The linear Hyperpro dampers are cheap compared to a Scotts rotary style, which start at $500. Their mounting kit is quite pricey
For me its worth it while touring, especially on a windy day, takes twitchyness out of the steering and reduces end of the day fatigue. I prefer the slower steering in parking lots also. The traditional need for one, headshake while accelerating hard on a high HP bike, does not exist on the Versys but it is still very nice to have for me.
FWIW I paid $300 total for the mounting kit and damper a few years ago. That Hyperpro mounting kit looks different than mine also
*edit: zoomed in on the photo of the mounting kit, and the one pictured on the listing for the Versys 650 is in fact for a CBR 1000
