Did anyone buy a new 2012 DL650?

I was think about buying the new 2012 DL650. My bike is getting quite a few miles on it and I think its time for an upgrade... Has anyone gotten the new 2012 model? What do you think about it compared to the previous version? I know it's it slightly lighter and slimmed down, but anything else? Thanks in advance!

Yes, one or two people have bought one.

In summary it is better in every way possible, it makes you more intelligent & better looking, improves your sex life and starts spirited, intelligent debate over the important issues in life like 'new nicknames'. :biggrinjester:
On a serious note though, it would be worth looking through here:

It would seem a few have bought them, but they're mostly perverts.

I gotta ask what's "quite a few miles" on your current bike?

I'm assuming its a previous model DL650 from your profile?

Mine: KTM 650 ADV Katuki, 09 DL650, 08 Husky TE610, 08 WR250R
Hers: 07 Ninja 650R, 13 CRF250L
