newbie from Ontario

Hello all; Recently traded an 08 Versys for the 2015 650 LT model. Miss some characteristics of the 08, but like most traits of the new one. Will follow up shortly with a comparison.

I think my envy light just came on. Like my 08 a lot but the new model looks very nice indeed.

Being from Ontario, I take it that the heated hand grips were just too sexy to pass up?

Picking up a brand new 2014 today. I sat on a 2015 1000 and considered it briefly until I noted that it was all but double what I paid for the 2014.

In the end, I am downright giddy with the deal I got on the 2014 so I will refrain from pining for a 2015.

Look forward to your thoughts!

hi all and thanks for the welcome . Born and raised in London, Ontario. Live just outside in Strathroy now. Don't have access to the same shop space so the mods to the 2015 may take longer than the 08. Except the seat ! Long ride coming in Aug/ Sept. See you in the modification and ride section soon. Cheers.
Did you buy the 2014 in Dorchester?
