Take seat height measurements with a grain of salt. You've really got to sit on one (and preferably ride it, too)to see if it'll be OK for you. Obviously, rear shocks and seats sag when you sit on them, and preload affects it a little bit, too, so a published difference of 1" may end up being either quite a bit more or less than you're used to. As for top-heaviness, to me, the Versys' CG feels very low, but I'm coming off many years of riding inline 4s, which are top-heavy by design.
