Suzuki V-Strom 650
2008 | $ 4800

Like the Versys, the V-Strom 650 mates a proven middleweight powerplant with long-travel suspension. A 19-in. front wheel makes the Wee-Strom more suitable for dirt excursions.

2007 | $6200

Belt-driven Bavarian Bahn-stormer: The ST was an uncommon BMW with its parallel-twin engine confguration, belt drive and traditional telescopic front end. But its long legs make it a strong middleweight contender.

Ducati Monster 695
2007 | $4200

Ducati’s air-cooled desmodromic middle weight Monster is alternately carnivorous or cuddly, as you require. Il Monstro Piccolo is an inexpensive entry into Desmo addiction.
