FZ8 to FZ-09
Hey guys so I’m looking for some input from the group. I’m getting rid of my 2011 FZ8 and upgrading to the FZ09. I know the issues that plagued the 2014/15 models and then what was furthur ‘corrected’ between the 16 to 17 models, so my question to you is if you think it’s worth getting a new 2017 over a new 2016. I love the new front end appearance but have heard the new headlights really don’t make a huge difference as far as functionality. I like that the new models include some added safety features as far as ABS and TCS, the slipper clutch, new mapping, redone fork/suspension, etc. but a lot seems to be shit guys are replacing anyways…so what’re everyone’s thoughts? I don’t want to spend an extra grand or two for a new bike only to spend another couple grand to make upgrades that I would’ve done on a 2016 anyways. I can easily rationalize to myself buying the brand new model so I’d appreciate some objective advice!
