I traded in my DL1000/2007 for a brand new DL650/2013.
I never thought about buying a brand new bike, but since the price was good, I decided to change.
I'm enjoying the new bike, I like the ABS, the new panel (with gear indicator), the new visual is very appealing for me.
My DL1000 was not farkled (the most expensive thing was the PCV).
Unfortunately accessories are being very expensive for this new model from Suzuki, so this is something you must keep in your mind.
Anyway, as someone mentioned above you must ride and do what makes you happy, this forum will give you very different views, but in the end it is your money and you to take a decision.
In my case, yes I'm very happy, in fact today was the first good day to ride, so I could do some brake-in.
