The new instrument cluster looks much better. I hate the old all-digital one. It was tough to read.

the 650r was great for me when on the street and track. no need to change it up to a v twin imo.

that new model looks good. Nice to see them kinda getting away from the ugly seat

New seat has 1" more foam too and is designed to be much more comfortable.

I know it's a great entry level street bike. But I don't like the fact that it looks a lot faster than it really is.

I like my '07 also.
The analog gauges were one draw over an '09 I was also looking at.

Power-wise, it's fast enough for me (but I'm a lightweight). Pinned wide open from a low RPM front tire only lifts on a quick shift... with a little clutchwork, it'll pop up. Getting to 120mph is zero effort, above that takes some time. Which is a good thing for me.

VERY happy to see the low-slung side exit exhaust still.

Larger tank AND better fuel economy? I get 54-59mpg on the '07 depending on how i ride!

Hopefully the bars are as easy swap as previous models.... love my LSL bars.

- The bike I own
- All the bikes I used to own which I still list so everyone on the forums will know how cool I am








had an er6n for a couple of months, didn't like it. The engine buzzes you so bad, it was worse than my big 650 thumper. It also made about as much power. Also the suspension and braking components were really really really really cheap.
