Switched to a Versys

Hi all, just gave my NC 750x to my son as I found a 2015 versys 650 lt with only 2500kms, been wanting this bike for a while so very happy.

I am currently in Reinfeld MB, but we are hoping to move back to NS Canada this summer.

The NC is perfectly adequate but that was my issue it never seemed to have any character and I never enjoyed short shifting all the time... My son however moving up from a ninja 250 thinks it is the best bike in the world.

That was also the impression I got from reading reviews. Typically Honda.

Welcome Geoff. Your comment is precisely the point I've tried to explain to folks for years. The lack of character, or soul, or "that something special" is why I've sold several excellent motorcycles over the years. Each was highly reliable and performed well but each lacked that "something" that helped make the bond. The 650 Versys, however, is the sort of bike that has soul.
