I'm in decent shape, but I'm 265lbs. A little more oomph would be great on a bike like this. I've sat on one, it fit wonderfully, but I'd need to ride one to be sure about the powah since I'm used to around 100hp.

Me and Kirk/Ace will sign up for a test ride at the Kawi tent at Bike Week. My review will be that it sucks because it has a piddly assed motor, Kirk's review will be that it sucks cause it isn't a Bimmer.

Actually, there is a photo of a Versys dyno pull, but it doesn't seem to make sense and it doesn't match the review text either. The graph shows a horsepower rating of less than 50, but the text that goes with it states the horsepower of 59.4 something. The review text also states that peak horsepower was 59.4. Not sure which is right, but if the dyno pull is right, the peak horsepower is under 50.

The 59.4 hp is correct. The dyno chart Fonz created for our viewing pleasure isn't. 50 is the new 60!

Oh man I was hoping that 60 was the new 50!
