At least that continues a certain theme, if you get my drift.

At least we know where the R1200ST designer went after he was made "surplus to requirements".

The Weesys looks better in real life so will pass judgement on looks when it's in the showroom.

The more I look at it, the more I like it. Seat height at 845 mm. Wet weight at 239 kg. Might be just the ticket for me.

Weesys. That works

At least it doesn't have a beak.

I can't find anything wrong with it.

I'd love that engine in those ergos, it'll probably be smooth, I can see
it has ABS and traction control.. and it will probably be 100hp or more.
I could live with less.

Anyways, it's like they asked exactly what I'd like in a new bike.

Looks like there is no fitment for a main stand. Ah well...

woohoo!

Finally the bike that I want. Powerful enough, light enough, roomy enough(see how small the pres. japanese guy looks on it), comfy. And it won't cost much more than the 13 k Euro a "toured up" F800 GS does over here.

More choices, more competition is always a GOOD thing.

I think it looks great, and the inline 4 changes everything.

I like it. I think that it would look good parked next to my Ulysses. Course it would only be parked when it lost the coin toss.

The ninja 1000 is 130 hp. So it's going to be one of the most powerful in class, if not the most?

But I suspect this will be up over the 230kgs of the ninja 1000 as well (500ish in American)

The engine has 118 HP on the new Versys 1000. Tuned for low and midrange.

I like it, the seat looks plush, looks like it will have adequate weather protection, and 118hp is more than enough. I wonder what kind of mpg it will get?

And multiple power modes, as well, apparently...

Agreed. My first reaction was "fugly", but that picture, and this one "do" it for me!
