For off road, lighter is almost always better. You may want to reconsider that something bigger thinkin'. BTDT.
But then the Versys is not exactly designed for any off road except easy going stuff. I would want something with more suspension travel for anything more than gravel roads.
It all depends on your off/on road ratio and what you want. One of my favorite bikes, at least with a decent price tag, was my DIL's '09 KLX250. What a blast off road and railing CA 33 north of Ojia(Ojai(?)). Not so good for touring without a bigger tank and better seat though. Quite a few folks out running around on 250's/350's having a blast, just sayin'.
Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SteveinSunnyFlorida)
