My experience, having ridden them both.....the Versys, in stock form, is sharper handling on the street, if you really like to push it hard in the twistys.
The Wee is overall, seating, legroom, and wind protection, quite a bit better than the Versys.
The Wee engine is more refined, and not buzzy like the Versys.
If I was looking for a bike to do some track daze, mostly shorter rides, and just for fun, I would consider the Versys.
If I wanted a bike for all round comfort, amenities, and some touring, the Wee would be my choice.
I have upgraded the suspension in my Wee, where it will easily out-handle a Versys, and has day after day comfort, so to me, it's the perfect balance.
I could not upgrade/mod the Versys in a way to give me the same level of comfort and amenities as the Wee, for any price.
This has been discussed SO many times around here and other forums, might wanna do a search while you're at it. While I agree with others, who suggest riding each,
I also know for fact, that a "test ride" is short, and will not give you a true indication as to what a bike will be like after a 4-8hr ride......for me, this was huge.
FYI - I ride 100% street, somewhat spirited, so my opinions are based from that perspective, no off-road, almost no 2-up.
Lastly, FWIW, no ABS braking on Versys......if you ever had a chance to use it, it's a real game changer, I'm sold on it's merits for the street.
