Just purchased a 2017 Versys LT (black) for my 19 year old son. Been dual sporting with him since he got his M1 3 years ago. He rides a Husaberg FE390, I ride a KTM 500 exc. Summers here are HOT so wanted to get something more asphalt friendly for jaunts through the mountains. I picked up a Speed Triple R for myself and the Versys LT for my son. I took it for a spin and fell in love with it so I think a white 2018 is next on the list. Cheers!
