Can't tell you anything about the price. Haven't been shopping for a bike, plus I don't know where you are.
It sounds like you are sticking to pavement. Your list of rides are all better handling bikes on pavement, not that the DL's don't handle but they have more suspension, so they sit higher and the weight is higher on them. For me, I like the upright ride, not wanting to lean over the tank anymore. The beauty of my storm is I can take it off road. Granted I don't take it full dirt riding, just to big and heavy for me but if I run across that dirt road leading off somewhere?
I ride a 650 and it does everything I want it to do. Always riding single, two up? I understand the 1Ks have more low end pulling and just more power but the 650's get better mileage as well as cheaper priced. As far as a 60 mile commute? Either bike will be fine. I ride my Wee on 500 miles days sometimes.
So you rode both and you have a feel for them. What do you think of them and what kind of riding will you be doing?
