you will either grow to love the uniqueness of the 1st generation Versys, or you can spend money changing the looks, or you can trade for a bike you enjoy looking at.

Do a search for Versys street fighter to see what others have done.

To change front headlight you also need to change side tank panels, maybe even the tank due to panel mounts. The headlight support frame might also need changing as it has different mounts for lights, panels and windsheild. right side support next to tank/ coolant overflow might be different.

I cannot be sure.
I have taken the front of my 2012 bike apart. I have not seen earlier model front end.
Pretty sure the front frame support on the steering head is the same. Lter front fram might just bolt on.... noby has done it... easier to trade up to Mk2 version

Welcome, and . Checking "street-fighters" sounds like a good start.

Upgrade to a Gen II, the hands down ultimate motorcycle in form, function, and looks! ymmv

2007 is not bad though: try dressing it up with strategic reflective stickers and maybe color tinted headlight-lens cover film (?)

Gen 1 ist schon mach einfach kleineren windschutz drauf und fahr den ganz gemutlich weiter! Der moto ist echt toll und kann locker deutsche motos weg laufen von wert / kraft / verlust perspektiv. Lass den dir spass machen ist egal wie es oder du aussiehst.

Are such modifications allowed in your country? For example our legislation prohibit any changes in vehicle construction.

Replacing a lot of components sounds like a chunk of money...
How about adding some side driving/fog lights to the side of the front fairing to change up the looks?

Just a thought...I have a 2014 and do not mind the looks.
