A few years a go I was able to ride 1 during Kawasaki demo days and thought that if I couldn't ride my C 14 home the Versys would be a good fit, looks like it only took me 8 year to come around!!

Having owned a couple of C14 (GTR1400s) and now ride a Versys 1000 I can confirm that you have made a great choice.. don't be put off by folk saying  "but it's chain drive" because modern chains are extremely reliable and durable, and require only a limited amount of maintenance, depending on your mileage and riding conditions of course

The Versys is a much lighter bike than your C14 and IMHO more comfortable either solo or two up, so enjoy your new steed and if you have any questions then this is the place to be  :169:
