 that 2018 Versys 1000  for $7500.00 less  is a great motorcycle  I M O ..
The 2019 looks to be a very nice bike  but  :760:  $7500.00 goes along way ..eh

Also if you read through the threads on the older model , you will find lotsa love for the older models .

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

@Floydsz1  =  The Dealer trade-in value of a 2005 ZRX with 140,000 km is roughly equal to it's scrap metal value, so it may well end up just sitting in my garage collecting dust.

@Ben  =  I am surprised that you mentioned that the Versys felt easier / lighter.  The specs for a stock 2018 Versys had a curb weight of 250 kg compared to the ZRX's curb weight of 247 kg.   I guess the weight distribution is different.     

Of more concern is that the 2019 Versys has a curb weight of 257 kg (  :goggle: ).  Maybe the centre-stand is made of cast iron.

My biggest concern/barrier is the cost.  I can get a brand new 2018 Versys for $16,500 ride away compared to the 2019 Versys at $24,000.  I am just not sure the electronic suspension and quick shift is worth $7,500.

I traded my also beloved ZRX1200 last year for a brand new 2018 V1K....  definitely another world. Easier, lighter. By far more comfortable. Engine is a bit different of course,  but very similar afterall.

:89:  in my post I mentioned TMF (The Missenden Flyer)... with any luck he will test one soon.

I'll be able to provide feedback about the bike once I have mine, from March 1st  albeit only on an amateur  basis    :002:

Looking forward to the video!

Welcome along Murphy, you will be amazed with the 2019 Versys, which is still very new and consequently the forum is awaiting reports and feedback from new owners.

This forum is an excellent place to be and can provide you with hours of fun and large amounts of reliable help to your questions   :002:

What is your height? Which year bike do you have? That screen actually looks good and appears to be more proportional to the bike.  So many of the taller screens look strange. I have a 2015 and am curious to see if this screen will fit the older bike.
