Very well balanced bike with a decent low and and a great midrange. It can get up and go if twisted. Spectacular wheelie bike.

Engine is relatively bulletproof. Parts are certainly available.

I prefer the black on silver.

Compared to today's bikes it is heavy.

Great bikes. Easy transition from a 600. Really easy to modify and customize. Not as powerful as an 07 gxsr in the high end, but the mid range is the cbr likes to play. If you're the type to ride with reversed shift, you'll need to invest in rearsets. It is heavier than newer liter bikes, but it can still corner and put the power down

13,000 miles with no mechanical problems other than a set of fork seals. 80% of these are track miles. Changed the oil in 2008, again around 2012. So far so good.

Great all around bike. Ridden mine to Mexico. Recently in Grand Canyon area. Power is good, especially coming off a 600. Compared to a new liter bike, not that great.

However, even box stock it can be ridden fast, even at the track. Steering dampner is awesome. 2nd gear clutchups at freeway speeds possible. Two finger stoppies in 4th gear at MSRH with just a pad swap.

Best all arounder I've ever had. Got it off CL with a "bad transmission" for $3.6k in 2008. Problem was the external shift mechanism was bent. Free repair. I beat it up, neglect it, and it keeps on chugging. Even still has factory chain.. These things are bulletproof.

I had the 04 and the 07. Both of them were amazing bikes and probably One of my all time favorites. It looks good and the power is definitely there. I'll be looking for another one soon myself.

had 06 and 08.

The performance difference between the 06-07 and 08+ is not comparable. 08+ is lighter, more nimble, more low and mid with similar top end.

BUT- you gotta deal with a snub-nose and no undertail exhaust. Aesthetics are the only real reason I'd go for an 07 and back vs 08+
