Love the Versys but....
I sure would like some more HP, and better looks too. I just can't seem to get over the looks of the front of the bike. I'm sorry but the headlight assembly of the V is ugly. Coming off an FZ1, the Versys has enough power 95% of the time, but I long for more. I don't need liter bike power, split the difference and I think I'd be happy.
I see they keep coming out with cool models in Asia and Europe. I wish somebody would put the old GSXR750 motor in an upright seating position, comfortable naked bike. That would be cool. What I really want is a light bike, with dirt bike ergos, plenty of leg room, awesome handling, some wind protection, more power, better brakes and nicer looks. I like the Versys from about the gas tank on back.
I find myself looking at bikes and wondering, wonder what that one feels like? I sat on a big Harley over the weekend, while I'm sure it's comfortable I don't think I'd be happy at all with the handling or performance.
