Who needs black calipers and swingarm anyhow......

Regards the original question, I would go for the near new one, but do a coolant flush and fit a sidestand bracket before your trip.
It's not just the black swingarm and brake calipers that are ugraded on the new style dash model:) The bigest update is that it has the SD's engine, and the new (not so snatchy) ECU
And yes, you're right that the 2009 is the first new style dash model year
