You should be light on the handlebars regardless of what bike you are riding. Your core and legs should be holding your body. Sounds like you were not keeping the back of your hand in line with your forearm when riding the CBR.
Sounds like you are tensng up through the shoulders while riding the Versys.
Focus on relaxing the arms while riding. Focus on good posture. You elbows should be slightly bent and the back of your hands should be aligned with your forearms. You should have no weight on your hands except when you are pushing the bar to lean into a curve.
Until you work on your body mechanics you will find something sore from each style of bike.
