I'm looking at getting either an 08 or 09 Buell XB12Scg.

I looked and sat on both of the bikes. an orange 08 and a blue 09. I was wondering if there are any differences between the two years besides colors and the brake upgrade.

should I get an 08 leftover if the price is good, or should I pony up the extra coin and get an 09.

Thanks.

really the only difference is the 09 is all blacked out. buell is good about test rides so take a crack at both to see if the breaks are satisfactory to you.

I bought an 08 XB12ScG a year ago and test rode an 09 recently. they exactly ride and look the same, except for color. depends on what you like looking at the most. I'd jump on the 08 if they offer a great deal. just my .02. post pix though when you get home with one.

Besides being blacked out the 09 has the updated ZTL 2 front caliper. I have rode both and didnt notice a difference. I would go with the better deal.
