Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Versys 1000 LT SE
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
This is an asphalt-friendly adventure bike, with big inline-four engine and 17-inch wheels, hard plastic bags, traction control and engine management modes. But as this is the SE version, you also get electronically-controlled suspension (the KECS system), a quickshifter, LED cornering lights, and a TFT dashboard with Bluetooth connectivity. All this gadgetry does drive the price up considerably over the standard model, though.
