Thumbs up New body yamaha R1 or old body

Opinions needed. I just bought the 2009 yamaha R1. Love it. Some people i know though think the 2009 / new body is ugly. Im curious to know what everyone think is better and wud have been a better choice, body wise. The 2008 or the 2009? Thanks.

I think you should not worry about what anyone else thinks and get exactly what you want, which you did. Be happy with your decision and don't second-guess yourself. If you had bought an '08 there would be some people saying "Why didn't you get the '09? It's so much better."

Enjoy your new bike!

If you are truly on the fence, then I'd do whatever puts or leaves the most coin in your pocket.
