I just bought a 2015 Versys LT in Candy green metallic.
I am selling my 2012 Triumph Tiger XC ABS that I have owned 4 1/2 years. I just never really bonded with the Triumph - the engine was amazing smooth and torquey, but it made a normal loud gear whine noise that drove me crazy. The seat was a gel seat upgrade, but was still not very comfortable. The tires were tube tires because of the spoke wheels, so they were harder to find and were more of a hassle. The factory heated grips barely kept my hands warm on the hottest setting. The suspension was very capable but very harsh and uncomfortable. The 21" tire was not very confidence inspiring in the twisties. The stock shield was a joke - wind buffeting was unbearable. The shield had to be immediately replaced.
When I rode my new Kaw home, I was amazed by how quiet the engine was - all I could hear was wind noise. The seat was the most comfortable stock seat that I have ever had the pleasure of sitting on - my first trip was 100 miles and I was completely comfortable. The suspension was plush and the stock seating position very comfortable. There was practically no vibration at any RPM. It was the easiest bike to roll up 100 miles on that I ever have owned. When I got home from my trip I still had over half a tank left - Nice! The stock windshield works amazingly well for me - I am 5'10" . I am really glad I decided to replace the Triumph with the Versys 650.
So far I want a rear case and heated grips. The rear case was a shock - by the time I added together the case, rack, inserts, lock, base and everything else - it came to over $800 MSRP. I was able to get a discount from the dealer, but it was still WAY too expensive.
