No. The newer only have disks on the front though. In my opinion, you should go for a 01'-13' and add a $200 kickstarter kit on it if you think you need it. You may be able to find a leftover bike at the dealer and get +-$500 off. I picked up a 2010 last year listed as an 09' for $3600 but with tax, title, taxes, fees and extended warranty it ended up being right around $5500.
