2009 or 2012 as new bike

Recommended Posts

Anuyone have advice on a new bike purchase? Dig the 450s, deciding between a new 2012 at $8K or a new 2009 at $6K. Is there a big difference between these models. Sold my street bike, looking forward to the trails. FIrst moto.

if this is your first moto I'd look fo a used one. There are quite a few out there.

Here is one dressed in Elsinore trim with 40 hours on it for $5K.

You might offer $500 less. Tax and lisence isn't your $6K bike out the door or with mods.

Another very stock and clean looking 05 here for a lot less.

Good luck !

I can't think of any good reason to buy a 12 over a 9. If Honda has made any changes there so small no one knows about them.

HONDA sure likes to stick with a good thing. They are infamous for designing and making something that works well and then leaving it alone until the next leap in technology comes along.
