Get the 2012-> model, if you can.

Right now I've got a 2007 ABS, and the new one, and while the older one is largely responsible for the good reputation (because it's been around longer, naturally), the updated model is better in many small, but noticeable areas. After my first short test ride on the 2012 I remember thinking, that it really feels like it's more than the sum of its parts should be on paper. The older one (which I also bought new) has served me really, really well, but didn't create that feeling right away.

But these are only my personal experiences, and differences are not huge, so it probably also comes down to money, too.
