I made the switch from Versys to Tiger 1050 last year, with few regrets. The worst issue with the Tiger was the lights, which it looks like they've tackled nicely. The other was wind management as the factory screen had the same issues my Versys had. (Noise/turbulence.) I don't know if this bike has it solved, but both MRA and Mad Stad have provided good aftermarket for the Tiger, and I'm sure will continue to do so. These bikes aren't cheap though although you do get what you pay for.
This new Tiger has more power, better suspension, and the same comfy ergo. I hope they bring it to Canada someday. I'm curious if the Versys 1000 is meeting sales expectations or if they will be doing a facelift on it early. I have never seen a V1000 on the streets here, but I see lots and lots of Versys 650's on the road. The V1000 and Tiger 1050 seem like natural competitors.
