Quite a bit besides the colour and the price

Have a look at these two on Ebay you can see they are very different

So presumably the black swinger is vastly superior in the handling dept. due to icreased stiffness ect .
Is 500 the going rate ?

I'm sure its more in the aesthetics the grey one is cast and is very stiff, whereas the black is a fabrication. I would think you would need to be Carlos Checa's team mate to notice any difference in handling between the two of them.

Well i am not Calos's team mate (i failed at the first audition ) but is there any advantage to the later black swinger ? The grey (which is on my recently purchase 999s ) looks a robust bit of kit .

I race in the Desmodue series, I also don't set the world alight. My 749 has its grey, (painted black) swingarm in and its fine.
