I don't know if this will work on the Versys, but I plan to take the switch case apart soon to see if it will...
I also have a Triumph Sprint, and on that bike I was able to take a standard Vista Cruise designed for another bike (a Suzuki sport bike if I recall correctly.) I first ground off the prongs that were designed to hold the vista cruise in place on the other bike's throttle cable.
Then I found a place in the switch case where I could drill a small hole to eventually place a small screw. You obviously need to find a spot where the screw won't contact any elecricals or the throttle cable. Next you drill a hole the same size in the Vista Cruise, precisely where it will overlap the hole you drilled in the switch case. At that point you place a short screw though the two holes, and that holds the Vista Cruise in place. Just like that, you're finished. It looks very clean. Even the screw doesn't show on my Sprint as it is hidden behind the flare of the grip.
It was a very simple install on the Triumph, but you do need to be careful where the screw hole is placed in the switch case or you can do a lot of damage.
I'd like to take credit for this, but I found a description of the process on webbikeworld a few years ago.
I can't say for certain if there are any open spaces in the Versys switch box to allow for placement of a small screw, but I plan to take a look this spring.
(Sorry, but the Triumph is in storage so can't take any pics for you right now. I hope I've described the process well enough to visualize. If not, I'll try to take pics this spring.)
