Probably 09. Here in Europe all 08 and 09 models have long exhausts.

USA, Canada, Australia, and a few other select places are the only countries that get the short silencer, most other countries get the long one, however they also get a powerbomb header stock.

Argentina gets the long exhaust, other south american countries get the shorty one.
Don't worry, you are getting the real thing
