'07

Anyone bought/ridden/know someone who bought an '07 R1. Do the variable length intake tubes make a noticeable difference? How is the slipper clutch? Does the new frame make a big difference.

I don't wanna buy one, I can't afford it plus I'm locked into my R6. Love it too much. Anywho, if any of you have experience with them, report back please! :icon_bigg

Have you tried an R6/R1 message board? Not trying to be a smart ... Just thinking there would be enough owners over there of 07 R1s to get a good amount of responses to make a better decision...

My friend in NYC bought one. He works at a Yammie Shop and got one for under $10k cash , but anyways.

I spoke to him, he's put 1500 miles on her and says "barely any difference to be noticed on the street" as for track, he says it'll have to wait for the weather to clear.

that can be said with jsut about every street bike. all that slipper clutch variable intake runners blah blah blah really isn't any goodfor the street whatsoever. so basically get teh bike because of looks.
