Used 2012 v. 2104 R1200R

Looking at two used R1200R's, both pretty fully optioned.

2102 for $8k w/12000 miles, 2nd service done by owner less timing belt. Has luggage, short screen.

2014 for $12k w/2500 miles w/no luggage, tall screen.

My question is what really changed in these two years?

Thanks!

I'm thinking that in 92 years' time the 2104 R1200R will, for starters, be electric, probably incorporating some sort of hover capability, and be able to transport you to the outer reaches of Alpha Centauri or take you vacationing on Andevian II

Re: Used 2012 v. 2104 R1200R

I've got a 2014 , and so far didn't have any issues with it .
But it only has 8000 km on it , as it is my city bike .

My advice would be , if it is the "vintage look" version , black with a white stripe , it's got spoked wheels with tube tires , and you don't want that .

Go with the ones with mags wheels .

Don't forget Gallifrei - you can see tomorrow's models today.

I'm finding you are correct. So do the 2015's come with a wet clutch? I'd assume so.
