2007 Wee or 2010 Wee

Hi All

New to this forum and can't wait to get my first Wee.
Need help deciding though between two that I have found.

The first one is a 2007 Wee, with 5,000 kms on the clock, comes with Givi top box, hand guards and belly pan. Going for South African Rands R49,000-00 or about US $ 4,900-00.

The second one is a 2010 Wee, with 60,000 kms on the clock, comes with Givi top box and panniers and Oxford hot grips. Going for South African Rands R37,000-00 or about US $ 3,700-00.

Both are in great condition. Which one would you guys choose?
Cheers

Opinion

I think there have been some minor improvements between 07 and 10, not sure but I'd rather pay $3,700 for the newer higher but not particularly high mileage bike than $4,900 for the older bike. Pretty close though. If it helps any, about 4 months ago, I paid $5,200 for an '09' with 11,500 miles on it, top box, heated grips, center stand, radiator and oil cooler guards, soft-luggage guard rail on left side. Bike in great shape. I don't think I got a particularly good deal but didn't get screwed either. I got the bike I wanted and it was close by so it didn't cost me significantly going to look at it or pick it up.

Good luck and welcome to Stromdom.
