Chris from Woody’s told me today that they no longer can source hubs for the Versys 650. The machine shop making them closed plus the demand for them was not high enough to justify getting another shop to make them. They were selling for $900 front and $1,300 rear list price which he thought was the reason they didn’t sell. Looks like the V-Strom 1000 front is the only option.
did you miss the other recent thread on RAD hub/spokes?


the 19" DL1000 wheel has never been the only option.

...I've seen a 130/80 which is same/similar diameter but a 130 on the front doesn't interest me.
the 130/80-17 front shouldn't interest you. it was the only option in an off pavement 17" front 10-12 years ago, although the 130/80 also performed extremely well for the long distance trip riders. now there are a number of much better options for the Versys front wheel.
