This paper is devoted to study a class of systems of nonlinear Schrödinger equations: $\left\{\begin{array}{rcl} -\Delta u+u-u^{3}=\epsilon v, \\ -\Delta v+v-v^{3}=\epsilon u, \end{array}\right.$ in $\mathbb{R}^{n}$ with dimension n = 1,2,3. Our main result states that if $\mathcal{P}$ denotes a regular polytope centered at the origin of $\mathbb{R}^{n}$ such that its side is greater than the radius, then there exists a solution with one multi-bump component having bumps located near the vertices of $\xi\mathcal{P}$ , where ${\xi\sim \log(1/\varepsilon)}$ , while the other component has one negative peak.
