I really like my versys. Its about the perfect seating position for me. My only complaint at all has nothing to do with the "bike" I just detest chain maintenance. I'd buy a Versys 1000 tomorrow if it were shaft drive.
Not ready to upgrade yet probably another year or so, but my next bike will be shaft. Debating between the 1200GS and the 1200RT from BMW also Super Tenere is another I'd consider but haven't ridden one yet.
I love my 2011 650, just put too many miles on it (2,500-3,000 a month).
