The 08 R6 is new and different compared to the 06-07. It just doesn't look "much" different.

I might have to go with a new R6 if they make the 09 or 10 model look similar to that proposed R1. I would go with the R1 but I won't due to cost and the fact that the way I ride, a 600cc is more than enough for me. lol.

MMMM... The 08 R6 is a ground up new bike. Not going to change it. BUT that R1 is total speculation. I would think they will finally ditch the undertail exhaust and go with the "stealth" exhaust i.e. buell. Also probably a stock quickshifter and gear indicator. I would also speculate it won't come with a solo cowl (gixxer's still got us there). In any case WE WON'T KNOW TILL SEPTEMBER, so everyone just calm down and be happy with what ya got.

the 2010 would be the bike to have. r1's for some reason always have first year teething problems.
