I found the perfect bike... i think.



i'm almost sure this would be the best bike ever. All the qualities of our beloved vee, with a real front-end and no useless oversized front wheel, no cardboard forks, no undersized pocketbike brakes...

or maybe this is nothing but the new 1000?

It needs a beak!

Actually, I would want a front fender that wraps down to keep any debris from being thrown into the engine/radiator.

I like the 19" front wheel. I think it is supremely useful for riding on rough pavement, potholes, gravel roads, surmounting obstacles, and such. A major failing of the Versys as a dual sport is the 17" wheel, IMO.

but far too expensive
