'08 SHO or '09 FZS
Hi everyone, just wanted your opinions and input. All comments are appreciated.
My dealer has an '08 FX-SHO Cruiser and a '09 FZS available and he's sort of keen to get them out of his shop. Perhaps too keen. I asked him what's the big difference between the '08 SHO hull, engine and features, and the new ones in 2010. He said only the colour is different, everything else is the same (can it be???).
Also no major difference between the FZS '09 and '10, except colour.
Appreciate if you could tell me from your experience which ride is the better one? The '08 SHO / '09 FZS model versus the 2010 models. Both FX-SHO or FZS would be OK for me. I just don't know the differences between the older models versus 2010 models. If the 2010 models are better in terms of hulls, engines or handling, then I'd go for the new ones. I will definitely spend some elbow grease and $$ on upgrades for either ride.
I have only one previous experience with this dealer, and I sort of feel uncomfy with him. Unfortunately there's only one Yamaha dealer over here.
