I have a 2013 650 that hasn’t been ridden much ( so it’s like new ) , but I’m starting to get back into Moto riding and took it out today and it put a smile on my face :) I had been thinking about maybe moving up to a new / different bike since I’ve had it a long time ( since new ) . Is there any difference in the new 650 model ? It appears to be almost identical to my 650 with maybe just a few cosmetic changes. That’s why I’m looking at something else .

To follow on from our discussion in the other thread - the new 650 has a trellis frame (more rigid - better handling), a slipper clutch, standard shock setup as opposed to the side mount, and ABS as standard. HP is actually down a little.

See a dealer and take one for a spin - see if it lights your fire.

Plus the weight has been massively reduced which makes handling so much better, and that new TFT dash is beautiful!!
