    Fairings, frame and engine are both different. It's possible it was made late in 2001 as a 2002 model, but that very much guessing on my part.

    All these responses and yet no one has actually answered the question...’01 or ‘02? ;) If the VIN plate shows a date of manufacture as xx/01, it technically was made then but general VFR wisdom says it’s an ‘02. That’s my final answer.

    Certainly a 6th gen so 2002. Was made in 2001 but not officially on sale till the launch in 2002. Id say yours was imported at a later date , registered and issued on an age related plate . They literally issued a plate date of manufacture 2001. But we all know 6th gens are 2002-2013

    when it runs does it make wonderful, exciting, sexy sounding gear-driven camshaft noise? Yes = 5th Gen, No = 6th Gen.

    (sorry, couldn't resist)
