Building my first supermoto bike 10 or so years ago is what attracted me to the Versys. After a while, I missed the sumo and sold the Versys. Considered the DRZ but wanted more so am currently building the XR650R sumo I wanted 10 years ago. The Versys was great when I could only have one bike. It had a dirt bike like feel but the electric start, long range, fuel injection, better lighting and luggage capacity and was just a better bike for day to day commuting. Wish it had abs, a center stand, and a better power to weight ratio though. Now that I can have 2 bikes (at least ;-0 ) again, a new V-Strom should be joining the sumo soon.
