Thoughts please

thinking about getting a 1000RR but can't decide on the 06 or 07. The new paint scheme is sweet and the black swing arm is nice 2! Also, prices what do you think I should be paying for these. I know this is a stupid thread but I can't seem to make up my mind here.
Any help is appreciated

thanks

BC

I'm lazy. I rode an R6 the other day and man it was fast but I felt like a giant on it. I like the riding position on the 1000RR since I have a bad back and hip this is very important. and the weight difference is only about 20lbs so might as well get the bigger motor.

bigger isn't always better you know. get you a back protector and tighten it up on your lower back, that helps a great deal while riding with lower back aches..

I think you should get the new '07 Vespa...more your riding style....J/K!!! I don't have any clue about either of those bikes so my opinion is worthless. GL on your decision.

I know bigger isn't always better however I enjoy the power band of the 1k's especially on the street. Yeap the back protector does help.

Get the '07.
I'm liking the black swingarm and the color scheme plus you're not losing an entires year of depreciation.

Not sure yet but the riding position is super comfy on the honda. I got to keep it bigcomfy style. Man your R6 does sound sick though
