I think Geoff was referring to the Versys 1000 = not the big V twins (shuddering at the thought).

The big Versys is well known for enticing grown men to part with their money to the salesmen.

On this board, the Versys 1000 is freely called the V, V1, V1K, V1000, Big V, Versey, "the bike"... purt near anything similar... while a V-strom may be called a Wee-strom (650) or the big boat just the 'Strom.

A fair number of new members here are coming from one or the other of the Suzuki bikes to the Versys...  :123A:

Folks here are not highly critical of the 'Stroms, we just aren't riding them.  :015:

I've had strokers, (there is no cure BTW), Kettles  S10, RSVR in the past.....but the Big V is a winner amongst them all.................mind you the RSVR was a proper tool in its day, I got rid of it before it got rid of me  :008:

No problem, Claude. My other bike is a Vulcan 900 Classic in gorgeous Candy Plasma Blue, and I love it in all its funky low-riding V-ness! The Versys 1000 is a far more sophisticated and refined motorcycle, ultimately being both safer and more capable, but the Vulcan, she's got soul and she delivers a lot of fun and satisfaction... not to mention, she's a looker who draws a lot of compliments from strangers. I'd hate to part with that bike. Some days are just Vulcan days! :152:

Finally owner of a black 2017 V1000 demo with 2658 km (1650 miles).
Very good deal and as a bonus, comes with Givi topcase, Oxford heated grips and a 12V outlet.
Very satisfied!
