Hey folks --

Been looking for a while, and about 99% decided on the R3R. Going out for a test ride this week if all goes as planned. Wanted to get the opinion of those in the know - both a 2017 and 2018 are available for purchase in town, new, each with less than 100 miles on them.

Is there a huge difference between those two years? I like the styling of the 2017 better (matte vs polished black), but if something major was fixed in the '18 model I'd likely go that way.

Appreciate this great resource - looking forward to the upcoming rides & eventual modding of this beast!

Between those two, it's all about color and/or price. I've got a '17 roadster and love it!
