Hi all, I haven't been on here for a while because I got rid of my K9 as I couldn't get on with the snatchy throttle, I had a Tiger 1050 up until recentley but sold it and purchased a 2012 DL650 AL2 (that's what they call it in the uK) and what a great bike it is, smoother quicker more refined with better handling. It's the bike I wanted the K9 to be.

A means with ABS. L means its model year is within the 2010-2019 decade and 2 specifies the year within that decade. The convention is the same in all countries. My 2007 with ABS is a DL650AK7 for example. My 2005 before ABS was a DL650K5.

The model is a 2012 DL650A L2. L2 isn't included in the name any more than 2012 is. It's DL650A if leaving the year off. The SE is for Special Edition in Canada, meaning it includes luggage.
