Not much new to add beyond what invader and Wordguy have said, but I can echo their testimonials.
I specifically bought the V because of the improved comfort and power over my workhorse KLR. It is as good as any bike on the interstate. Certainly not the screaming power of a full-on sportbike, but you will never find yourself lacking power to accelerate, pass, or whatever. I've never reached the limit on her.
I took a road trip with a friend once who was driving his Connie, so I have a bit of a comparison. I would think that the Versys, with a proper windscreen and one of the many approaches to seat modification, would be much more comfortable than the Connie over the long haul. The sitting position is more upright and provides more opportunity to reposition. Many of us have fitted crash bars with highway pegs that further help out.
