Actually, although registration says it's a 2012, the VIN corresponds to a 2013, that explains!
No, I don't think this is correct. The 10th digit or character (when counted from the left; sorry, I don't mean to insult, but I used to work with VINS everyday and would have to explain this to techs regularly) shall determine the model year. This is a world wide standard.
If your Bonnie is a 2013, then the tenth digit is a D. 2012 = C. The eleventh digit or character, denoting the plant of manufacture, is a T (Thailand).
Hello, no insult taken but you made me doubt, I just went and checked on the bike itself. The 10th digit is a G, I don't know what it means but that's certainly not the year. The 11th digit is a D.
I seem to remember seeing this discussed somewhere already, perhaps on this forum.
