Default Which motorbike should I buy for touring; BMW or Suzuki?

I have been looking around for a second hand BMW F650GS (preferably the 800cc model released in 2008), but haven't found anything within my price range yet, as I can't afford a new one.

However, I stumbled across an alternative bike today that I hadn't considered; a Suzuki 650 VStrom. I have found a VStrom that is priced just under 4,000 on an '09 plate, with full touring luggage, taller screen, crash bars, belly pan, and a couple of little extras. This is within my price range and means I don't have to spend extra on getting it ready for touring.

So my question is... do I buy the Suzuki now? Or do I put off touring until I can afford the BMW F650 GS? Is it worth waiting to get the GS or am I just being a snob?

Any replies would be welcomed... I need some guidance on this one!

BMW forecasts clientele demand in the premium part until now propelled by high performance and luxury characteristics will soon focus much more on sustainability. Suzuki predicts the present year will furthermore be money-making and like BMW is buoyed by the promise for farther sales growth in appearing markets.
