Hello from Holland

Hi, I'm Nico aka "Lampie" (means lightbulb)

I've created this account because my wife has bought a 2017 Versys 650 SE today.
Yes , I can pay for it


Because I went from a Suzuki GSX650F 2008 to a Honda VFR800X Crossrunner 3months ago, she was tempted too.
She had a Red Suzuki Bandit GSF650SA 2011, but that drived like a pig.
It's heavy in corners. and nervous on the throttle. always a struggle.
That's why she bought the Kawa.
The Yamaha tracer MT-7 was the runner up and also the Honda NC750X, but with only 55 PK (horsepower) it was quite tame.

She liked the color of this specialedition.
It's a dealer-demo bike with 696km on the ODO , 3 months old.
We've agreed on the side-cases and hand-guards + tankpad extra.

More pictures will follow when we have the bike @ home.

Welcome. Suggest SW-Motech crash bars if there is any chance she may drop it on it's side. They'll save some money if that happens. Love the two tone graphics.

Congrats, I really like the color combo available to you in NL, for the newer 650's. For us in the states for 2016/2017 it's black, black, a brownish metallic, and orange. None of them are unattractive but the green/black looks really nice, and I've only seen it on the 300's here.

Today, we've mounted the panniers ourself

(had a discount, tankpad, panniers and handguards, but it was a DIY job, no problems)
