Hi all. Don't have a Connie yet, looks like I may end up buying a 2010 Connie ABS. Haven't even sat on one yet. Ride a 97 cbr1100xx for the last decade or so. Looking for any tips that might help me understand the difference in the years. I am aware of the big changes that came in 2010 but not sure if anything else big happened since. Also Interested in ergonomic changes through the years. Feel free to point me in a direction I will be happy to follow it.

Thanks very much for the Welcome. Still have not even sat on the connie. I am sure it will be plenty comfortable. Should be a great ride from CT. to CA.

Hi Anthony,
Welcome to the forum.
2010 had big changes in fairing and a few other items. 2011 made ABS standard. There are a few 2010s out there that don't have ABS, so if having ABS is important to you (it was to me), and you come across a 2010, make sure it has it.
2015 had some more changes, but I think less dramatic than 2010/2011.

Happy hunting!

Jorge
