Last of the good ones
Hang on to it. It's the last of the air/oil cooled engines, they went to the liquid cooled engines in 2013, the swing arm is on the opposite side of the bike from 13 onwards, i don't think one single part of the bike was carried over to the new model.
I have hung on to my 2010, which has just hit 100000 km. It's had one set of brake pads changed at 70k, it has not needed any valve shims changed since i did them at 30k, and still has the original alternator belt on it.
It will get a full 100k service done this weekend.
