Nice pictures Atul. Versys meets your requirements very well. Wish you many more enjoyable rides.

Do you use the KTM for city ride or sold it off? Comparing Verys to KTM would be helpful as you own both of them.

You look familiar to me as I used to join rides by bangalore bikers long back. Hope to see you soon.

Thanks mate. I sold the KTM and I use the Versys in city as well. My KTM was well past the 90k kms mark, so there was a lot of work involved in the engine and lot of money would've been spent so I sold it off. If one can afford and doesn't want to use the big bike in the city, then Duke is definitely a fun machine to have!

So it's been quite sometime that I updated this thread. After a patchy 2017 in terms of riding, it's time to make 2018 count.

Been almost 6 months of the Hulk and it has seen several places and clocked almost 13k kms.

Also, me and Nandita have started a new YouTube channel where the sole aim is to capture all our rides and drives so that we can view them when we grow old



Many more to come...

A big to that Atul. Since you have Nandita joining you for every ride and since she has a very keen eye through the lens, vlogging all rides makes good sense.

One suggestion from my end is to please get her a mic, as the audio clarity is suffering currently.

Idle rpm should be 1300 when warm.

Hello Atul,

Do you have any pictures of your bike fully laden with luggage for a 3+ day trip for two people? It will be useful to see how you load up the bike and what luggage you use for two up riding for long journeys. Please do post the same at your convenience.

Thank you.

VBR (Versys Bangalore Riders) completed their 2nd Anniversary on 4th March, 2018.

On this occasion Kawasaki sponsored a breakfast ride to Mayura Hotel on Bangalore-Mangalore Highway, followed by a ride to Shettihalli Church near Hassan.

Below are some pictures from the ride:

Had to literally search for my thread as haven't updated from a very long time.

Many of you may already be knowing that me and Nandita went on a 10,000 kms ride to North East India for 26 days. The recipe is being cooked and will be served with all the details, photos and videos soon.

The NE ride was done in April and we were on hibernation for almost a month and thought of heading to Coonoor to break the monotony and get back to riding. Nandita did this ride on her Dio and I got an excellent fuel range by riding at those speeds
