Hi,

New member to this Forum. Currently ride HD Street Glide, but hankering for a second bike - with a different ride. Considering in the 600 - 900 cc range for a smaller weight bike, etc. can you help educate me on the pros and cons of versys? Thanks, Pico

Welcome, pros are its economic, nimble, a fun ride and low maint, cons can be because its a very tall bike, lacks in my opinion a bit of fire power but has no probs keeping on with super sports around twisty hills, has some vibes, in some peoples eyes can be seen as a weird looking beast.

Welcome, i would say the pro's are 9 to1 vs the con's. It wasn't the 2008 bike of the year for nothing, plus alot of fun!!!

Welcome, excellent bike with lots of farkles available. Honestly one of my favorite bikes I've ever owned. Cons are resale seems to be low, but this is offset by saving old oem parts and putting farkles up for sale on here or ebay. Q
