Any notable differences between 2015 and 2016?

Recommended Posts

Howdy,
 
Since we are on the cusp of the season and model year change I though it would be a valid question.
 
I have read a number of articles that mention the FZ-09 was tweaked slightly (maybe this was to resolve the "jerky" throttle I have been reading about)? But that the FZ-07 remained unchanged except the paint.
 
I am hoping there isn't much different as I prefer the paint from '15. But I want to be as informed as possible as paint isn't that important.
 
Thank so much in advance for your advice!

Paint... but for around $200 US that can be swapped out with factory parts that are pre painted...
 
I have a qoute from my dealership somewhere, I was looking at getting the Raven panels and pinstriping them in red for a stealthy kinda look
 
 

ATGATT... ATTATT, two acronyms I live by.

I stopped by my dealer and saw the 2016 with the Silver / Burple. I loved it, although the decals are a bit cheesy. That combo is nice and the blurple wheels are really cool.

Initially I liked them but the more I looked at them I kinda felt the same way, a little cheesy/too grabby, too AMF Sportster-ish. 
I finally received some gas tank decals I'd ordered some time back and took the blue pin striping off my tank. I think they look cool & mean at the same time. I'll put some pics of them up a little later today.
