Re: Sv650(S&N) vs V Strom vs Versys

I'm too short for the vstrom, so I set my SFV up as close to
a vstrom as possible. I have yet to ryn into any problems
following my buddy on his vstrom!

Re: Sv650(S&N) vs V Strom vs Versys

I own all three. Can't beat the lightweight of the SV in town and can't beat the 19 inch front tire on the Vstrom on the highway. The Versys splits the difference. What are you going to be the most of?

Where you located? I actually need to sell a couple bikes............

I've got an SFV that I'm looking to set up for light touring. Unfortunately, the luggage and rack options are slim, and super expensive. How is riding 2 up on a Gladius? I don't know if I could do that for distance with me and my woman.

My longest haul was almost 600 miles in one day.
That's with the Corbin seat, and yes I was ready
to get off the thing! LOL

Re: Sv650(S&N) vs V Strom vs Versys

Oh and the top GIVI case and rack aren't too bad.
The side cases weren't too bad either, but the SW
Motech rack would not fit with the GIVI top rack.
Don't believe Revzilla on this! I fabbed up my own
side case racks for about $50.





Had to relocate the rear blinkers which wasn't too hard.

600 miles with that set up seems a little long lol. I want to get Givi cases all the way around, but I also want to put on a targa delete kit. The Givi PLX rack bolts to the stock fender. I may be SOL on the combo. The Suck-Wealth motech racks look awesome and would probably work with fender delete kit, but that is super expensive. Then id still have to buy cases. I may try taking a stab a ghetto-fabbing my own rack. I probably could at least break even with the cost of a new rack with some good tools left over.

Re: Sv650(S&N) vs V Strom vs Versys

I am sorry, if state to state riding is more than once a year then do yourself a favor and stick with the Vstrom, it is made for this. It will be very fun still. I honestly can do canyon carving almost as fast on a Vstrom as on a SV. The Sv does look sexyer but the Vstrom is a great bike
