Hi gang,

From Ontario Canada.

I'm considering buying a versys. I was going to buy a Yamaha FJ-09 until I found out they limited the top speed to 115mph in north america. Now I'm looking for something with better performance.

Please feel free to sell me on a kawi.

Welcome, if you want speed then Versys is not the bike for you with a top speed of 190kph, ive got a ninja 1000 which does 265kph if thats more your thing or if you really want speed in a kwaka the zx6r or zx10r or zx14r

Your worried about the top end yet that's double the highway speed limit here lol.

New versys owner here from Ontario, if you decide on the kawi then maybe we could hook up for a ride sometime, or maybe not if your going 120 mph lol

That is a drag that a 100+ hp bike is limited to so low a speed when others can go to 186 mph or more. Not that it's legal, resonable or prudent!
