I just can't see taking the Versys off-road much... I could take my KLR across a hay field full-tilt and she was smooth as glass (Racetech up front and Moab in the rear). I think that same run would make my Versys very unhappy.. of course I'll never find out because the street oriented tires would also be very unhappy. I could see low speed two-track, gravel, even shallow water crossing, buy the peg-to-seat is too short to stand for long, and there is not much clearance for getting over rocks, ruts, roots, etc.
I know you can take a Versys off-road... just don't think its something you will enjoy doing. I think taking the Versys off-road is like taking the KLR on the Interstate.... it'll work, but when you get there, you'll know it's not really where she wants to be.
