    You can give your impression from your past experience of owning the ZMR. And also earlier you were more inclined towards the Benelli GT so weight of a bike clearly doesn't offset your touring capabilities although your height also favors the selection.



    Cheers.
    Wind protection is pretty good on versys.. with adjustable windshield you can easily put it on highest on highways and zoom pass the force of wind with ease. it really useful when it comes to your neck muscles. I have faces some serious issue while riding ZMR on long continuous journeys of over 150kms on a stretch with 600kms a day. The wind and helmet strains your muscles to limit. So i got installed secondary windshield on my ZMR which moves the air over my helmet and made my life so much easy.

    With Versys windshield things are sorted in start only

    Benelli has a small windshield but one can install after market anytime. I didn't give much importance to weight when it came to GT or versys. There were other things like ABS, reliability, better suspension and availability of after market accessories gave me enough reason for the final decision . No doubt I still love GT but my dreams are better secured with versys I guess

    Cheers

    Nice that you are getting the aux lights. ..i would very much like to get them fitted too eventually

    Did you order through the showroom? And do they do the fitting themselves? Do let me know the cost and their performance...please drop me a p.m if you can't share the numbers here

    I share the same feeling when it comes to above three lines with my N650, just that mine is not twice expensive but a little bit , and last one 'new destinations' well those are yet to happen for good.

    Congrats on your new ride, happy mile munching ahead, God bless and God speed.

    First 1000 are crucial but most boring, knowing the power of throttle with restriction of Owner's manual.

    The drive from showroom to home around 15 kms got enough attention and questions then in last 3 years ...
    and one more thing it will be first Uttar pradesh registered versys as I was told by the manager ..

    Will be updating soon about ride experiences ..


    Big congrats on your purchase ! I too was few days ago in a dilemma between 600i and 650f but ended up with a TNT 300. . Just as you righfully said in another quote. It just DOUBLES your love for motorcycle when you are made to wait for one by your parents :P

    Also I felt it makes you even more happy when you spend months with insomnia and headache thinking about what to buy and then finally buy something :P kind of builds up the excitement ALOT !


    Hope you have the most amazing travels with this beauty ! and Ride safe ! Cheers !
    Being on two wheels is being liberated. The vastness one feels being under the open sky. The whole feeling. . . cant be described.

    Ride safe, Ride long.

    Recently test rode a Ninja 650 (as versys was not available in Hyd), the gear box thoroughly spoils the overall experience. Everytime I would go from n to 1st, there was a huge "THUD" sound. Even aggressive downshifts did not feel nice (Only due to the gear box). The gear box indeed felt very clunky) The bike I got was ill maintained one as the chain was rusted.

    Also noticed significant vibration on the tank, handle bar & handlebar. Now I don't know if its specific to the particular bike i took for TR or its how the Ninja 650 motor behaves.

    The engine was a CHARM!! (Except the vibrations) ... endless torque in every RPM and band. It is one crazy monster when throttle is opened. Also It comfortable putters around the city without any complaints (NO clattering or knocking). Acceleration is phenomenal.

    Handling on the Ninja 650 too was not very confidence inspiring (it was kind of swinging on a long highspeed corner). I have know idea which setting were the suspensions at.

    Braking was good enough though ABS would have been so much better. ( Versys has one )

    The owners let me know what did you feel about your new machines. I was very interested to get the Versys 650 in future, until I took the Ninja 650 test ride.

    Also i test rode the Yamaha R3 just after Ninja 650 (back to back) and the gear box performance was so very evident ... like hell and heaven.The r3's gear box is extremely smooth and precise. Also the engine is absolutely vib free in every RPM.

    Although I am not upgrading very soon ... but still left me into a confused state.
