I have a 2007 KLR & was kinda interested in a Versys because 99% of my riding is street which sometimes includes freeway. The Versys seems better suited for this then the KLR. Since I live in California I have not seen a Versys in person yet. Supposedly the 2009's will arrive in Calfornia in October 2008. My main question are the Versys' foot pegs a little rear set kinda sportbikish or more like the KLR straight down. I do like the KLR upright seat position.
