Marriott Motorcycles, been a customer for years and always had first class dealings with them. Very happy with the way things went and the outcome.
New bikes collected now and feels so much better & confidence in the bike & my riding has fully returned.  :001:

Plus got Friday off work so will be out & about somewhere!

Thereís a couple of 2021 Versys on eBay with less than 500 on the clock so I imagine itís common . When I bought my Versys after being off bikes for quite a number of years I still wasnít 100% after nearly a year but I did a couple of long runs after lock down and love it now although I am looking into a newer model later this year

Definately happier with a 650, large cc just not for me.
Thatís part of the appeal of the Versys, big enough to get you in & out of trouble and great mpg & tank range to get lost and not be paranoid about fuel.

I know what you mean.
Too many CC is just wasteful and unnecessary.

Great idea!
I shall keep it in mind for later but I am currently enjoying the wasteful excess of CCs.
