From what I had read/heard, the chassis is the same, the better handling is due to a little more fork oil, revised fork springs and better tires. If that's the case, you should be able to upgrade the older bikes. The other big change is a revised fairing for better heat control.

I bought a '12 and haven't ridden the earlier model, just passing on what I saw when doing pre-purchase research.
