Anything different on 2012 Vee?

All,

I currently own a Harley V-Rod and I am very interested in a Vee or Wee for commuting and longer trips (V-Strom would be added as a second bike). Both the Vee and Wee look very comfortable. As far as the 2012 models go I really like the Wee (ABS, Body Style, price, Instrument cluster). I really like the more powerful motor on the Vee but there are some downsides (no ABS, body style is the same as previous models, instrument cluster is the same). Are there any differences between the 2012 Vee and the 2009 model Vee? They look very similar to me but I am not familiar with these bikes. Thanks!

The only change is color.

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
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at https://www.stromtrooper.com/informat...-you-have.html

Thanks. Thats what I was afraid of. My only concern with the wee was power. Put with the 2012 models there are quite a few little things to push me towards the 650. Particularly towards the adventure model.

On another note, I did get a quote of 6,800 on a 2011 650 with the luggage deal. Hmmmmm...... what to do....
