I didnt see it mentioned so I figured I would point out a couple things for ya:

The Vstrom has the sv650 motor, slightly retuned for more midrange, but essentially, the same numbers.

The Versys has the 650r motor, again, slightly retuned.

Both of those bikes are on the taller side, and may be intimidating for new riders who need to be able to slap down both feet, flat. On the other hand, they do give a very commanding view of traffic.

It should be noted: I only post after drinking. The result is long-windedness, digression, occasional leaps in logic, and grammatical errors.
