Have been riding m/c s for a long time. Owned many types. My question is there any advantage buying a 2019 650 V-Strom over a new in stock 2018 ? Bells/ whistles, upgrades, I do my own maint. And repairs. I won’t be crossing the county. I will need to make several 200 mile trips per yr. , ( interstate some, state roads) and general exploration mostly paved back roads when possible. Being old, now longer need big heavy bike(s) or 1000cc, so looks like one of the DL650s would be ideal.
