Look, it's the Aprilia Versys!

I guess the big dogs at Aprilia took note of the Versys:

To me it bears more than just a striking resemblance to the 1G Versys. I mean right down to the headlight!

Congrats Kawi! You made a bike so awesome the Italians are copying it!

It does tend to get like cars/trucks....someone gets a winning look or color and than all of a sudden it looks like everyone has the same thing.

BTW, a lot of us really appreciate that sparkplug write-up you did some time back. I was dreading it until I saw that post and it was a piece of cake....thanks again.

Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!

Indeed, and it shocked me to see this happen. It's sort of like having a nice, new Acura NSX and seeing a Ferrari styled in similar fashion, you know?

You're more than welcome. I needed it myself just in case the need arose once again to perform the maintenance - until the bitter day I ended the ownership of my Versys. One day I'll get another one - the V will almost always be my beloved, right behind the ZRX.

I think it's less good looking than the Versys. But because it's Italian, people will LOVE it and still hate the looks of the Versys.
