    Hi,

    Thanks for the add, New member here from Scotland.

    Just sold my KTM Superduke 1290R and currently on the lookout for 12-16 Fireblade.
    Is there any difference between the bikes through these years ?
    Anything specific I should be looking out for?

    Having read through some of the forum I see ABS models are to be avoided which was what I was originally looking for haha.

    Welcome, good luck with the search, what colour are you favouring?
    Your KTM looked stunning.

    The KTM was an awesome bike and I never had any issues with it (granted I only done 5k in the time I had it)
    I’ve been wanting a blade for a few years now so time to scratch that itch while im still young enough haha

    how did you find the swap over ??
    obviously 2 totally different bikes. I’ve been wanting a blade for a while now I just hope I don’t regret the selling the SDR

    You say 12-16
    If you can afford a 16 go with that
    Last of the nothing on them.
    Like you I wanted abs until I done some research
    I love my black edition and glad I spent that little bit more (was looking for 12-14)
    And I think the horse power was a little More on the 16’s
    178 I think
