I really love my bike. No bike is perfect, but mine is close to perfect for me.

SW Moto Bars on a 2019 SE

Not sure if it was this forum or another I am on. some one was asking if the SW MOTO crash bars from a 15 thru 18 Versys will fit the 2019 new bike. Well no they won't. Mounting points are the same but the Faring and cornering light panels of the 19 get in the way of the bars. Guess I will have to sell them to my son-in-law. He has a 15 model. Also the Givi Tank lock ring from the earlier models will not fit. Different tank filler setup.

So have finally thrown a leg over one, feels lighter and better balanced than the previous V1k, seems like they were able to lower the CG a bit. The fit and finish on it is incredible, as good as any European bike and noticeably better than the previous V. The sheer amount of tech on it is untouchable at this price point by anything else currently. It does look like at least for this year the US only gets the SE LT, and we only get the matte white/black and not the metallic green. Should hopefully be able to ride one in the next month or two.

I had forgotten everything all about the SE. went to my dealer today and there it was. Much more of a presence with that wide front fairing. Comes across more as a touring bike than the previous model. Strangely the wheelbase looked shorter but that could have been an optical illusion because of the new front fairing larger size. I think the flat black really cheapens the look of such an expensive bike, looks too plasticy to me. Also not fond of the header pipes, they could look nicer.
