Can you post the dyno charts to see the differences in power delivery between the stock and 2 Brothers exhaust?

Does that unit have varying amounts of sound dampening? When I test rode mine, it had a 2 Brothers muffler on it, and it was obnoxious.

Makes you want to ride

William T., those vids makes me want to find some twisties and go ride! You have some great roads over there for sure. I live in cruiser territory, but at least we get to ride most all the year!

Are you going to Daytona?

I am not planning on going to Daytona. The Versys is just so much fun. It loves the curves. I do not want people to think that I am bragging on this bike just because I own one. If I did not like it I would tell all of you the truth. I have owned so many different kinds of bikes in my life and this is the first bike that I have owned that just makes me grin to even think about riding it. I have been in love with a lot of bikes but not like this one. Even the people I ride with say they can tell just how happy I am. They are susprised that I have not changed everything on it yet. It just does not need anything. After owning my last Kawasaki I said I would never buy another one but I could not resist the Versys. Kawasaki did a great job with this bike and I am so dam happy with the finished product.

I went to the dealership today to get a helmet and to sit on a DR650, thinking I was going to be buying one in a few weeks.

Then I found a nicer seat.



The salesman told me something I haven't heard before and cannot confirm on the Kawasaki web site. He says they are now also available in green, and he has already sold one that color. Can anyone here confirm that they are available in green?

Maybe he was mistaken.

Yes, on the second day I rode it, I did ~500 miles. I'm sure you didn't think it wasn't capable of doing it, so what exactly did you want to know?

Most bikes are capable. I was just wondering how comfortable the ride was on a long day. Wind, buffeting gets to you after a few tanks. Why do you think all the geezers ride wings
