Smile What are the proposed differences between 2018 Vee and 2016 Vee?

Just curious how much difference there will be when the new one arrives. There seems to be some good deals on the 2016 Vee and it is tempting!! Thanks!

Spoke wheel is an option on new bike.

ABS that works when cornering.

Loss of the pretty gold forks.

I guess you get the latest and greatest ECM, but maybe it is the same as the 2016.

Yellow paint.

I suppose there are some slight body style changes too, like the beak is a little more integrated, doesn't look as stuck on.

Don't forget the LRPMA, ( Low RPM Assist) Easy Start System, Conical handlebar and the Motion Track Brake System.

The newer bikes don't need a rider to function. You just pay the dealer a lot of money and the motorcycle will operate itself and send you the bill for service!
