thanks for your comments!
Idk if you read it or not but I think I can get the 2012 in the pics for 5k. Asking is 5500.
I hear you on your point. The title is my only real issue.
I’m kind of bias. I love the 06/07 style so much. I revamped my 04/05 just so I could have it to look like the 06/07. Some said it wasn’t worth the trouble. But if it’s something you want. Who cares what others think. At the end of the day. Do what makes you happy. The 06/07 over any bike would make me happy. But that’s just my opinion. Hope this helps.

I might not have the popular opinion here, but I sold my 2006 1000RR and bought a 2018. So far, as a street-only bike, I prefer the 2006.

Ive never ridden anything in-between those years, but I can say with complete certainty the 2006 is a much better street bike than the 2017-2019. Low end and mid range are substantially better. My 18 doesn’t make any power until near 7k, and in 1st gear, I’m already speeding at that RPM on most city streets.

The 08-11 and 2012-2015 bikes might still have the same ‘street able’ tune as the 2006 but I’m not sure. Point is if you want a good street bike, don’t hesitate to look to the older models. Since you’ve already owned a 2006 you have the familiarity. And that year is, in my opinion, one of the best looking 1000RRs.

Thank you! I’m kinda leaning that direction to be honest with you.
