Bad vibration? OK, I can tell it's a twin but I wouldn't call it bad vibration. Unless of course, I have the only V that runs smooth.

Yeah, its funny how much worse the original V has gotten a bad rap for vibration. Mine has never been objectionable at all, in fact it is almost non existent.

That is the best vid of a decent wheelie on the Versys. I suppose the 2010 does that better too? Did that sound defensive?

Thumbs up

Agreed. Vibration on my 08 is minimal at best. I enjoy being dialed in to the motor a bit. I'm still liking the style of my 08 better than the new ones. It would seem as though they're trying to achieve some sort of KTM/ BMW GS hybrid look....not that that's bad, but just not for me. The original Versys style is still great. Enjoy.

Who cares about that bike, I just wish I was cruising around Sardinia for a few days!!

Actually, I have mixed feelings about the looks of the new one. I think it's a toss up for me, but when I found my '08 used for about $3500 less, I was sold on that!
