Yes, I really do have one. And no, I'm not messing w/you.
The R7 that I have has a partial race kit installed. I have a whole race kit, but if you install and enable the entire race kit, then the dash simply displays oil temp, which doesn't help much when you're riding around on the street. (Mine has a street legal title, plate, registration, etc.)
The bike is really fast as it sits. It is faster than a couple of my R6s - all 3 are 2003 models, one street/track, one supersport legal and one superbike. The R7 is about as quick as the R6 superbike, but the latter has had a lot of work done to the head.
The best part about the R7 though - other than the sound of the race pipe(!) - is the handling of the front end. I have several Ducatis, which I consider to have the some of the best front-ends in the business, but the R7's front end puts everything to shame. You can literally put the bike anywhere you want in a corner. Of course, it feels like you have the axle between your hands, which probably helps alot, but it's pretty incredible.
