One possible way to think about this: the 1800 euro price difference can be split into thirds. 600 you'll get back whenever you sell the bike (the '02 will always be younger and therefore worth more than the '01). The engine, shifter, and cosmetic improvements to the '02 would be worth paying 600 for. So you're really only paying 600 for the privilege of owning the '02. Given that, is it worth it?
