this will be hard to figure out specially that it will be rare to find an owner for a 14 and a 16 hehe. unless he's a salesperson or obsessed with the brand
Thanks

I figure the differences would be:

Heavier fly wheel like Adventure

Key less ignition

ABS Pro

Hill holder

Shift assist.

I would guess that the biggest change is a heavier flywheel. The rest will be mainly cosmetic.

ABS Pro is far from a cosmetic feature. It is a great safety feature that might just save your life if things go bad mid corner.

Not sure what a hill holder is?

Now the true cosmetic feature is that each year comes in different colours 😀

I compare 2014GS to 2015 and 2016 like everyone else said only major factory difference was 2015 and up was. Heavy fly wheel and few options like Gear shift asst, Keyless Start. I got great deal on 2014 demo bike with 1900 miles with every factory option available. Savings for demo vs new, demo bike was no brainer. Good luck to you

I'm not positive it's on GS, but on 2016 RT when you put on the brakes at a stop, it keeps the brakes engaged without having to hold the lever. Otherwise if you're on a hill, you don't have to juggle brakes, clutch and throttle when you take off.
