The Versys is probably a pretty good choice, but may I suggest a FZ6. It's a great commuting tool and has enough motor to be fun in the twisties. The original R6 motor puts 99 hp out "at the crank". So it should wind up putting around 85hp to the ground. That's pretty good out of a middle weight UJM. The other suggestion would be to get a BMW F800GS- Middle weight Adventure touring without the excess weight.
