Compact inline twin, 650cc, 6 speed, FI, 55-65mpg, 63HP/45ft-lbs, readily available for less than $1k even here in Europe. Now I just have to figure out if this thing will fit, especially since it's left hand output.
On the other hand, you may consider getting an ER6 (naked version of versys with 5+hp), replace forks, swingarm and shock, transfer the exhaust from under the engine to the side for better ground clearance, lighten it here and there and you will end up with a sub 200kgr fully fuelled bike. The versys is 205 fully fuelled.

Of course this is the 'daddy' of this kind of machine....
