Difficult to explain and impossible to categorise, the Versys is one of those machines that exceeds the sum of its parts. Its name, derived from “vertex” (Latin for pinnacle, summit, top) and “system,” hints at its development goal of offering a truly superior platform from which riders can maximise riding fun in any number of street riding situations. One ride is all it takes to confirm that the Versys does indeed deliver on its any-street promise.
