New guy here!

I'm looking at the RSV4 because it has a frame size similar to the 600 super sports and the overall size seems to fit my body better then some other makes. When I shop online, I see some pretty good prices on new "old stock" 2010's and wonder what I would be missing if don't get a 2011. With the current model year almost up, does 2012 offer anything work waiting for?

What does the factory model offer over standard. Reading the specs isn't terribly illuminating. ;)

I have tried the BMW, Ducati 848 and, the Ninja 10R but they stretch me out too much. The BMW is tempting though because it is pretty close and could probably be tweaked with a new set of clip on bars but, that wouldn't slim it down any which brings me back to the RSV4.
