Does anyone know the differences between a 2005 and 2006 nomad?? I've searched and haven't come up with much. Looking at buying one of these. One is '05 and the other is '06. Any changes between the years? Thanks.

Still lost

the 05 is the last year that the 1500 cc was used. The 06 changed to a 1600 cc and changed the body and seat configurations just enough that the two years are no longer compatible for parts. I had the 1500 (o4) and a friend has an 06. I preferred the 04 for various reasons, mainly the smoothness of the shifter and seat comfort in the stock seat but both are good. De`pends on condition and price. II've had 3 Nomads and now ride a Voyager and while I'm not a brand loyal person, I ride the Vulcans because they're good machines at good value.

Thanks. Bought the '05. 5700 km. 1600 cc. Garage kept original owner. Very nice.
