To answer your question, my 2011 uses no oil between changes even with sustained highway running over 5000rpm.
As a remark re the difference between the KLR and the VStrom, the VStrom has much less ground clearance than the KLR. If you want to do ANY rougher stuff, ie off gravel, the KLR would be better. The VStrom is more street oriented.
