This is non-scientific but the WEIGHT is?

I just put the bathroom scales (digital) under each end of my Versys to weigh.

Sw-Motech panniers rack, Givi panniers (empty), H&B crash bars, Corbin seat (heavier than OEM seat), one notch less than half a tank of fuel.

Front on scale the rear tire on ground and assistant balanceing at the hand holds at rear.

207 lbs

Rear on scale and assistant balanceing at handlebar only and front wheel on ground.

246 lbs

Total wet with half tank and panniers mounted = 453 lbs

I sat my Versys on the truck scale in John Day Oregon. Full tank, SW-Motech racks, Givi 360's, plus gear, 550 pounds.

550 - woah, that is chunky! I wonder if it might be that the truck scales aren't accurate with that low of weight?

I doubt that is it is real accurate, but it is in the "ballpark". The scale read 750# with me on the Versys, I figure I'm about 190# with my riding gear on.
