Hey all, just picked up a Versys yesterday. 2014, 2400 miles, $5,000. Bike is showroom perfect except for a white scratch on the tail light and the Two Bros exhaust (which sounds like crap, btw).
So far I'm liking the bike except for that darn exhaust. The bike feels soooooo light. It's only about 20ish(?) pounds lighter than my FZ8N was, but it feels like it's 100lbs lighter. It's nice having the bikes power lower down too. The roll-on power is nice. The FZ8 didn't do a whole lot until you were over 6k and was geared tall, so that equated to over 35 mph in 1st gear. Wish 1st gear on this bike lasted longer. It kinda feels like my CBR250 did where 1st gear was almost useless.
Anywho, I'm sure I'll have questions and such when I start throwing accessories at the bike.
EDIT: Oh, I also had the Sargent World Performance (Low) seat waiting for when I got the bike home. Hope that sucker breaks in after a few thousand miles. It's pretty hard.
Past Bikes: FZ8, CB500X, Boulevard M50, Gladius, CBR250R, Blur SS220i
