FZ-07 to FZ-09

Hello! I'm a current FZ-07 owner that has the opportunity to purchase an FZ-09 at a pretty sweet deal. I also have someone interested in purchasing my 07, so I'm really tempted to go ahead and do it.

Have any of you gone from an 07 to an 09? If so what have you liked/disliked about the change? Thanks guys!

I have both and they're both fun in their own way.

The 09 suspension is a little stiffer, motor is smoother and everything happens at a quicker clip than the -07. The seat sucks, you're going to have to change it; I'd swear it has teeth.

You'll love it.

I have both as well. They're very different. The -09 feels sportier than the -07, is less comfortable, has more engine heat, gets worse fuel economy and is faster....but the -07 is no slouch. The -07 is really a great bike but has inferior suspension (compared to the '17 -09 at least). If you care about range (or economy) the -07 is really exception. I find the riding position and seat of the -07 to be better than the -09.

They're both great bikes but different.
