I was under the impression that the B1078RR was a new model for 09. But that may not be true for all parts of the world. Perhaps the vin# will tell.

The number they stamp on the neck that holds all the model info.

Thanks guys it must be the 2009 then. Its just that some are shown as 2008 per registry, maybe the 3009 model was imported halfway through 2008. It has B4 and RR underneath across the tank.

No-no-no...I meant...what is the actual VIN? I know what it IS, but if he posted WHAT it is then we could tell year model.

Bassethound...look for the 8th character from the end....that is the year model. Y= 2000 and A = 2010.

8= 2008 and so forth.

Hi BH, looks very nice. Is it missing the "1078" decals on the lower tank sides? Where did you get it from as I think you are UK like me?

Hi matey, no it has the side "1078" decals. Got it Orrell motorcycle centre (nr Wigan). I'm 6ft exactly and 18stone (fatty i know but fast lol) It seems to fit me okay but my legs aren't to long 31" trousers inside leg. My wheeels are marchesini also with pirelli dragon super corse tyres. Can't wait until Tuesday....:mouthwate
