The 2009s have a heavier, cheaper steel tube frame rather than the aluminum twin-spar, and a different engine with 2/3rds the power of the original FZ6. It has a full fairing to appeal to new sport bike riders (not that there's anything wrong with that), but sliding pin brake calipers, stamped steel parts, and was built to a price point. It was definitely a few notches down from an older FZ6.
Just do some homework before you decide. The 2009 was not a natural refinement and upgrade from the 2008...
Here's a link to some info:
I don't want to dis anyone who rides a 2009, I just want to get the story out there. I hope this helps...
