KLR versus Versys

Any thoughts on gas mileage comparision for commuting between a KLR 650 and a Versys? I know they are completely different bikes, etc. but both being 650s I am curious as to mileage.

I get 45-50 on the Versys and about 50-55 on the KLR. Totally different bikes for sure. If comuting was my intention I would go for the Versys. I bought the KLR for my urges to haul down forrest roads. The Versys will do it, but not as well. My $.02
