Man I really hate to start another 2012 thread, but what the hell. For those of you who haven't done it yet, go here,
and lay the new over the old and slowly scroll the mouse wheel.
I didn't realize how much better the new looks than the old especially from the tank forward I like the new fairing or lack of, and I like how the nose is flatter and moved rearward, maybe this will help with the turbulence. You can also see the exhaust shape and angle change, oil cooler disappear, seat and tank reshape. Pretty cool site.
