Regardless of the seat I don't think you are going to want to two-up travel on a 650 or 800.
Suzuki makes(made) a V-strom 1000.
But coming from a wing you're gonna want the GS. Smooth and dependable. There is a great BMW network, so even if you don't have a dealer nearby parts are easy to find , info and usually a helping hand are all pretty close.
