Question Model year differences chart?

I'm considering getting another Wee (I've had 2 in the past) and am curious if there is a chart of recent model year differences?

My last 650 was a 2008. I'd like ABS and traction control

I've been looking for the same info, and found a lot here on this forum, and on Wikipedia. I'm not able to post URL's yet, but it looks something like this:

"en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_V-Strom_650"

There's not a lot of info there on the 2017, but I believe that's the year traction control was added.

ABS was an option from 2007, ABS to all models 2011, traction control introduced 2017.
Incremental improvements over the years with big jumps in 2012 and 2017.

Perfect - I knew they had added ABS awhile ago but couldn't find a date for the traction control!

Thanks!

Are we talking 650 or 1000? Suzuki introduced 3 mode traction control to the V1000 in 2015.
