I'd stay away purely on the look alone, nose fairing looks like someone walked up and punched it in the face.haha.
+100They're performance machines separated by a year of improvements, how much more are you really wanting out of it? You can always make it faster..but you can't change the style of it.
I have an '07, she is pure sex in machine form...haha
So you bought the earlier version for Bike Night posing? :th_SmlyROFL:Yeaaaah that front is the reason I went with an 06 07. It's the all time sexiest. I go to bike nights all the time. People don't even look twice at the 08+ CBRs :stirpot: walk right by it and come talk to me and complement the pure sex that my bike is.
Nope, because I wanted a Honda and it was the only one that did not look like thisSo you bought the earlier version for Bike Night posing? :th_SmlyROFL:
Fair enough, we agree to disagree then. I had three R1's of different vintages and got compliments on each. Keep attending your Bike Nights. :wave: Me, I prefer track duty regardless of what the bike looks like. :thumbsup:Anything Yamaha :throwup:
If I wanted "more performance" I would have gone with the 08 09 ZX10R but I do care about how ugly it looks. So I went with the dead sexy 06 CBR.
Don't compromise performance for what a handful of people think looks better. The 08+ is light years better in every performance aspect of previous years and you won't cook your butt on hot days with an undertail exhaust that looks like a loaded diaper from the back. :thumbsup:Shall i consider an 08? Is there a way I can tell if it burns oil? Shall i just stay away from the 08? And look for a 06 or 07.
There doesn't seem to be any relation to the VIN, the build date and whether or not it burns oil. A really honest seller will tell you. Look into his face, ask if it burns oil and study his reaction to see if he's being truthful.Is there a way I can tell if the bike is burning alot of oil?
You will have to decide for yourself if you like the looks of the 08, no one can decide that you for. It's an updated machine, and it does perform better than previous generations, no one can argue that (although I'm sure they will)How do I know if the 08 I am looking at burns oil? Is there certain Vins, that had the issues with the piston rings?
