need opinions

hey all- been gone a while- I feel like a newbie again. I guess I never really lost that status to begin with...anyway, I finally have the $ saved for a new bike. (some of you may remember me rambling (crying) on about my Kawasaki getting stolen last November) I'm trying to decide between the 50th anniversary Yellow R6 and the Raven R6. what do you guys think? I plan to buy in the next few weeks!! I live in Houston but will probably be going to Mississippi ( lakehill motors ) to make the purchase. Best price I have found within reasonable driving distance. They want $8999.99 out the door for the yellow anniversary R6. Opinions?

50th anniversary Yellow R6 its a unique color scheme...definitely stands out among the sea of blue, green, red, black, silver bikes.

Until I saw the Yellow R6 in person, I didn't think the color scheme was all that. Then I saw it at the last motorcycle show and it was gorgeous.....

Doesn't the anniversary model have some performance perks as well as a cool color scheme? Or are the Raven and Anniversary the exact same except for color?

I gotta vote Raven. I love the blacked out look of that sucker. I'm not really down w/ yellow but it is different and collectable.

Don't get me wrong, the anniversary is not an ugly duckling. But the blacked out look is just sweet. complimented well with the red accents.

the side fairings look disturbing. looks like the designers forgot about it and just slapped something on. i would vote for the raven. all black hides that disformity.

Thx for all the replies... I think I'm leaning towards the Yellow R6... one reason is I live in Houston and I'm scared the black is going to be too hot. - ??? we'll see- i guess when I go to the dealer- i'll see which one pops out at me first. I can't wait.

That's the way I do it when unsure of colors to pick.
