1190 adv, 2014 vs 2015, help please

A dealer is trying to sell me a 2015 telling me the that the 2014 has no electronic suspension...
Can you advise equipment differences on the two years, please?

Edit* It's basically the same bike. The R model does not have "electric suspension".

If there is an enough of a price difference go for the '14 and use the extra $$$ for upgrades/add-ons!

Look for the thread that is tracking the updates to the 2015. Across all model years the S has the electronic suspension, whereas the R does not. The 2015 has some good updates, though, but as more of them end up in inmate hands we'll see how many new and old issues are still around. Personally I'd still go for the 2015.

do not think about it..go for the 2015. I had the 2014 and now have a 2015. Simply a better bike in important ways. No brainer choice really.
You just have to choose ...will it be an S or and R variant of the 2015.
If you want to do mostly off road ..go R ..If you like carving it up on the pavement yet want to do some dirt ..go S ...

I have a 2014 1190 S with electronic suspension. On the fork caps there's a noticable bundle of wires coming out that I don't think are on the R and the non-electronic forks.

edit: the EDS was optional here as well but the models the dealer had in were all EDS.

I'm going 2014....and saving $2000+. It's a later production bike, but not sure that any of the issues would have been addressed (other than recalls, obviously).
