I was curious if there and significant changes to the cockpit, tank. fairing, front etc from 2009 to 2012?

I can see that the signals area look larger on the '12. It looks to me that the tank / cockpit area looks wider but that might just be because I've been away from this model for a while.

Thanks,
Ken

The change took place with the 2010 model, i.e., the 2010 thru 2012 are basically the same. Besides switching to the overhead cam engine the body and dash were changed on the 2010. That is the reason I paid full price on a 2010 instead of taking a $1500 discount on a left over 2009 model (mostly for the new engine).

Good lord, could the tank get any wider then in an '09 It is a beast! And I believe the answer is the tank area is the same.

It It is a beast. That's why I'm asking. On the other hand, the '09 was sapphire black and we all know black is slimming. :D

I know the changes are small but I still prefer the look of the 09 to newer models.

I could have purchased the 2010 but after riding the 2009 I liked the feel of the controls better so bought it. I did not like the small changes or the feel of the bike. The new engine was something that may have swayed me however I have no regrets. The overall changes to body are minor.
