    Considering chopping my SE in for the caspian blue 2010 if as good as it looks in the photos-but then i thought the 09 SE looked good until i saw it in the flesh :? , mines not even done 5k yet! (had her from new),and im paying for her via black horse finance-how much is mine gonna be worth??

    Like i said,i do wnat to see the 2010 first before i decide

    The money it would cost and therefore you'd lose on making the swap would pay for a paint job if your that desperate to get a blue bike would it not?

    And with all the goodies in your sig you really would lose a packet as the bike would need to be original in everyway to be worth anything to a dealer. Unless of course you would put it all back to stock and re-use the aftermarket bits on the new bike. Which SE you got? Black one, or white one??

    Kept all the o/e parts for mine so i can return her to standard no probs.

    Shes a 08 SE so black, 09 was white.
    Not just the colour i like, the 09-2010 have been tweaked slightly more compared to mine,and mine is literally just a summer/track toy

    paws, if you like blue bikes check out page 2 of "does your d675 have a name". Pic posted by Godzilla I think?
    Blue and white not really my thing but that one does look good.

    If you are going to the NEC, then def have a good look at it . And def have a test ride on the new model when it becomes available. I seem to remember you riding the 09 one for a mag article (correct me if I'm wrong), so you may find its not worth spending the extra after a test ride :)

    I didnt really look at the 08 SE when i saw it so lesson learnt there LOL :lol: , i did test ride the 09 675 and wasnt hugely impressed but then i hadnt really had much time on mine/ the 09 to compare, as i said-i want to see what the blue ACTUALLY looks like

    Save your money & wait awhile til you've put more miles on the bike you have, otherwise you're just throwing money away for a colour. At 5K your bike is still practically brand-new.




    ....Still, it's your money.

    Hi Andy,
    i got a custom bike policy from Carol Nash cost £340,
    but thats with all the bits i have on the bike listed,
    a bit steep i know but with my record of falling of it,
    it's worth it,

    I'm the last bloke that should be giving you any advice on chopping in your 675
    whether its for a change of bike or colour, but I will guarantee you it will cost you
    a lot, you will find when you get a settlement figure from Black Horse finance and
    compare it with what your dealer will offer you, I'm afraid you'll end up owing the
    difference £££££ that will be extra to pay or borrow on top of the new 675?

    Don't let me put you off though, I chopped in my 08 675SE for the Gixer 750
    cause I liked the colour but I'm more than happy with it, at the end of the day
    its what you feel comfortable with and of course if you can justify the extra cost
    for what is the same bike with a different wardrobe and you wont notice the colour
    at 100mph plus.

    I can't beleive you would want to get rid of an 08 se, black & gold it's the best colour :clap: :clap:

    I've had a yellow one, and now I've got a red one, but if I was going to have one in black, there would be no doubt about it, the SE would be the one. The gold just sets it off in my opinion. I like :D

    That is a real nice bike Rowly,
    Why did you chop it in for a Gixer?
    remember you saying at the time but forget,
    in my opinion the 675 ticks all the boxes and the fact it is made by a British firm seals the bargin,
    Japanese bikes are everywhere,
    A 675 in my book has the same apeal as any Italian sportsbike,
