Vstrom 2014 are compatible with 2015 model ?

Hello,

I'll receive a brand new Vstrom DL650 2015 in a few days and I need to buy accessories (central stand, engine crash bar and engine bottom).

I can't find if accessories for Vstrom 2014 are compatible with the 2015 Vstrom. Someone knows ?

Wasn't aware that the 2015 model was available yet.

Can you provide a link online to it?

Lighten up, Francis. If you can't take some sarcasm, an Internet forum is the last place you should be.

There may be some confusion between model year and registration year. 2015 model year bikes have not been released yet. Accessory fit is not a problem.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Well, well sorry for the confusion.

After checking at the main office of Suzuki in Israel.
I'm getting a K15 which is like the 2014 model only colour changes.

So now I know that 2014 Accessories are compatible with my bike.

It's not a K15. Suzuki uses L4 for the 2014 model year and L5 for the 2015 model year. The 2009 K9 was the last of the K series. Somebody gave you bad information.

I don't know about the fine details of Suzuki or Israel,
But the way model years in the USA work, is sometimes different then model years in other countries or destinations.

This is due mostly to the EPA and other government regulations, like how our V.I.N.s work, for the vehicle.

Some destinations do not describe the bikes by a 12 month calender year,
but rather by changes to the bike.
