Don’t worry about trading up man midrange and 2 extra HP was tweaked through the ecm / fueling engine internals are the same which makes sense they get to look like they made significant changes when it was just ecm tweaks. lol These bike meaning older models are held back significantly as most have seen after a ecm flash
Not just ECM tweaks. Cams changed, less lift and overlap, throttle body bore diameter changed, they don't say but guessing it's reduced.

Regarding styling I was not happy with it at first but to my surprise it has grown on me.
The old model looks really dated to me now.

yup didn’t see the throttle body change but saw the cam and air box changes will be interested in seeing peak torque and hp on a dyno

Regarding the styling, this may sound picky to some but the new led head lights would have me concerned from a safety standpoint. I sure they are better an night. But just judging from the videos of the oncoming bike that I have seen, it seems that the observer does not even see the light unless it is aimed directly at them. I am sure that being very conspicuous is safer.

I would be thinking of adding some lights to the front. I currently have an F model and I always ride during the day with my high beams on. And they are very visible to oncomming traffic.

i do t think the styling not bad at all like that they made so many changes even if it’s not big changes i mean internal components are pretty big deal not taking away from that but i also like the old styling too naked or fairing i’m riding around town and never see any badass bikes out there lots of baggers harleys mainly when i see a big dude on a super sport i laugh to myself as it looks a tad awkward I use to be that dude and love the positioning on the naked s wish we had these when i was younger

So 38% or so fared. That's more than I guessed. It seemed that when I was looking to buy a fared one years ago they were few and far between.
Note those figures are only for UK.

Here is an extended review it is the only one I have found with the Meter Visor fitted.
Shame about the tone of the voice over for the first part but it changes later. Then after around 15 mins the rest is designed to send you to sleep. ;)
