Versys 1000 2013 Tire choices

Hello all just joined today! I live in Canada and bought my Versys 1000 (2013) in 2014. It was a smoking deal plus I traded a zxr14r for it, which I also got a great deal on. Unfortunately I have not had the time to use it properly having only racked up 2500 kms in the past 5 years, however that will change this Summer. The tires on it are the standard Bridgestone's which are great but I am looking to go to a more trail type tire maybe an 80 20 or even a 70 30. Any input to tire choice would be great. I am not looking to save money or get limitless wear I just want a tire that works well on the asphalt and offers a bit more grip on trails than the present 95 5 type that I have on at the moment. Appreciate the input thanks and all the best!

Here's a pic of a 'sport-bike' wearing knobbies. Saw it at the D2D 2016.
