Power disappointment, rode today for first time (had another damn back surgery so been down) this thing is dog slow in any mode for a 20k otd bike (not what I paid) choose a dL or storm instead, even my Africa twin could eat this thing. It has a lot of techy stuff with power modes and I’ve tried it all, my ninja 650 would eat this for lunch, just didn’t want someone else to make a 20k mistake on this turd.  I won’t even sell it on here!

Wow, what a bummer. The reviews have been pretty good.

Isn't the Kowi Versys designed to be a sport touring bike? 

The 2019 Ducati Multistrada 1260 Enduro Pro might be a great new option for you...it should eat your 650 Ninja for breakfast, lunch, dinner, along with a midnight snack... pretty effortlessly. 😉

I bought this bike for some serious highway miles this year and may still use it, I couldn’t find one to ride since it’s totally new for 19 and there just isn’t that many out there (the deluxe model) I read all the reviews I could find on it and they were all positive but today I dug deeper into the web and found some more accurate reviews hiding that express the same disappointment I’m having. I’m glad I didn’t pay dealer price for it! I think the super ten and the strom are hard to beat in this category.

SoCalMule is speaking my language.  That is a bitchin' and beast of a motorcycle, especially if you are doing a 80 road/20 off-road use.
