Hello Everyone

Hi! New member from Far East here. Just got my Versys delivered today. My biggest bike ever after roughly 18 years of riding . Initially quite intimidated by the weight standing still but cooled off riding it - the engine carries the bike's weight very respectfully .

Hope to learn a thing or two from you guys. Cheers!

Many thanks for the warm welcome guys

The fact that the bike is locally/regionally assembled helped in lowering the bike's sales price here (comparatively to other marquees). Couple that with extensive dealer/service networks and parts availability in the region, well you get a lot of us Southeast Asians riding Versys .

Bruder,
First, welcome.
Second, our Versys not really local assembled lah..... ask around and see.
Third, bikes reaching our shores are one of the most expensives, thanks to "you-know-who/what"

Bro.

What he meant is regionally, which means Thailand. CKD and not CBU.
Expensive, you are right:-you-know-who/what..

Bro Fastoman,
Thailand is just a transit area too, a short stint in the parking bay and then to bolehland.
Not to say Thailand is not capable but I think it's basically the volume of production. Too small a quantity to changeover / setup
