I've had two Wees, and have generally been satisfied with the power. Never lifted a wheel, in any gear or situation, but adequate power nevertheless.
For me I guess it's just knowing there's more power out there with the Vees, with not much extra weight (new-gen, anyway), that make me lust.
But I agree that Wees have completely adequate power. My wife and I, 2-up, weigh probably 400 pounds, and the Wee does just fine. Solo, in the mornings en route to work, I come onto an uphill freeway on-ramp in either 4th or 5th gear, and just listen to the engine gain RPM, and feel it pull to freeway speed. I think I'd sort-of miss that with a Vee - where a quick twist of the throttle, probably in 3rd gear, would put me at 80ish - my default (indicated) freeway speed.
