2006 R1 vs 50th anniversary edition

Can someone tell me what the difference between the two are? Ive noted different rims on the tires as well as a minor differences in the fairing and paint but is their any real differences asside from the price difference?

Thanks,
Sepias

Here's the specs on each. The only thing I can see, other than the paint, wheels and price is the rear shock and weight. The LE says it has an Öhlins rear and weighs 2lbs more.

Hope this helps.

2006 Yamaha YZF-R1
Specifications

In a Nutshell: GP tech trickles down with revised rigidity of the main frame between the engine mounts and steering head, a new, more rigid lower triple clamp, and a 20mm-longer swingarm. Shorter valve guides and other revisions increase intake flow and reduce friction for more power.

I think there is more to it than that.. I'm pretty sure the forks were ohlins on the LE...

It has Ohlins suspension and Marchassini wheels and should come with corsa tires I believe!

It's alot more than just special. But if your not racing you won't really need the extra $10,000 in Parts!

yep, i've got an 05 and have been over the anniversary 06 but am not real sure about it being worth the money, not to mention that all my other vehicles are in red and black and am not sure if i want to step out of the pattern and go with yellow.
