Welcome from Moosehead Lake, Maine, USA. Which machine you select depends, in my opinion, how old you are, what the length of your inseam is, whether you feel comfortable balancing on the balls of your feel or whether you would prefer to flat-foot, and how much weight you feel you can pick up safely if, or rather when, you bike topples over while riding alone. Oh, and how much you're willing to spend too. Whichever you select you'll be getting a very good all round performer and typical Kawasaki build quality and reliability.
My opinions are colored by the fact that I'm 73, have an artificial hip, and a very short inseam. Your mileage may vary. My Versys 650 is as tall and as heavy as I feel comfortable with these days. So far so good.
