Unhappy Is it possible for a 2012 or 2017 model coverset to fit into the 2010 model?

Hello guys,

I am riding a white 2010 Vstrom 650 for about 4 years. Last unfateful weekend, I met with a hit and run accident.
I was on the road where there is a 2 lane straight path as well as a one way pocket to enter. The road was surprisingly quiet that day. As I was riding down that road on the fast lane, a car was about to make an illegal exit from that pocket where it decided to stop. I slowed down and judge what that car is about to do. As I was moving closer to the location where the car is, the car suddenly sped up and stop between the 2 lane. I had no time to evade and took a head on crash on the right wing of the car. After the accident, the car drove off like a little bit*h.
My wife and i sustained minor sprains and abrasion. But the bike had it worst.

Since the accident was in an another country, I am unable to claim insurance or find out who is that driver.
1. My camera apparently didnt record on that day
2. We are unable to find out the car plate number
3. There is no street camera no that street.

Damages on my 2010 650 Vstrom,
1) left fork bend
2) left side shroud broke
3) Right side shroud cracked
4) Front fender broke
5) Headlight cover left broke
6) Headlight cover right cracked
7) Head cover broke
8 ) Clutch cable snapped
9) Left Hand guard Broke
10) Gear lever broke

Items like Clutch cable, handguard and gear lever are much easier to find. Companies and supplies have stop importing the Coverset for 2011 and earlier models coverset. May i know whether am i able to fit the 2012 or 2017 coverset?

IMHO nope.....the body parts are completely different on the 2nd and 3rd gen 650's, pretty sure I saw some first gen body parts in the for sale section?
