Hello. I'm new to this forum, great source of information about the wee and the vee strom! I'm currently riding a KLR 650, like the bike but found it unpowered for long run and highway travel. I'm looking at the DL650, I have tried one (2008) and liked the power, ergos and v-twin engine. I'm going to buy it new. I'm not sure about buying a leftover 2011 (proven model, no issue with it) or wait for the new 2012. I'm not sure about a first year model redesing (had bad luck with my 2008 KLR, lot's of warranty work done on it). Also dealers will surely ask more $$ for the new model. Is the new gladius based 650 twin is by far superior to the old 650? Any of you have tried the new 2012? Any comments welcome! Sorry for my english, I'm from Quebec , but i'm trying to learn!
