2008 and 2009. Not too sure about the differences besides the engine. I think the slipperclutch and brakes. The rest should be small things.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Too many to mention

Throttle bodies, brakes, suspension, slipper clutch, oil pump......why ?

You forgot about the second "R"; which makes it go faster than the earlier models with only one "R".

to be clear the 1078 312RR was a 2 year model. There is a 2008 312R 1078 advertised in cycle trader but it has no markings of the 1078. Wasn't 1078 put on the tail. Okay I just noticed the 1078 should be on the tank, so if not onthe tank I will assume the one in cycle trader is a regular 1000

Yes. From an optical point of view the 1078 is different. It should be on the tank and tail. The fairing is also different paint scheme. If it is not like that it is very likely not one.

Pretty sure that in the US (different to rest of world), the 2008 was the 998cc 312R, and the 2009 was the 1078cc 312RR. Each was a one year model.

He asked produced. So 2008 and 2009 is correct. And I know; I have both.

that is what I thought so if that is correct there can not be a 2008 312 RR 1078.

So.... The 2009 produced becomes then a 2010?
And about the newer versions which are called the 2010s are actually 2011 over there?
