The Versys has a lower compression ratio and different mapping in the computer than the Ninja. FFT when making a decision...You might can use a lower grade of fuel, and get a better, more usable mid-range...

But if I was going this rout, I'm sorry but I'd have to give the power nod to the Ninja engine.

I'd have to disagree, depending on what you are looking for.
I would rather a lower compression and lower geared bike.. Yet one that can do 70/80 all day long as well as put the power to the ground as the bike does now.. Controllable power
