Maybe it's a good thing no one knows what to make of the Versys. A brand new bike for $5900 that does well at almost everything. I had a cruiser (too heavy and a bear around town), a sportbike (only fun at jailtime speeds and no fun around town), and my big thumper (fun everywhere but on a trip). The Versys is fun everywhere and just plain works. It's not super fast, or spectacular at anything but is the most FUN bike I've ever owned. I feel confident that my abilities match the bikes perfectly. I don't need Rossi reflexes or a Trump wallet to have fun. Kawasaki, you nailed it on this bike. Thanks!
