Some bikes that are manufactured (as with cars) in the last few months of the year will have a build date on them as of that year. IE: a 98 built in October of 97 will show 10/07 on the tags even though it is a new model year.

As with Mustang cars... the very first Mustangs were offered in 1965, but you will occassionally hear someone touting their car as a 64 1/2 Mustang. That's because the first '65's rolled off the assembly line in June/July of 64.

I would say your bike is a '98 that was built in the last couple months of '97. Check the tag... it probably says 09/97 or later.

Hope this helps.
