    I'm not sure that there's much difference other than the name and colour scheme, but haven't looked at it in great detail yet.

    A few tweaks but doesn’t look like a massive change.

    Looks like a newer iteration of the DVT, lighter engine (-4.4lbs) and a new clutch pack and trans improvements that should help with the false neutral issues. I like that they retained the front trellis. Electronics package looks the same as before for the S model, I'd hoped they'd get the new infotainment but looks like it's more or less the same bike, though this stood out: oil change every 9,300 Miles . Not bad for a $300 price bump

    Here's a decent summary of the changes...



    Revised clutch - better shifting
    Reduced seat height and reshaped seat
    Repositioned footpegs for better comfort
    Lower weight - engine modifications and new clutch/wheels etc
    Emergency brake light
    New colours
    New prices (add about £500 in UK)

    Apparently there was a weight reduction on the wheels as well, although they don't specify by how much (like they did in every other piece - so I imagine it wasn't much).

    To me the most significant changes are:
    - weight reduction
    - new seat design, flatter
    - footpeg changes

    I see this as an update to the existing model, not a full remodeling like on the 1200/1260 in (2014-2015 and 2017-2018)

    clearly nothing that's worth an upgrade , with comfort seat you get an extra 20mm from the pegs , other such as weight reduction probably no one will notice , and i don't have an issue with the gearing.
    in fact i dont have any compliance for the 950s (except auto sag for front and rear, but that's a one time setup)

    I'm very happy with my new 950S, which has only 2200 miles since the end of July. The only thing I may wish to change would be the repositioned footpegs to create more legroom between seat and pegs without raising seat height.

    Other than that the bike is great, although it's about time the dealer delivered the missing parts of the touring pack!

    @Bear maybe you want to take a look at this  https://www.rizoma.com/en/pe715.html?moto=11030&pm=true  , i think they can give you 20mm from stock and its not a full rearset , not sure if you need extra parts like pegs or you can use the existing ones.

    Thanks for the link. I can't say the legroom is a massive issue for me. I had a couple of consecutive 6 hour riding days last week without any leg complaints so it can't be that bad.  :008:

    6'1" here, from what I've seen it appears the pegs are lowered by 10mm on the V2/S, but so is the seat so they basically lowered the rider on the bike, while keeping the legroom the same. I sat on a 950 and legroom wasn't great, if I buy I would definitely go for the tallest seat and remove the rubbers on the pegs. Also read somewhere that pegs were just lowered, but the sales guy at the dealer said they were also pushed forward a bit. They expect to have the bike in the showroom by december, so I guess I'll find out then if ergos are good for me. Even the seat on the 950 had quite a bad slope (for me and my leg length).
