Hi. I just picked up my brand new Versys 2015 candy lime green from the dealer today and I am extremely happy with it. I traded in my 2009 V-Strom 650. I am sorry I waited so long to switch. I just ignored the Versys since I'm short but finally took a hard look at a lowering kit. I got the lowering kit from Motowerk along with the kickstand fix and mirror wideners. Even the salesman was singing the praises of the lowering kit. So glad I made the switch. Handles like a dream unlike the moribund V-strom.
