2007 CBR600RR

HOLY SMOKES!!! From the looks of it, this is going to be one amazing machine! The white and grey is sweet. My first questions are about the actual size of the machine itself. They have shortened up the wheel base and dramatically reduced the size of the engine. I hope it's not going to feel like a pocket bike (I'm 6'3", so this would be a concern for me). Also, the tail light and rear turn signals are on the rear fender. It doesn't look like it will be possible to put on a fender-eliminator kit. We'll just have to wait and see I guess.

Anyone else?

Take a look...

Lighter weight, more hp and torque, steering damper....sounds sweet to me (though I couldn't use all of the performance my 2000 F4 was capable of).

Anymore the year to year improvements are so far beyond any normal person's ability to use that they are basically irrelevant. Useful only when comparing spec sheets. Pick the one that looks best.

There will be some sort of fender eliminator kit developed. The only real difference in the rear there is that the brake/tail light is also on the fender. Turn signals are no different. Someone will have an eliminator that hangs the stuff around the exhaust.

Really a nice bike though. It will seem very small for a 6'3" rider.

the only difference I see is the tail pips position even the gas tanks look almost inerchangable

DOn't get me wrong though the bike is really hot

They bit the design from the pros

I do agree. The 2007 CBR600RR's fairings do slightly resemble the GSXR's, too. I'll just have to see the Honda in person. I am really looking forward to seeing the new Kawasaki 636. I hope they don't give it the same treatment as the ZX10R got last year. Just my opinion.

You guys are scaring me. It looks like the R6 and the GSXR??? Could it be that they all look like sportbikes?

I can't wait for them to come out. Not that I'll be getting one but just to see how they perform. At first I didn't like it to much but it has grown on me.

There's a striking similarity between r6's front ram air intake, and the 2007's 600RR, but when you look back, the RC51 also had it, so Honda claims to have borrowed the design from their previous superbike and current GP bikes.

All the package looks good, but it seems to be the only middleweight left without a slipper, lets add that too Honda!

As it stands, the GSXR600/750 is the complete package, adjustable pegs and seat, steering damper, slipper, and gear indicator for the handicapped. But the styling is typically gixxer-funky

I think it might be the best looking sportbike Ive ever seen. There is just something about it that looks damn near perfect.
