History
I had so much fun with my 2019 Versys 650 ABS in the Philippines, while on my annual vacations there.

I had to add one to my stable in California too!

I had planned on buying another new 2019 model. But, I saw this lightly used mint 2017 Versys 650 on Cycle Trader, the deal was too good to pass up. Purchased used LNIB in stock condition with 4,100 miles @ Sept. 2019.

Let the mods begin!

Hi there,

That's a huge list of mods. 😯

Would it be possible to share the 3d print file for the riser block please? Any link from where you downloaded it from?
