Anyone have experience with both of these bikes? If so, is the 19 "much" better?

They feel the same, I had an 17 and my brother just bought a 19. Still lacks on top stock, gearing spacing is still off and chassis feels the same.

If you can get a better deal on the '18 thats how I'd go. I don't think there is enough difference chassis wise to justify the extra cost. The '18 is already a bike that most will never use the full potential.

I spent a good 30 minutes comparing both the 18' and 19' side by side ( just looking ).......and in my opinion , I like the look of the 18' quite a bit better than the 19'. The white frame , body work , the way everything just looks more fluid together. I'm not a believer in some of these change's , that made the bike " better ". It uses a lot of the same parts from the 4 stroke's....and I think it came down to saving money on production........not because it made the bike better. But that's my opinion.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

i have a 19 i came from multiple aluminum framed yzs the thing is so much better in every way than the yamaha thats its not funny, and im a lifelong yammie guy it killed me to buy the husky but boy am i a hipocrit its awesome, as far as 18-19 the body work is quite different , the pipe has more ground clearance and the brochure ugly blue frame aint bad in person, im sure either one will be good for you but i wanted the latest and greatest two stroke made, and i think i got it

I never had an 18, but I can tell you the 19 is a BAAAAAD ASS MACHINE. I put a V Force on it, flywheel weight and it feels soooo good and linear. I am waiting on Bill's Pipe and Silencer. Why? Because I suck, and having the best weapon for battle guarantees me the most fun while getting last place.

I love my '17. Hoping back to back tests say it's not radically better.
