i bet the 600RR gets slipper for 08

it seems to be the only thing it lacked this year yet it still dominated in all of the tests except top speed which the yamaha took. Although who wants a bike with no midrange?? i love the looks of the R6 but the powerband is all jacked up.

if the CBR 600RR gets slipper clutch for 08, it will be yet another amazing bike. although isn't the gixxer getting an update since its unchanged since 05?

it should be a good year.

Im finding that on my bike, I dont need a slipper now that I freed up the exhaust. The stock exhaust was very restrictive. The new exhaust is so much more free brathing that I can slam it into a lower gear without a blip of the throttle and not have to worry about locking up the rear wheel.

I dont know, it seems Honda thinks light wieght is more important, and the lack of a slipper clutch doesnt seem to be hurting the CBR at all, at least in the shoot outs!

I just don't see a need for it... Especially for 99.99999999999999% of the people who will buy these bikes...

Kawasaki has not published the dry weight on a 2007 ZX6r yet.

2007 600's CBR600RR=345lbs GSXR600=354lbs YFZ-R6=357lbs.

I doubt the 2007 ZX-6R would be anywhere near 375lbs.

Its called progress. People said the same about Fuel Injection when it came out.

I fail to see the need for such a device. the past 20 years we've had bikes without the slipper clutch, and they've worked just fine for all that time, I dont see why we'd need to start using them now.

I'm sure people said that when automobiles came out and they were still using horse and buggy.

Hands down, technological advancement is good and necessary. Why should society EVER be completely satisfied with the status quo when there is infinite room for improvement?

If people used your logic above, our society would still be a bunch of cavemen. Silly.

I doubt it. Although it's possible. They're huge emphasis is on weight this year. That's the ONLY thing it's missing though, so if they find a way to incoporate it without added net weight...

I see a need for it, and actually it's pretty simple when you apply some laws of physics. Being that the bikes are getting insanely lighter there is alot less to keep the front end down going into a turn at high speeds. Before this wasn't a problem and a slipper clutch would have been nice, but not entirely necessary. As the bikes get lighter they will grab less traction in turns making a slipper clutch essential to avoid tank slapping when hitting the straight and high siding the **** out of yourself. I mean it would look cool, until it was over.
