Good comparison. I was taking a gander at the VStrom the other day and decided it really doesn't do it for me. Which is funny- because that's what I was initially out to buy in 2012, and LUCKILY the dealership had run out of those and suggested a Versys.

I was in the same boat I was convinced I want V-strong and then one day I saw a good deal on craigslist at a dealership nearby and decided to go check it out once I did that was it I was sold on the versys.

As a former Versys owner, I’m probably biased. I liked the 2012 model I spent a work-shortened vacation on so much that I bought one when I really didn’t have a shortage of bikes around the house. Its versatility—hey, good name, Kawasaki—and impossibly good handling won me over, as did its good mileage, comfort, and low cost."
So the editor pretty much got the ultimate machine: make, year, and model. Good for him.
