The frame paint color on some (not all) 2011 models is silver. Some are black.

The frame paint color on 2012 models is black.

In 2011, a few came without ABS. In 2012, most came with ABS. That is a $1000 difference.

Does it have ABS? If so, it's a great deal. If not, it's still ok.

That's exactly what I did/doing. Bought a '12 for much less than MSRP and sold my DRZ to pay for farkles :-D

Nice job.... but be careful since the blinking of the turn signals can kinda get lost in the glare of headlights if they are too close.

Picking up my new Tiger XC

I am planning on a fly and ride to pick up my new XC. I have about a 400 mile return trip. I will be traveling pretty light. (no panniers or top case)

Any suggestions out there on "necessary" gear, tools , etc when picking up a new Tiger 800 xc from the dealer for a 400 mile ride home?

A. Congratulations! It should be a fun experience.
2. Gear for the expected weather conditions. Backpack or small case to carry your papers from the purchase. You should not need any tools, unless (God forbid) you get a flat.
