Questions about the Versys
Hello! I have recently become interested in the Versys. With the recent news of Buell, my dream of buying a new XT in the next year or so has gone out the window. I currently ride a Buell CityX. Before it, I had a Buell Firebolt 12R, and before that, I had a Yamaha FZ6. I miss the upright position of the FZ6, but love the torque of a Vtwin. My current problem with the CityX is, well, im 6 foot tall, and its kinda small. My legs start to hurt pretty bad after a 100 or so miles, and the windblast is harsh for anything over 55 mph. So, on with the questions!
Anybody ever ridden a Buell CityX? If so, how does the power difference feel? How does the power of the Versys feel overall? I have sit on one at the dealership and it is definitely more comfortable, more along the lines of the FZ6 I had, only a little bit more comfy. How is the wind protection with some after market windscreens? Whats the service intervals like? How are the vibrations?
I'm really looking at getting a bike that is good for long distance touring, and also good for short rides around town to do some errands. I also like to carve up some twisties once in awhile. I feel the Versys would be a good fit for all of this, but want a little insight on it.
