I'll probably get myself a 1150 GS Adventure for my love of the air-cooled bikes and one of these as my "go to".
I love my '02 Adventure. It is a solid bike and non-servo ABS brakes work well. But liquid is frankly the shit. The simple fact that minimal internal engine clearances can be maintained easier than air/oil cooled can. This equals loads more available power from the same CC sizes.
Power rawks the motorcycle world, but I my GS is good for me. That said, my KX500 (read single cylinder liquid cooled) is an animal!
