Hey guys,

I currently have a 2007 1098 and am looking at picking up a 2007 1098S (black/red frame) because I can.

I have two questions, google isn't much help on this.

1. Why would the display on the 1098S look different? Backlight seems darker and font seems bolder?
2. Did the 1098 / 1098S ever come with a black swing arm? Everything I can find says no the 1098's were all silver.

Thanks all,
Josh

Display would be the same. Swingarm was polished aluminum. I have owned 2 S model 1098 and both had polished. The 1098 SF did come with a black swingarm that was powder coated.

i know the 1098R-Bayliss had a black swingarm and it looks like it’s black anodised.
