it retains many key RR aspects: under seat exhaust, dual headlight 'eyes', swingarm (although now is a better looking black), and seat. The only thing that makes it any more R6ish is the lower cowling which is a little more open. Its borrowed a touch from the RSVR (front cowl). All in all I am happy with my 2k4 600RR, but am not unhappy with the new design. Althought I am a Honda man to the core so I guess my opinion is bias.
