Greetings from AZ

Hey everyone, just picked up my 2015 Versys 650 last week. It's a bit of a change coming from an NC700, but every time I ride it I realize it's the bike I should have bought instead of the NC700 anyway.

Does anyone know if the saddlebags from the '14 Ninja 1000 will fit the Versys? The sales guy said they would, but I'm looking for confirmation before trying to get a set.

G'day. I agree the Honda 700 is not to my taste

Glad to see more 2015 V3 models pop up
Welcome from Balmy Alaska
As for the saddlebags, I have no idea. Have fun with it and take some pictures for us.

... from Florence. These 'bags' will fit....



They're 'TUSK' aluminum panniers, about $230 delivered in the US, plus mounts (I used GiVi PL447s at about $180).

Thanks for the welcome, everyone! And thanks for the recommendation for those panniers, eddie. Looks like they're out of stock right now but might be worth waiting for given the extra capacity over the Kawasaki ones.
