Some basic questions...

When did the ABS appear along with heated grips on the Wee?

Are the color choices limited to specific years? Like White, Red and Yellow? Did the Wee come in these colors?

Thanks.

Heated grips have always been an add on option. ABS began in 2007 as a minority of Wees built for that year and became standard in 2011 in the USA. Colors and other changes are as follows.

DL650 Through the Years!
DL1000 Through the Years!

2011 Wees were black or white. 2012 models are mostly satin black with orange panels in basic or gloss black panels in Adventure models.

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

I just happened to sit down at the computer right after your post. You might have missed my afterthought.
