In short, depending on WHAT YOU WANT TO DO WITH IT, it may just be a heavy, poorly suspended bucket of shit.
Is that clear enough for you now? Do I need to break it on down some more?
If you were going to drop the coin on the F800GSA and get a bike that weighs as much as the 1200, but performs just like a 650 I think you'd be pretty disappointed.
I know I was. But clearly you GET IT, or you have a much lower expectation level.
They don't perform like a 650.. the twin doesn't feel like your riding a washing machine down the freeway, more like a bum massager..
Honestly though, the suspension is better than the G650 and has more upgrades available to make it great! Plus the power difference is heaps 31hp makes a difference.. ;)
still though, its short of 150hp ahem "KTM 1190 which weighs the same" cough.. lol
