Well the Zuma has been gone for a couple of weeks now. At this point I have not really missed it. I do miss its automatic transmission though.
One thing that I learned from riding the Zuma is that for me the ride is the most enjoyable thing. Not the act of riding. I don't get a lot of satisfaction from shifting through the gears like some people do.
I enjoy accelerating and leaning but doing it with an automatic is enough for me.
So what does this mean. Well nothing right now since I am really enjoying my Versys. It is an incredible machine. But in a few years when it is time for something new then an automatic of some sort will be a high priority.
