Honda Versys edition

A guy is selling a 2009 Verys bought from an insurer (?!) after a vehicle theft. He says it has now a very aggressive look When I read that I had to burst out laughing. Looking forward to your impressions.

I think it looks pretty cool with the two headlights and the mirrors they've added. I wonder how the headlight setup was done?

I'm sure it runs better just due to the Honda badge. ;-)

I am very interested in the mirrors. Do you know if they are wider than the stock mirrors? Do you know the brand or where they can be purchased? I want wider mirrors but I'm looking for a cleaner approach to this problem than buying mirror extenders.

Looks interesting
I think badging it as Honda though is a mistake, if He's ashamed of riding a K then by all emans get rid of the Badging, but to badge it as a Honda?

I'm all for a more agressive looking versys but this thing just looks silly. Removing the Kawi badges is pretty normal, but adding honda badges? WTF? The instruments do appear to be missing as they probably removed the stock headlight/gauge bracket inorder to mount the dominator lights. Not fabbing up a new gauge bracket, now thats jsut darn lazy.

Overall opinion....... Not Impressed.

A Honda disguise for a stolen Kawa? Or the thief was going to claim a bipolar japanese syndrome in his insanity defense.

I think there's something funny in that those of us that support de-badging or even re-badging as some obscure or Euro brand, we all uniformly recoil at the thought of turning our Kawis in to Hondas! Lol...

I think the mirrors look good but the twin headlights look like they don't belong on the bike, to me.

I am not a fan of the twin headlights with the stock cowling. The rebadging thing is cute, but also kind of silly unless you make up something different like "KawasiMoto".

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!
