Question Deciding on Versys ('15-'19). Any upgrades on Gen3?

Hi! Iím on my first year of riding, currently own a Z300, done a 5000+ km trip to Austria, really enjoyed it, but would like to share the riding pleasures with my wife, so thinking of buying a V650.

Does anyone know what upgrades there were since Gen3 introduction? I think in '17 a gear indicator was added and subframe was upgraded to handle more weight, but were there any other upgrades apart from colors?

Would really appreciate your help here.

just do it. can not go wrong

if I'm answering your question I assume the basic points have been addressed, such as: did you do a compression test? is it still on fire?

More rubber-mounting in the engine mounts; a trip computor; and BETTER suspension front and rear.
