Nope, a DR650 is nothing like it, not even close.
I'm 54 this year, 5-10, 175. Bike fits perfectly with peg lowering kit from speedys.
The bike feels very light and agile, and are known to be easy to ride. Suspension is fine in soft mode, crank preload and damping for a passenger or cargo, or slightly firmer for canyon carving.
Find an owner in your area and ride one, not another brand and style of bike to compare. The versys is a street bike, a DR is a heavy dualsport. If you were looking for a KLR then maybe that would be more comparable.
If your inseam is under 30" you may want a lower seat or lowering kit. Otherwise it's fine. Shoulder position and seating is a non-issue. The stock seat needs to be re-worked to sit more comfortably, it slopes a bit into the tank and will drive you into it over a ride, plus it's not contoured to your butt so it sits hard.
These are all easy fixes to make the bike fit personally. Unless you are extremely aggressive or ride 2-up a lot you'll probably like the bike.
In your first post I pictured you an aggressive 35 year old that tours. That's why I said Tiger.
