I’ve considered both bikes as my next machine so I know a little about them (finally, a subject I know something about ). Even though they are frequently lumped together they are really quite different bikes. As SantaCruz says the Versys is setup more like a sportsbike whereas the WeeStrom is more of a long distance tourer. The Wee is also more suited for off road use than the V due to its larger wheels, though it is by no means a dirt bike. Personally I am leaning towards the V as it will be more fun on short blasts while still capable of distance touring. Look on advrider.com, plenty of detailed threads on there comparing the two (the question has been asked many times).
