My new toy
on: June 18, 2020, 05:04:30 PM
Bought yesterday!! No time to register it so far (I'm preparing a move to my new house) but I'm really looking forward!!
It will be my second ride; Versys 1000 will remain the main one for trips, touring and two-up rides.

They are quite hard to spot as there are not much on the road; was not a big seller.
I bought it because I will have more time to ride (recently retired) and my wife is still working.

Since 1981, I only had inline 4s (Kawasakis 1000/1100) and I wanted something different. The torque of its engine is really appealing me and I think it'll be a joy to ride.

Rode about 800 km so far and I love it!!
The torque is really impressive and the handling & brakes are pretty good !
Much less comfortable than the V1 though but for short rides and commuting, it wins hands down over the K.
I think my garage contains an enjoyable pair of two wheels by now...
