Questions, 09 650 & 04 1000

Looking @ a couple of bike this weekend,
09 650 29k miles
04 1000 24k miles

Anything in particular that I should be aware of/check for with these year models ?

What's a reasonable price range?

Thanks

Go with the 650, you get ABS and a bike capable of 60 MPG. The first gen 1000's are "very" temperamental and usually need quite a bit of tweaking to make them run like they should.

I agree, except not all 09's have ABS.

A DL650 is a much more sorted out bike than a first-gen DL1000.

As far as price goes, it his hard to give you a meaningful idea of the value in your area without knowing what country and perhaps province, state or territory you are from.

2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 193,000+ km, 120,000 miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Since when don't all 09 650's and higher not have ABS?

From a different thread: In 2007 ABS was only available in grey. 2008 ABS was only available in black. Then Grey again in 2009.

I think that starting in 12 they all had ABS, not sure though.

Just found this: Suzuki doesn’t miss a year from impressing its consumers with the middleweight V-Strom model, so the bike is not only present in the 2010 lineup, but comes in three different versions: the V-Strom 650, V-Strom 650 ABS and V-Strom 650 SEA ABS Touring

I will let Greywolf add his 2 cents, but I was pretty certain all 650's were ABS since 2008.

Is it possible that in some of the countries they may have had different equipment?

I am pretty sure in Canada that ABS was an option in some of the years from 07 on. I suspect that may also be true in other countries.

I'm sure 2011 was the first year all 650s in the USA came with ABS. It was not available in orange and was optional in gray. I think that ABS only happened in 2009 for Canada, but I'm not sure.

http://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.php/topic,4772.0.html

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Could you expand on the issues that would make the first gen 1K "very" temperamental ?
