I would be sure to go with a Gen 2+ of either. The 2012+ of the 650 or the 2014+ of the 1000. The changes from the Gen 1 to Gen 2 of the 1000 are especially significant.
I see I just duplicated information. lol
I live in nearly continuous hills and twisties and I find the 1000 a bit easier with the additional power than the 650 was. Less shifting, etc. Both are great. Passing at interstate speeds is the same deal - especially on some of the long rises.
I have a Honda PCX for camping but the Bergman is really nice.
