I only went with the 650 due to the lighter weight of the bike compared to the 1000. I use it as my daily commuter - it's easier for me to push it around a parking lot. However, if I was a bigger person (I'm 5'7" tall, 160lbs), I would have gone with the 1000 without question. "There's no replacement for displacement."
Good luck with your decision.
