I am considering an upgrade for my 2004 DL1000. The upgraded DL1000 has everything i want and i found a used one for a good price, but then was looking at the Tenere and see there are some low mileage bikes out there for about the same price (US bikes). They are a couple of years older, but that shouldn't matter. I am not adverse to importing a bike if i can get a better one for similar cost.
I have ridden the VStrom, but not the Tenere. I read the Tenere has some vibrations. Not sure if that is true of all model years of this bike.
The bikes have similar features with the Tenere having shaft drive VS chain.
Is the shaft drive a better option?
