The older model is a completely different bike - parts not like to interchange, but it is a very solid, well made bike and should last just about forever with basic maintence. Most were kick-start which can be a bother at times. I don't see any great reason to avoid the older model, esp at its pricepoint. Its not like you can't sell it and buy a newer one later if you feel the need.

good luck
