Revised Versys 1000 gets cruise control for 2019
« on: November 07, 2018, 05:49:01 AM »
I know there are no plans for any further updates to the SX for 2019 as the latest model/colours are already at dealers but I wonder if we'll see cruise control for 2020?
Incidentally the new Versys looks like a great package, depending on the price hike of course.

The issue with cruise control is that the bike fueling and throttle characteristics would change, as it would need to be ride by wire:006:

The article I just read says it is ride by wire. Led. Lights revised instrument cluster electronically adjustable suspension etc etc

It also says it 5k more dollars in USA than the standard 1000 versys!

WOW.  So even a conservative estimate would be £4000 over here.  That puts it over and above the top of the line Tiger 800 XRT (it's closest competitor) and into the shaft driven Tiger 1200/BMW R1250 GS price bracket....

Along with the slipper clutch, quikshifter, riding modes, self healing paint. heated grips, power outlet makes it a great package "price dependant"

Self healing paint?? Why can't they just put normal paint and drop the price!

From 2017 SX has TBW - so the next step they have to put CC - that is the last thing which i missed on my bike.

As far as I`ve information that 2018 version has TBW and 2017 has only diffrent colors. Are You sure that there is cable control? Becouse that`s why I can`t install MCCruise control.
