trip in the car, I'll stay home to save the cost of driving. I put less than 7000 miles per year on my car. This year quite a bit less than that.
Finances leading up to retirement are a very real concern. Not wearing out my car is part of the strategy. Cars are expensive!
But the Versys is freedom for me because it is so cheap to operate. That's worth a lot. There's nothing to keep me from taking a road trip on the V.
