Looks cool, but the name sounds like what you call your last girlfriend/ wife. Unless I'm pronouncing it wrong.

Interested... like. hmmm. but yes, stupid name... I guess its just the manufacturer name though.

They should call it the 'VR-sechs' (sounds like a German saying "we are sex" haha)

2008 Versys 650

Been riding 8 or 9 years, and have owned 8 or 9 bikes; its an addiction I can't quit...

Hmmm. They could have been a little more genteel and called it the Hooker, or Doxie or Dollymop I suppose. Lady of the Night would be too long to fit on the fuel tank.

Inline 6s usually have perfect primary balance without any need of a counterbalancer on the shaft. That is a little different configuration. Not sure if that will affect it. The offset cylinders do make it nice and thin.

If you buy one, please don't change the exhaust. I heard one of the new BMW 6s with an aftermarket pipe get on it leaving a gas station in West Virginny and the damn thing sounded like turbocharged chainsaw.
