looking at a near new 2015. differences from 14'-16' to 17'-19'?

hi guys,

Hope to be in the club soon..... something about this bike just has my goat


other then the few cosmetic things I can see (front fender, color, side cases) what else is different about the 14-16 to 17-19?

anything substantial? anything to look out for on the earlier ones?

Thanks in advance.

Quoting those years, it must be a 1000.
The 18-19 has cornering adjusted ABS, something in the clutch to make the pull easier and some kind of change in the injection. Narrower tank and the spoke wheel option.

yes a 1000.

ok thanks.... guess the newer ones are a better value then considering used 14-16's people seem to want a lot for around here, 90% of new.

I picked up a low k's 2014 for a lot less than new (~60%). The cornering ABS is probably better than mine but ABS and TC in the 2014 models cut out the worst of the risks. At 90% I'd also have gone new.
