you need to look yourself in the mirror and say am I ready for the pro racer mode? can I handle this power? and more importantly can I handle all these beautiful women throwing themselves at me? before you even consider an R1

Screw the 07-08....after seeing the 09 R1, I liked it...
After hearing one with a full Akro... I liked it more





After riding one... I'm ready to cut out my own kidney for one and vow my undying love for it.... The new one is bad ...

Bikes don't get any sexier than the 07-08 R1s. 05s look bad too. Power is high in the revs, somewhat forgiving for that reason. From a roll or below 7k its nothing too impressive. I love mine, GL to you in your search.

Try the Dallas/Fort W. area.they usually have a surplus of 07-08 models for sale.Or do what I did and get an 09.Just have to scale back your expenses a little bit like me, not eating

How does the '09 R1 compare to your '07 ZX-10R: Handling, Power, etc?
