Hi from Bogota, Colombia

Hi, Iím a new owner of the new Versys 650, 2015.

I want to learn all about this awesome bike, this is my second bike, my first one was a KTM Duke 200, the change was night and day in riding comfort.

I Hope I can help other users when i have more knowledge about this bike

See you on the forums!

Only minor issues I felt there were when I first bought it were the cowl buzz and the vibrations seemed a little too much. However, after riding 1000 miles either I have learned how to tone these two things out or they have broken in. Either way, neither seem to be an issue for me anymore.

I had to change one engine gasket because it was leaking oil. and now i have some "tack" noise in one of the front caliper just 1 or 2 seconds to a total stop of the bike, but the mechanic doesn't seem to know what it is.
