As I may be trading / Consignment the 2006 model C.R in once it has been fixed. I would like to know from any 2008 owners the following

What issues have they had with their models
has the overfuelling issue been resolved from new
Has the clutch machanics been resolved.
What recalls on this model have they done, I am sure quality issues have been resolved by now.

Any problems, please let me know. Will go towards making a good / bad decision in the future.

:rolleyes:

Mallard I would stick with the 06 once they sort it out.
How many miles did you manage to put on it.
With regards to the differences - who knows what they have done on the newer models. If there is a big difference in price I would not upgrade. It sounds like Benelli in Aus are trying to take care of you guys there, with being pro active on the upgrades/recalls.

yep

the guys at Benelli Oz, SCPS are very approachable and genuine, thankfully they are sticking to their guns and customers and pursevering with fixing all the bikes, as we will most likely be their next customers, unless i buy a bimota ;-), which they sell too.:bow:

couple of other things.
The 08 will have a cat and O2 sensor.
The mirrors are different. I prefer the 06 ones.
The rear turn signals ( indicators) are also different. Again I prefer the 06.
Have not noticed any other changes. But have not really looked for any.

I can see where the O2 sensor would be good to have. :D Damn rich bikes..Is this something that can be added on to previous bikes and then remapped to act on the readings? I wonder?
I haven't seen any 08 ones. Does any one have close up shots so we can see these differences.

You're out of luck. The sensor does not help over all mapping. Only low revs.
I'll see if I can go and get some pics of the 08.

+1 to other comments. SCPS have been good to me too. I can understand your frustration and interest in switching but Im going to perservere with the 07'
