    Default Life will never be same again - > The Black Hawk -> Versys 650

    Hello all,

    Today I want to share my feeling about the new love in my life.

    So many feelings and thoughts are running in my head but these are few I could write down.

    Feeling called love is when your motorcycle is twice more expensive and more powerful then your car . Its a childhood dream come true.

    Feeling called love when your wife supports your passion .

    With great powers comes new destinations.


    There was a fierce battle in my head in between 600GT and versys 650 from last 6 months. but I think the satisfaction I get by my ZMR in context to durability, trust, comfort and reliability is phenomenon , because of these criteria being the most important Versys trumped for me over GT.

    There is so much in my head to write but not able to right now.. super excited !!!

    Here I present you my precious "Black Hawk"

    Thank mate!

    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

    some history i wanted to share:

    When I was graduating I asked my parents for a motorcycle but I got a scooter as they thought motorcycle is too risky or it will spoil me somehow. . That day my love for motorcycle doubled that I will buy motorcycle one way or another. that time it was kawaski eliminator which was on my mind but I got bajaj bravo scooter .


    The day I start earning i made sure I got my first bike and it was Avenger . perfect partner it was on many himalayan trips including Leh . Then time came for ZMR and ohh boy what a machine it is... after 45K kms still going strong.. but its just the lust of power and dreams which made me go even higher .

    Initial thoughts:


    its tall feels like sitting in SUV
    Smooth ride
    little clunky gearbox
    front breaks are super awesome , press it and u feel like dropped anchor
    rear brakes not bad

    I am sooo jealous. .i will be getting the baby v within the month depending on availability

    Do share the buying experience, any test rides you took before, what other bikes than the gt you considered and any and all niggles you can come up with on the v ...along with lots of pics of course

    P.S imho the gt is way less bike than the versys though less expensive

    .. Hope u get soon....

    My buying experience was very good I got it from Noida sec 63 showroom. Guys are great there ..

    Only GT and versys was on my mind.. I test rode GT many times it always excited me but the non-abs was crucial to me. I waited for them to launch ABS but they launched only on 600i which made me very irritated and from then I got serious about Versys.

    gearbox is little clunky as it was exposed by powerdrift guys and some other reviewers , but nothing big. While riding you really feel like riding a tall SUV
    also the rpm setting needs to be little tweaked i think .. the engine stalls sometimes on stand still position.

    Will be posting soon more pics need to get registered number before big rides .

    I got my cover delivered yesterday super awesome will post pics soon.

    Cheers!!!

    I am curious about the wind protection provided by the semi-faired/faired bikes....specifically between the N650 & Versys650.
    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.
