The bikes sold in 2013 might well be "bugier" but I doubt your going to find out and have revisions by 2014. Very few people do enough miles in a year to show design problems unless it's a huge problem. The first of the 1200s were 2004 but the first fd redesign wasn't until 2006 then 2007, 2008 and 2010 although a few of those changes were only drain plugs and stuff. Fuel pump controllers took until 2008-2009 to sort out. Basically don't expect to wait a year and get a well sorted model if even any different at all. When you think about it though there has only been a couple of show stopping common problems, although a good few niggles and one of them, the fd has never been fully sorted.
