Vstrom headlights were changed in 2017?

I had no idea that Suzuki changed the headlight design....apparently in 2017? I searched pics on Yahoo and found some with the beak and skinny headlight that said 2015? Is that possible?? I guess I've always seen sideview pics.

Edit: So the Vee 1k got that skinny light in 2014? That was part of my confusion. Jeez, where have I been??

yes. Kawi switched the Versys to dual lights like the older Stroms, now Suzuki switches from the dual to the stacked, like the older Versys? Weird.....

thanks all. I almost always buy used bikes (garage queens), so don't really pay close attention to new models until they're a few years old and in my sights as a potential buy . Gotta admit, that headlight was a shocker! I'm not lovin' it.
