Many V1 bikes have the high fender mod. There are many options and variations to choose from. But an actual beak like some of the OTHER brand bikes have isn't quite available. Now with the V2 models there are a couple beak designs out there. Just do a search on "high fender" to get you started.

I am the guy that makes the GS style beak - see the thread on beaks on this forum and search versys beak on Ebay

I live in Thailand where we did not get the Gen 1 Versys so nothing to model it on. I am in Canada now and will be meeting a fellow forum member Fast Freddie to use his bike as a Gen 1 model this summer. I will not be making them until I return home to Thailand in October.

To my knowledge the UK one you mention is the only Gen 1 beak available at the moment.
My Gen 1 version will be per the Gen 2 GS style beak you see on Ebay and on this forum.

Teaser pic of the V2 version with side panels!
Robert is the MAN! I'm sure the V1 panels will be equally awesome.
