Yamaha already has their '07 R6S listed

Along with a bunch of other '07's minus the real R6 and R1 of course. Just a new paint scheme, that's all. And 43mm forks instead of 41mm. What do you think of the scheme?

Same as the '06 R6S. More geared for everyday riding as the real R6 is geared towards the track and more experienced riders.

It's pretty much the 04 R6.

It's cheaper and caters to people who don't know any better.

Basically. Since the new R6 is expensive it might turn people off to it, so they need to put this out there so their sales in the 600cc class won't suffer too much. The dealers won't tell you why, but the new one is for more experienced riders. They'll still try to sell you the new, or "real", R6 before the R6S proly.

Just seems silly to me. If people like the 04 R6...buy an 04 R6. If you want a 07 R6...then buy a fuggin 07. Why buy a new model year with an old engine.

I don't think either of them is for new riders, but people will still buy whatever they want.

some people want new bikes, you are thinking about this too logically. When do companies ever do anything that is logical.

Maybe not, but the '04 was my first bike and it went fine. Sure, i went down once, but that can happen on the small ones too.
