Well, we will see, I will be riding it off road for a bit with the stock wheels...I will be getting the laced wheels anyways because I want quick swap wheels for blacktop and off road.

Maybe not, but I will because of the rubber on the 17" pair.

Yes it probabilly will slow the steering down but the V is so quick anyway. I am planing to run 17" for pavement and 19" off pavement.

Hope this helps.
Actually, I plan on riding on pavement only, but don't like the stock sport bike tires the Versys comes with. What would it cost me to have 19" wheels put on front & back? I can put 19" [road] tires on front & back, right? I like the look, feel & ride of a trail/Enduro type [tall, thin tires] bike much, much better than that of a sport bike. The roads I ride are bumpy, but are still paved.
