Hello from Arkansas

I am strongly considering a 09 versys. I currently have a 2005 CVO v-rod that has a trask turbo charger. I have been riding bikes for over 30 years and the versys looks like it will be a fun bike to have. I look forward to contributing to this forum, and possibly meeting some of the members.

I want to thank everyone for all the use full information here. I test rode a versys, and it handled like a dream but it was lacking in power. I found a new ulysses xb/xt for $7500.00 out the door. The handling is similar, but no comparison as far as power.
I own a buell now. Thanks again for all the info. I kawasaki ever puts 1000cc motor in the versys, they will have hit a home run.
