FWIW I think the 07 looks way cooler
I've already got an 08 on order. It will be here Thursday. I'll draw my own conclusions, but don't expect when/if you get one to bust up your neighbors gixxer.

No Repsols, yet. Wait til 09.
I personally hope they do a Hanspree rep instead.

Last year’s CBR trailed the pack in terms of peak power, so Honda threw out the old 998.6cc inline-Four and built a new 999.8cc version. (C’mon, guys, you’re giving up 0.19cc while remaining below the 1000cc limit!) Its bore has gone up 1mm while its stroke is 1.5mm shorter than before. Also new are titanium intake valves, slightly larger than previous. Cams are lighter by 1.1 lb thanks to a new, chilled, thin-wall, ductile steel casting process that allows a reduced wall thickness, and its cylinder head is narrower by 15mm and lighter. Overall, the engine has lost more than 5 lbs.

The new CBR has more ponies up top, which is always nice, but even more satisfying is buckets of midrange grunt that might be the best in its class.

The new CBR has more ponies up top, which is always nice, but even more satisfying is buckets of midrange grunt that might be the best in its class.

Getting Honda representatives to divulge closely held information is easier than getting al-Qaeda to talk, but not by much. Still, a short waterboarding session revealed this new 1000RR is pushing nearly 7% more power. Our 2007 CBR test bike cranked out a rather modest 148 hp, so we expect this new one to spit out nearly 160 hp at its rear wheel.

It can now run with the big dogs at the track. But even more impressive from a seat-of-the-pants perspective is the bump in midrange power. The’07 bike was at or near the top of the pack in terms of twist below 9000 rpm, but this new CBR easily puts the old one on the trailer. It was rather impressive to have the front wheel soar off the ground in a controllable power wheelie while exiting the second-gear Turn 3, no squidly clutch dump required.

Your source is consistent with mine. I've seen 165 whp charts with a stock bike, pc3, and map.
No doubt, this will be an excellent track machine and a rather subtle street bike, the Jones' are running for the gixxer and kwaker because of their horsepower supremacy. You just can't claim super state of the art, futuristic engine goodies, cause it just doesn't fit the bill.

I'm sorry, cashtown. I'll change it, assuming the mods deem it necessary.
