'07 650r Stolen/recovered
One of the Ugliest IMO, but to each their own.
Same motor and LOTS of shared parts with the Ninja 650r.
So, reliable, good mileage... will be "buzzy" and vibrate a lot. Cheap to maintain.
I describe it as having the feeling of an old 4wheeler transmission. It clunks into gear and is rough and notchy feeling. I've got 37k miles on my 650r without any issues (knock on wood).
I'm not sure what the benefit of a versys is over a Ninja. Maybe more comfy seat, slightly longer suspension travel (Ninja guys use a Versys shock to get a slight lift in the rear for sharper handling).
