Anyone who thinks the Versys is an improved version of the Ninja is out of their mind. It's not even remotely in the same class. It's an ADVENTURE bike, tall, bulky feeling, heavy, dumbass adventure styling, etc. Left me cold. Yeah, I've read the rave reviews but it certainly isn't for me.
H2 maybe fits the bill if they cut the price and weight into the Ninja range.
Really glad I just picked up a new '18. I can live with black and it'll last me a long long time. In my looking there are lots of '19s around and now I know why they aren't being discounted.
