Yes - EVERY car is trying to kill you, so watch out! (At least... thinking that "EVERY car is trying to kill you" might keep you safer...!)

Perhaps so, but that doesn't have anything to do with my question. I gather from your response that it was available for other "world" markets.

Give the man a cigar, see it had everything to do with your question
My Australian 2012 only came with ABS, no option not to have it. I believe in the UK they had the option. I think Canada may have had the option, fasteddie could probably answer that one.

NZ had ABS on versys since 2010 and you did have a option then but I think from 2013 you only had ABS versions.

Anyone?

Congrats and enjoy your ride. Feel the bike and get to know how the bike handles. Be safe and take it easy for a few kilos.

Thanks for the responses guys. and of course i know how to ride the bike and how to enjoy it and i intend too.

Loving the bike to be honest. before i was on a 600 bandit till it got written off. When i asked the question before about if there is anything a versys owner should know i was talking about if there was anything i should look out for on the bike itself as every bike is different or if there is anything that i should replace?
