2009 Kawasaki Versys from United States of America
I think there are better choices out there
I got this to replace a Buell Ulysses 2008 model, which I sold because the offer was too good to pass up!!
I was very disappointed in the handling and braking on the Versys; the brakes just felt wooden (no feel) and the suspension was not very adjustable; it has adjustments front and rear, but the front forks are only adjustable on one leg; a strange setup.
The motor was tuned more towards the low end, and did not seem to have much on the top end. I thought with the four valves per cylinder head, it would have more.
Maybe it was not as bad as I think, but after riding the Buell, the Versys just did not come close to the handling or the brakes I was used to.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
