CBR600RR 06 vs 07

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by ltflippy, Sep 21, 2011.

  1. Hi
    I am looking at buying a CBR600RR. However I can afford around 7000-8000 which is about what the second had 06 or 07 models are going for. I have read on wikipedia that there was an engine change between these models. And i know people say test ride and see which one feels better but you cant pick up everything on a test ride.
    Has someone ridden both? Is there a major difference, should i wait for a good deal on an 07 or is the 06 essentially just as good?

    The 07 was a completely new build. Better midrange, ride position and handling. No contest.
  3. 07+ for sure, like Dougz said.
  4. Read the 07 reviews they will tell you what changed.

    Edit: Although the new bike is always better according to mags. Have to keep the advertisers happy.
