Mike, they've looked pretty much the same since 06 with the exception of the headlight design.


On another note, I thought they'd be 2 piece brake calipers, but they're actually monobloc! Can't wait for wrecked ones to start popping up.

Well clearly you'll get a better deal on the 600 because no one would buy it

True, but if for the cost of a exhaust canister, you will get a more displacement and more hp/tq... sounds good to me.

Werd. And why do they still have stainless steel lines with Brembos. That's like wrapping forged OZ rims with cheap rubber. If they did put a brembo mc on there there are going to be a lot of wrecked gxrs. The first time I switched to Brembos with stainless lines a few years ago I locked up the front and went down in a week because I grabbed it like I had on all my other bikes. This was after having ridden for many years too, so I can only imagine all the noobs who buy gxrs grabbing a fistful of italian engineering.
