Versys 1000 - General Chat / Re: MK2 headlights
« Last post by DeuceBG on Today at 10:38:59 AM »
I'm running the Skene Set-up with Philips LumiLed Bulbs on my 2015.
I run the Main at 40% iirc and I don't seem to annoy oncoming Road Users greatly.
The other thing to know though is that the Main Beam Warning Light will be on all the time but slightly less bright when running on Dip.
There is a way around this issue by means of a strategically place Diode but that little gem of info wasn't available when mine were fitted so it didn't get done.

What Sonny wrote is right but in my opinion on a dark street at night the oem lights of the Mk2 are not that bad. Are worse.
The only effective solution to see are the foglights.

Do these six models include models until 2018?

These are 2019 models

Thanks for the write up Rog. Wow! I didn't realise there were so many variants of the model available. Unfortunately I cannot go to the bike show this time around - I can see a visit to my Kawa dealership coming up real soon.
Just out of interest, what were the features on the top of the range bike that you could ' live without' or that are less important to you and your riding? Just curious...........Thanks :187:

I could probably manage without quick shifter and also cornering lights, plus I don't know what I think about self healing paint, which has been used around the tank and rear panel areas :002:

I  visited the NEC show yesterday and had chance to view the new Versys 1000 range, there are 6 models in total
Versys 1000
Versys 1000 SE
Versys 1000 Tourer
Versys 1000 SE Tourer
Versys Grand Tourer
Versys SE Grand Tourer
Prices range from 11,199.00 to 15,899.00 you should add an extra cost of 350.00  to increase the standard two year warranty up to four years

I was impressed with the new bike, there are some features on the top of the range bike that I personally could 'live without' or that are less important to me and my riding

When viewing other bikes from other manufacturers it does seem that Kawasaki are pretty much in line with the rest, there are exceptions of course, some less expensive and others more expensive, for example a Triumph Adventure bike of some specification was 14,200.00 which seemed costly  :exclamation: 

I looked at just about everything that was of interest to me and enjoyed the day which started with me leaving home at 8.00 am and concluded when I got back at 11.00 pm last night.... somewhat knackered, but pleased with my day out.

So.... will I change my bike  :question:   and if so what for  :question:  well we and you will have to wait and see  :001:

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Re: Broken indicators
« Last post by TYKE on Today at 09:26:53 AM »

I noticed the new model has a new design of indicators to go with the new LEDs / seemed a lot more robust when I tested them out at the NEC at the weekend!  Maybe I could use that as an argument when I enter negotiations with my budget holder (wife)! 😜😜 :2: :2:

Yes, I noticed the sturdier design when I looked at them at the show yesterday 

I'm not sure that that this fact on its own will persuade your financier  :008:
