Does the new Versys share the Ninja frame?

Recall reading somewhere that the new 650 Ninja was employing a "trellis frame" and that it reduced the weight by some 20+ pounds. I am not unhappy with my 2013, I've added a taller windshield, dropped the back end with a TRex lowering block, running a tailbag, a Kaoko throttle lock, and lowered the pegs, verdict TBD. Also went to a 16T front sprocket, gas mileage approaching 60 mpg, and fitted some homemade brackets for soft saddlebags. Almost forgot added some crash bars, can't recall the manufacturer SW Mototech I believe. Tail bag and saddlebags are Nelson Rigg, and I'd highly recommend them. I digress, question did the Ninja frame make it to the Versys?
