Default 2010 vs 2011 vs 2012 Cross country

Thinking of buying a cross country just don't really know if they're are any major changes between these years. There is certainly a big difference in price. What significant changes are there between these years or is it basically the same bike just a different color section?

I'm not very familiar with the XC, but what I do know is this....
2010 - no ABS
2011 - revised transmission
2012 - ABS added
Maybe some XC owners will add to the list.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
2017 Spyder F3 Limited - keeps this old guy in the wind and riding with friends.

Default 2011 trans.

2011 trans is much tighter overall feel. Also no electrics for brakes, no ABS that is good or bad depending on how you look at it. I got a 2011 Cross Roads, brakes are ok, but no ABS. Never road one with the ABS so I do not miss it. ABS is suppose to be a good thing. Insurance may be cheaper on the ABS equipped bikes or more because it could cost more to repair the ABS system after an accident.

2010 has the "old" trans which means shorter oil change intervals, the gears readout on the dash even when the clutch is pulled in unlike the newer ones and the trans is more bullet proof IMO but noisier. The 2010 also has chrome switch housings for the radio and cruise, the newer ones were cheapened to black plastic.

Didn't the XR include passenger floorboards at one time instead of foot pegs?

No. The XR always had pegs.

The 2011 transmission is QUIETER than the 2010 and earlier versions. The service/oil change periods are twice as long as the pre '11 models so that will cost you less in the future (5k miles between services instead of the older 2,500 service interval). The radio & cruise controls on my 2011 have chrome housings. Then again mine is a Ness version and EVERYTHING on my bike is chrome so that may be why mine is that way if other '11s aren't.

The '11 XC is the only one with passenger floor boards, standard.
No other differences other than those previously mentioned.

2011 Victory Cross Country (for the wife and me)
2012 Victory Highball (for me!)

All XC's that I know of come with standard passenger floor boards except the Ness models. At least that's the way they were until the 2013's if they changed that on them.
