I'm considering the same....
I'm considering selling my 04 BMW 1150 GSA, and going for the 2014 Vee standard (a red one!) :-)
I agree with Sober Joe and others - I'd rather buy my own racks, bags, skid plate, and handguards - certainly more durable and probably about the same money. I will also want to add a center stand, crash bars, top case, aux LED lights, beefier horn and heated grips. And "maybe" a more comfy seat, but we'll see whether that's needed or not.
I'm also thinking of waiting a few months until a few people get disillusioned and buying a used one! So if anyone has made the jump to the 14 Vee, but not satisfied, let me know... :-)

I went to see mine at the shop today. Since my ankles are still about a week away from being strong enough to bring her home, I have had the dealer bolt on or apply all of the farkle that I have bought so far, for a nominal fee.
To date, I have a standard Khaki V2 with: SW Motech crash bars; SW Motech skid plate; SW Motech exhaust valve guard; SW Motech brake pump guard; Denali DM driving lights w / crash bar mounts; Suzuki center stand; Suzuki '1000' graphics package; Suzuki tank pad; Givi X308 tank bag and tank lock ring; Oxford Heaterz premium adventure grips; Barkbusters VPS hand guards; R&G aluminum radiator guard.
I cannot wait to bring Big Ethel home

Never bought crap for my bikes...
This is bike number 20, and I've never, ever bought accessories for them. I've fixed, repaired, and rebuilt, but never spent money on "fun" stuff.
Went with the Standard as it was cheaper, and since add peg lowering kit, Givi XS308 and will be buying topcase (pretty sure it will be the Shad setup), better wind screen, and crash guard. Suzuki's stuff just didn't seem to have the quality or value given the money.
Getting ready to change oil at 600 miles, really enjoying it, hoping to make it a long term proposition.
