Versys parallel twin
So... pardon my ignorance, but tried to search this one not just here, but other websites as well, and could not find the answer.
My question is this; on the Versys 650 (I'm considering a 2015, but should be the same for all), do the cylinders fire at the the same time, or are they offset? For example, some time ago I had a Ninja 500r (EX500) that was a parallel twin, with both cylinders firing at the same time - felt like a single cylinder thumper (think KLR). So, I'm wondering if the 650 in the Versys feels like a thumper, or if the cyls fire opposite (one piston up, while the other piston is down)? Seems as though with the cyls firing opposite, the engine would be smoother than a thumper, and be more free-revving. Having not ridden one yet, just wondering about the characteristics of the engine. Thanks!

Is a Versys 650 on the horizon???
