It's a cool toy, but it'd have my interest if they gave it 1 inch more travel. I'd rather use something like that as an adventure tour bike rather than a long legged sport-tour bike.

I prefer the Wee Strom's motor, but also like the Versys chassis. Hmm...

A clear decision IMO. If you're itching to tackle more than the mildest dirt roads, get the Wee. If you're more inclined to chase twisty paved roads, the Vs is the clear winner.

Ever ridden a recent 450 MXer? I just spent some time trail riding with some friends and rode a Yamaha YZ426, a Husky 450 XC and a WR450. The YZ hit hard and was generally insane, the WR only slightly less so. Loved the Husky. It has lots of stout but usable tractable power. What a fantastic serious trail ride the Husky is.

The other bikes were a kick in the pants, but I fell in love with the Husky. The realization that it is possible to have too much power set in. I guess I am getting old. Time to forget about modding my long suffring DRZ400 any further. I need that Husky
