I just found out about these bikes when I was looking for a bike with better suspension then my honda shadow has. I have looked at the NC700x, Versys, and the V-Strom and now I am going to look into this bike. I have not ruled out any bike yet, but want to find out what people like and dislike about each bike so I am a better consumer. I know what my needs are so I can defer what is best for me even is others find a bike not a good fit for them it may be what I am looking for so please let me know what made you choose this bike and if you would again?
