0-60

Growing up in the 60's I coveted a Norton 650 Commando. Great looks---and more importantly (to me at the time!) fast! I always remember looking for a bike's 0-60 time as a means to judge the bike's speed off the line. Anyone know the numbers on a Versys for this measurement?

Thanks!

1/4 miles times are good indication of acceleration. I think the Versys runs a 13.3ish or so. Looks like the old Norton 650 made 15 less HP and was about 40 lbs heavier.

This is a good site for acceleration.

They say 4.2, and list the ER-6n as 3.9 Might be close.
