I would, however, that new front headlight and fender is a deal breaker. Have to go 511 or 449.
Not to everyone.
You're close...you should come riding. PM me if you're interested
Look, I'm not trying to get into the DR/TE debate here (different strokes for different folks), but you said that you had a problem with the bike because the tank was too small. It's basically the same size as the tanks on many other bikes in the class, AND there are aftermarket tanks available, just like for every other bike.
I guess I just don't follow your gripe.
i would buy the husaberg fe570 long before i would buy the te610
the nice thing about the dr650 is the price, then you can bolt on what ever parts make you happy.
the drz 400 suspension would be a good start and its still less money than the te610
Yet another helping of bogus info hits the interwebz
No worries, amigo. You are correct - my unwritten assumption was that the aftermarket options for the TE630 would be pretty expensive. I guess in reality that was the assumed downside - the extra money to get the extra capacity as compared to a simple gravity fed tank for the DR.
Buddy of mine went to the motorcycle show in Long Beach this weekend - says nothing has changed except the color. Same forks.
Based on a review of the California stds for 2014 (http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/offroa...erpoint 4_20 workshop presentation_final.pdf) it looks like the DR will:
A. Be a 49 state bike
B. Not be imported at all
C. Be upgraded with FI, Liquid cooling, Aluminum frame, upgraded suspension, etc.
Might be a slight increase in price.
I just bought a 2013 DR650. Is it still the same???
It's the same as the 2012, the same as the 2011, the same as the 2010, and so on.
That also means its a great bike! Enjoy it and upgrade as you feel you need to. :)
It's still the same until you mod the crap out of it, in a slightly different fashion than the rest of us.
