F800GS vs HP2-Enduro ?

I've recently fallen in love with the HP2 and would love to know how it stacks up to the F800GS. Seems it is around 386lbs with 108hp, 74ft-lb: not that much different than the specs for the F8 (little more HP but not a crazy amount). Yet all the used ones on the market, since it's not made anymore, are all stupidly expensive! Clearly I am not going to sell my loaded up F8 for a used HP2, but I would like to know about the following comparisons:

offroad ability: weight distribution, stock suspension quality, crash protection, nimble/not-nimble feel, etc
long distance touring: bigger gas tanks, racks, seats, windscreens, mpg, etc
is it a good all around bike like the f8 or is it more of a specific tool for specific jobs

Anyone ride both and care to share your experience?
I have a feeling that there are some decisions being made on certain teams lately to make things more complex in order to ensure a certain technological standard of confusion is met.
