EVERY magazine I looked at last night had something about the new R6, if it wasn't on the cover, so I got tired of it before even really reading about it. Waht little I did read though said they boosted midrange(don't know how much though) and redesigned some of the suspension. Everything I saw said the bike was much better in every way, and given the reviews of the 06-07 bike, sounds like a good bike.

Don't care for the flames much though.

Bleh! Havent read the new review, but If I can recall, the 06 review by Sportrider pretty much said the bike belongs on the track, so if you do agressive/knee dragging kinda riding A LOT, then this bike will suit you just right.
