Looks almost the same. Doens't look like much was changed except the body work and tank. I could be wrong though. If it was a "new design", I'd think more would be changed, so I wouldn't be surprised if the 06-07's can be upgraded with plastics and such to look like 08's.

I hate to admit it, but I think I'm getting too old to enjoy something like that...unless I find time to play at the track.

the body work has been tweaked to provide better aero's. over 50 parts of the engine were changed and redesigned for better reliablity and better power.

new for 2008:

* Over 50 friction-reducing strategies have been employed inside the engine, including the use of wider crank bearings.
* Upgraded fuel injection mapping for the YCC-T dual-injector system complements the higher compression ratio for great throttle response and reduced engine braking.
* A magnesium subframe removes weight from the rear of the motorcycle for increased mass centralization.
* All-new frame takes handling to the next level, allowing more precise turn-in, greater corner speed, and tighter exits. Thicker headpipe-headstock and swingarm pivot area walls, and elimination of the frame crossmember, help achieve perfect balance.
* New swingarm has internal ribs added, and extruded section is now forged to work with the new frame.
* Revised outer fork tubes, a new lower triple clamp, and increased fork offset provide highly tactile front-end feedback.
* Moving the rider and bars forward and slightly lower enhances braking and turn-in performance. Clip-ons are also lower and re-angled.
* Front discs are 310 x 5mm instead of 4.5mm for increased cooling qualities.
* Increased fork height adjustability and rear ride-height adjustment range accommodate a greater range of riders and tires.
* Revised bodywork results in even greater aerodynamic efficiency.
*YCCTI - Intake lenghth controller

y'all 06 07 owners should be glad that it didn't change much or else the price on your bike will dropped another grand or 2. To the unsuspecting eyes it looks the same.
