That's right... Being taller may give Versys more room to lean, but more lean is required to overcome its higher COG, so also increased lean transitions when changing direction. The higher COG also results in higher levels of weight shifting, and extra leverage and upsetting effects on balance and suspension, grip, etc.
It helps to be aware that you always control your direction be means of countersteer. The more you try to turn your handlebars to point your front wheel to the right, the more you'll lean to the left and turn left.
