I cant vote, I have both. 

I know Romney told me the ES outsells the non-ES in a very big way.  Not even remotely close. 

How's that for scientific statistics   ;D

Not doubting you, DD, but I heard that 87.65% of statistics you read on the internet are made up.  ;D

Check your number, Fred.  I have it on good authority that percentage is a bit low.

2014 non ES. I tried an ES prior to buying, found myself constantly fiddling with it all morning. 95% of my riding is solo and on road so no need to keep changing settings. I have it set up just right and no complaints about it. I got centre stand and grips included in deal.

What about those that bought their bikes before the ES was available, it may affect the results.

2014 ZE which is  a  U.K. ES,

I chose the ZE /ES because it represented good value for money,  although I don't use the ES much  :)

The poll says:

I have a non-ES version of any year.

Yes, but my point is, for those that bought pre-ES, they didn't have a choice.  As a marketing manager, I would want to know what the current trend is when considering an ES.

I understand that point and would like to know that also, but the OP said the vendor looking into making a larger tank wanted to know what the % was of ES and non ES of any year. I don't understand what that has to do with tank size, but that is the info that he wanted. Of course there were a lot more non ES sold than ES if you consider the years before the ES was available, but evidently the 2012, 2013 owners are not responding to this poll, as right now it shows the ES is 46.5% and that can't be accurate if all years are considered.

Had a 2012, but when it was totalled I replaced it with a 2015 ES. I didn't want an ES bad enough to have just traded it in, but when I needed a replacement I searched for an ES because of talking to a couple friends with them. And I did have to search, it took 5 dealers before I found an ES available.
