My wife isn't thrilled with her factory low 09' 650. Looking at swapping it for a new model. She was loving the updates to the G650 and would get the leg room she needs and style she wants. (really needs? ) On the other hand, after riding my 800GS she is in love with the engine, but also doesn't like the snatchy throttle. I'm afraid the twin may become too much when the going gets a little rough, she doesn't seem concerned and is a fairly experienced rider. Can any of you who have or had both please chime in with the differences in handling in terms of weight on/off road and if the trade-off with the twins weight (not much difference) is worth the smoother engine for a lady rider ? Perhaps a comparison of suspension as well. Our typical rides involve pavement to find dirt roads and see where it takes us. Some mild trail riding, not single track but more like logging roads and multi-use ATV/OHM type trails. Thanks in advance !
