With rare exception the answer to any vehicle is, "The newer the better."

Every year usually improves something but major enhancements appeared in 2006 and 2013.

ABS became optional in 2004, standard in 2006. Each of 2007, 2008, and 2009 refined throttle response. Heated handgrips in 2012, cruise control in 2013. The 85 MPH limit was removed from CC in 2014. ES suspension option started in 2014. LED headlights and OBD-II ECU in 2016.

Buy my 2005 with 2900 miles on it! Many upgrades but back surgery prevents me from riding. Itís been garaged and in awesome condition
