Check out the 07 600RR

This looks SOO sweet. it reminds me of a mix of Honda, Yamaha, and some gixxer design in it.

Just to be fair, I didnt find these to begin, so I dont want to take credit for what someone else found. I saw it on another bike forum, and thought you honda enthusiasts would like to check it out.

Is it just me or did Honda just copy the R6 and throw in a little Gixxer to make it less obvious. It's a nice looking bike, but 2 thumbs down to Honda for lack of originality.

I'm not wild about it. I like the 06 better. It's about time they did the swingarm in black to match the bike though.

I like the bike. Very cool. I think I will wait until the manufacturers start producing the 800cc replica bikes. Can you say R8, GSX-R800, CBR800RR, ZX-8RR?

I wonder how it competes against the R6, thats the only real question.

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.

dont forget that the RC51 had through the steering head ram air well before other bikes. So its right on a honda.

The 750 I will agree, the 600 is outmatched bike vs bike with rider ability taken out of the equation. Suzuki will eventually redesign to catch back up, they always do.

I like it, but then again I like all the '07 bikes. Well most of them anyway.
