Fantastic to hear. Yep, the engineers at Kawasaki have done something magic with what is a parts bin and a reliable, old engine. Every few years I go on a test ride project to see if there's anything out there to convert me. I've test road most brands and equivalent bikes, from the Crosstourer to the Multistrada...and every time I've gotten back onto my V and said "you'll do me old mate".
Wait until you get the suspension set up right (perhaps even an upgraded rear shock?), the right tyres for your riding and a bit of farkling to suit your taste. And there's nothing more satisfying than out-riding bigger, 'better' bikes that have 50% more power, all the tech and latest whizz bangery. Then, when you see what someone who can really ride can do on the little V (like on our annual Versys Meet) you realise how capable it really is...it doesn't make sense how good the V is.
The closest I came to swapping out my V was when the revised Tiger 800 came out in 2015 but there was something about it that didn't quite justify the cost. Loved the extra power, smoothness and sound of that triple. It was superior in pretty much every regard...but it didn't quite seem necessary to me and didn't give me the fizz. The little V seems to be perfectly suited to our UK roads, traffic and conditions. Just enough of everything you need, without the stuff you think you want but won't really use.
