I now have a DRZ-SM,how does the Versys compare power wise. I love my DRZ and will keep it but would like to have something with bags for longer trips. I have the normal mods full yosh,air box mod,jd jetting kit. The DRZ motor is spun up pretty good at 75 mph even with the 16 tooth front sprocket,I assume the Versus with a 6 speed trans would be better.
Thanks and great site by the way,this is my first post.
I had until recently a DRZ-S for dirt riding. The SM has taller gearing, so it's a bit better than the S on the street, but there is no comparison to the Versys, power or comfort wise. It's not just the 6 speed box. A 6 speed box would be called an improvement for highway use if you put it on a DRZ like bike. On the Versys you could stick to the first 4 gears and still be more comfortable at speed than on your DRZ, not to mention have more power everywhere in the rev range. Really, it's not in the same league, even with the OE seat that everybody loves to hate on the Versys (that's because they never tried riding 300 road miles on a DRZ... ) it's significantly more comfortable.

If your keeping the Deezer anyways , the Verseys will be a great bike to compliment your garage ...........use it for the touring and longer day rides , then pull out Dizzy on friday night and take it to the sidewalks .......you sumo guys still do that ???
