The Versys 1000 has a cracking engine with loads of low down grunt, a nice spread of torque and a good dollop of top end power. It’s also extremely comfortable, will eat mile after mile all day long and handles surprisingly well. Not the prettiest of bikes, mind.
This 2013 model has covered just 6,000 miles and comes with a rear hugger and luggage rack. If you're looking for a fast, comfortable mile muncher look no further.
