The only issue I have heard about the 2010+ is the light front end, which can be easily changed with the kit that moves your engine 2" forward. Coming off a two stroke I personally have no issues with the front end being too light. I absolutely love my 2010, can't say enough good things about it. Besides picking between the Yamaha or Kawi... I really think it's 6 of one or half a dozen of the other. I've also heard good reviews about the Kawi but... Yamaha has my heart. It's light, it's nimble, the EFI tuner is amazing when you do different types of riding. Overall I could not be happier with the bike. I don't really think you can go wrong either way... But I personally think the 2010+ YZF's are the sickest looking bikes I have seen to date.
