Coming up on two years of owning my 2012, which I purchased new. It sure as heck might be one of the best rounded bikes for general use. The one thing that keeps showing its face on just about every ride? Power, or the lack thereof. Outside of previous 650 thumper dual sports, (KLR, XRL), this is one of only a couple of street bikes I have owned with less than 100 bhp. Getting up to speed, rolling the throttle to either merge with traffic on the highway, or make quick passes on back country roads, is not cutting it. In the bike's defense, I did switch to a 44 tooth rear sprocket almost immediately. I didn't buy the Versys for Friday night drag strip bragging rights but, I also didn't think I would miss the instant availability of power I had with prior rides. I do. A lot.
