    2018 vs 2019 Shiver 900

    I threw a leg over the 2018 Shiver 900 at my local dealership (yes, I'm lucky enough to have one last weekend and I've decided to buy one. Here's my dilemma. They have a 2018 demo model with only 100 Km (70 miles) on it for 20% off full retail price. However, from what I'm able to piece together, the list of refinements in the 2019 model is significant so it may be worth the higher price to buy the 2019 model. Better fuel injectors, the upgraded ECU and "A semi-dry sump lubrication system [which] helps reduce the loss of power caused by the shaking" [Shaking? What shaking?] are the 3 updates I'm most interested in. I really wish I could find more details on the ECU update.

    I'm very interested to hear your views on this. Thanks in advance.

    I haven't heard about the changes you mention. Where did you get the information? All I've heard is the display includes some navigation functionality and that the exhausts vent downwards instead of sideways, which should help if, like me, you have panniers fitted and don't want them over-heating!

    They're just re-stating the improvements the 900 lump already has over the 750, very misleading.

    There is next to no difference between the 2018 and 2019, the most significant being the exhaust as mentioned, then maybe the colours available.

    Wow. Well, this misinformation is getting around, because I've seen it repeated in various places. I think I might just snatch up the demo model.

    Interesting to see these pics; that's the first time I've seen the red one. The gold brake calipers seem to have gone out of fashion.
    Also, on the subject of misinformation, the info on the link the OP gave above mentions a new 'joystick' on the left control to navigate the menus, but it is absent from these photos.
