i looked at the nt, the versys and the dl650 when i was getting my next bike.
i had a klr650 and my commute changed from 20 miles of back roads to 30 miles of super slab. the klr was ok but i wanted something more roadie.
i thought i would love the nt but the buzzy bars and almost lack of being able to change grear ratios were stumbling blocks. i went with the dl650 and have put in a 16t front sprocket and it has been a very good comuter. i can get 60mpg if i take my time, mostly i get 56mpg. the chain has 26xxx miles on it and still looks good with alot of adjustment room still.
