There was a major change in the 08's from the 07's, (not sure of changes in the 09's). Some like the changes and some don't, I'm sure if you do a search you can find all the changes and judge for yourself if the changes benefit you.
The 87-07's were/are almost the same bike with a different color plastics, so you could pick up a decent used bike and save a lot of $$, but then you are buying used and don't know the history of the bike.
It all boils down to what YOU want, and what best fits YOUR needs.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
