I was looking at/sitting on the new V Strom today. It's obviously a bigger bike physically compared to the Versys, just like the previous model. The dealer had two on the showroom floor, a white one and the burnt orangey colour (which didn't do it for me). One was totally standard and the other was farkled with a few bits and pieces. I know the quality of the Versys is OK, but the VS doesn't look any better and again, it's been built to a price. Sitting on it, well, both feet on the floor and a comfy riding position. You seem to sit more in the bike, or maybe the bulk of the fairing makes it seem like that. It would certainty offer more weather protection overall compared to the Versys. Overall, TBH, it looks just as bland as the previous model.
Good luck exploring the infinite abyss
