Plural form of Versys?

Is it Versys's? Versi? I think I'll just call it sexy

This is an often-asked question. Numerous discussions have led me to go confidently with "Versi" as the plural form.

I think someone needs to apply for a government research grant and do a study on this. Finally, a use for that combined degree in Sociology and English Literature.

You guys are creative. I'm sure i'll use all these expressions at one time or another (assuming I get to ride with another Versys rider).

Its Versys. That Versys. Those Versys. Kind of like deer. It works as a singular noun just as well as a plural noun, same pronunciation and spelling.

In a similar thread a few years ago, I recall the general consensus was one Versys, two or more Versi. YMMV
