Talking F800GS vs XL700 vs DL650

Anyone know if these bikes have been compared by magazines or websites i've been searching around here but can't find any decent head to head comparisons

there's a small review of the XLV 700 Honda Translap, Yamaha Tenere XTZ660, R1200GSA, Triumph Stelvio, Benelli Trek, etc in the November edition of Cycleworld, but no DL650 or F800GS. sad... was looking for this comparison too..

any one any idea?

UK magazine "Two Wheels Only" tested and compared XL700V Transalp, XT660Z Ténéré and F800GS. Conclusion:

"At the end of the day, we have three very different motorcycles suitable for riders with different needs... The Honda will belong to ladies, pensioners, dispatch riders and will disappoint few of its riders. It wont affect the pulse but will deliver you to your destination in comfort.

The GS is a bloody gem of a bike. It was the one bike that each rider had to be prised off... The F800GS is a truly exceptional motorcycle, and one that's certain to get more people on to bikes like this."

Sure, September 2008. The article is called "Short Way Round", pages 42 to 49.
