Is it a 2017 or 2018?

I bought my rebel 300 in Pattaya Thailand three weeks ago new and nothing on my paper work says a year just engin number and Cassie number. I ask the sales girl the one who could speak English and she just said yes it’s new. I know it’s new what year? She thought I didn’t know what year were in and said in Thailand it’s 2561 now. Thailand 2018 is year 2561. Is there any way to tell the difference between a black ABS 300 from 2017 and 2018?

On the left side of the bike, the clutch side, on the frame is a sticker with the date of manufacture and the year.

Alternatively, the 10th digit of your VIN tells you the year.

H is 2017, J is 2018.

2561 is 2018 in Thailand that was easy for me to get used to but riding on the left side of the road took me awhile to get use to sometimes making a turn I still go into the right lane but my Thai wife jives me a slap on my helmet haha.
