Howdy All, This is my first post, though I've visited the site infrequently for a few years now. I recently purchased a Ducati Scrambler Urban Enduro and prior to buying, I was trying to find posts from folks who were coming from a G650GS. Since there weren't any, and since I currently own both, I figured I would put something together in the hopes that it might be useful. I learned to ride on dirt, but this is primarily looking at the bikes on pavement, since that's where most of my riding is lately. I'm a year round commuter and love to ride. My longest (also stupidest) ride was on a 2006 G650GS was from Walla Walla, WA to Laramie, WY straight. That's all interstate mind you and far too long to be on a motorcycle. I've only ever owned stock moto's, as the farkle bug hadn't hit me. Enough about me though, on to the bikes. I'll try and brake this down into some of the essentials (for me), especially around things I didn't find in my own searches. I'm also happy to answer any questions folks might have. This is also going to be a multi post series, as I apparently have more to say than I'd thought while thinking this up. Comfort: I'm 5'5" so flat footing isn't an option on either bike. This isn't a problem, as I am comfy leaning both bikes while stopped. I will say though, the UE is definitely a tad lower, and I like that. Riding both bikes, it's pretty clear the G650 carries a lot more vibration. For general riding comfort, I'd have to give it to the UE. Both bikes are labeled for having shitty stock seats. Guess what, both bikes have shitty stock seats! That being said, a few things you should know. The G650GS seat can get wet and you can wipe it down no fuss no muss. When the UE got a bit wet, it felt spongy. I was in a rush for work that day, so I need to do some more testing to see how much water (if any) it really retains. Gas Mileage: The G650GS gets about 55-60MPG in mixed riding. It takes the cheapest fuel and eats up the road. The Urban E. on the other hand gets around 35MPG city (still in the break-in period) and they recommend using premium fuel. I haven't tried giving it the cheap stuff, and to be honest I don't think I'd want to. That being said, since it uses premium gasoline (and for other reasons,) I'm not likely to ever be taking this motorcycle around the world ah-la Long Way Round. That's all for now, more to come over the next week. Stay tuned!
