I see that EMO64 has a new 2008 SW. Mine is 05, 50.000 miles still running strong.
Is there an other good reason, except of course the joy of having a brand new toy, to buy a new one?
What is the difference? What did Honda do to cultivate this success further?

The only visible difference is the move away from a painted dash to a textured plastic with different storage box covers. This change occured in 2007.

I'm not sure what year Honda added the O2 sensor, but that and a spec change to a slightly thinner oil (Year 2006?) are the only drive train changes as far as I know.

On my wish list would be only 1 item=

do away with the belt drive, although very comfortable and reliable and put a hydraulic drive in.

The differences i found on my 09 compared to my 07 was totaly smoothed out and maybe? powdercoated real alm. belt housing . Theres no webbing of any kind and the rims also are in some sort of protected coloring as well. also the 02 sensor
