    Meets current EPA standards.
    California version meets current CARB standards and may differ slightly due to emissions equipment.
    Class-leading power-to-weight ratio for outstanding acceleration and handling.
    Smaller, lighter, more compact inline four-cylinder engine.
    Improved midrange performance and enhanced peak power.
    Significant weight reduction in engine and chassis.
    Repositioned transmission shafts within crankcase allow for shorter engine.
    New lightweight, forged-aluminum pistons incorporate special shot peening for added toughness.
    Lightweight magnesium head cover.
    New, single exhaust valve-springs.
    Smaller, lighter neodium magnet ACG.
    New transmission gear ratios.
    Smaller, lighter clutch.
    New front-brake vertical-piston master-cylinder system.
    Lighter weight stainless steel four-into-one exhaust features new inline-exhaust valve to control exhaust pressure for maximum performance.
    New intake-air control valve (IACV) minimizes torque reaction and smoothes response to small throttle changes through gradual reductions of air and fuel intake when the throttle is opened and closed.
    New non-resonance knock sensor maintains optimum spark advance while constantly monitoring combustion performance during mid- to high-speed operation.
    New nose-mounted ram-air induction directs fresh, cool air to a higher-volume airbox.
    New smaller and lighter Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD).

    Newly designed Fine Die-Cast (FDC) frame uses four large castings for lighter weight.
    Improved mass centralization.
    Redesigned radiator with compact dimensions improves cooling capacity.
    All-new bodywork enhances handling and performance.
    Handlebars raised 10mm for improved rider comfort.
    Center of gravity revised for more neutral response and easier side-to-side flickability.
    New, compact instrument design.
    Exciting new colors--Pearl White/Silver and Ultra Blue Metallic/Silver--join Red/Black and Black as color options.

    Unique features
    Unit Pro-Link(TM) rear suspension and swingarm design inspired by RC211V(R).
    Dual Stage Fuel Injection (DSFI) system features two injectors per cylinder.
    High-revving engine redlines at 15,000 rpm.
    MotoGP-style RC211V center-up exhaust system.
    Radial-mount front brake calipers combined with radial actuated master cylinder.
    41mm Honda Multi-Action System (HMAS) inverted front fork.
    Centrally located fuel tank increases mass centralization and allows more compact frame design.
    Line beam headlights feature three-piece reflector design.

    Liquid-cooled DOHC 16-valve 599cc four-stroke inline four-cylinder engine features oversquare bore and stroke of 67mm x 42.5mm.
    Intake port surface treatment revised for improved efficiency.
    Oil jet relocated beneath piston for additional friction reduction and cooling.
    Iridium-tip spark plugs improve fuel combustion and performance.
    DSFI system features 40mm throttle bodies and two injectors per cylinder--one upper and one lower--controlled by an electronic control system (ECU) that senses rpm and throttle opening. Lower injector enhances rideability while upper injector improves top-end horsepower.
    Denso 12 hole injectors deliver finely atomized fuel mixture for optimum combustion efficiency and power.
    Auto enrichment system is integrated into programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) module, eliminating the need for a manual choke.
    Two-stage ram-air system provides high volume of cool air to the airbox for linear power delivery and incredible engine performance.
    Cylinder head features angled valve insets to improve airflow.
    Cylinder head features two springs per intake valve and one spring per exhaust valve for optimum high-rpm valve operation and durability.
    Direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation ensures high-rpm performance and durability with 16,000-mile maintenance intervals.
    Lighter pistons and lighter, nutless connecting rods contribute to quicker acceleration.
    Double-pivot tensioner for cam-chain durability.
    Right-side starter gears allow increased lean angle.
    Smooth-shifting close-ratio six-speed transmission with new gear ratios is closely matched to the engine's powerband.
    118hp (at the flywheel) at 13,500rpm

    41mm inverted HMAS cartridge front fork features spring preload, rebound and compression damping adjustability for precise action.
    Unit Pro-Link rear suspension system is patterned after RC211V GP racer. In this two-piece shock system, the upper shock mount is contained within the swingarm rather than the frame. With no top frame mount for the shock, this unique system reduces negative suspension energy from being transmitted into the frame, allowing optimum frame rigidity and improved rideability out of corners.
    Braking system features twin four-piston radial-mounted front calipers, dual 310mm front discs and a single 220mm rear disc for optimum stopping power.
    New vertical-piston master-cylinder system produces superior leverage ratio at the front brake lever for higher braking efficiency with excellent feel and controllability. This layout permits the use of a longer brake lever, which means more braking force with less effort from the rider.
    Lighter aluminum steering stem.

    Additional Features
    Industry-leading ergonomic design features maximum rider comfort for minimum fatigue in all riding conditions.
    Centrally mounted 4.8-gallon fuel tank is positioned low in the frame, increasing mass centralization and allowing a more compact design.
    Plastic tank shell cover protects tank and airbox.
    Line-beam headlights feature three-piece reflector design utilizing two H7 bulbs for optimum light distribution and a unique compact design.
    New instrumentation is very compact and features LCD panel with tachometer, odometer, twin tripmeters speedometer, fuel gauge and clock.
    Attractive, hollow-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels feature race-spec 3.5 x 17.0-inch front and 5.5 x 17.0-inch rear dimensions.
    One-piece fan assembly for maximum cooling efficiency.
    Maintenance-free battery.
    Optional seat cowl.
    Compact rear cowl storage compartment for U-type locking devices (lock not included) under the passenger seat.
    Pivoting, aerodynamic mirrors.
    Integrated ignition-switch/fork lock for added security.
    Convenient push-to-cancel turn-signal switch.
    Transferable one-year, unlimited mileage limited warranty; extended coverage available with a Honda Protection Plan.

    I pulled this one from the official HRC USA website... no bull here!!
  4. Not bad looking. I think I would prefer the 06 look tho. But still normal clutch? Its not a sliper one?

    Hmm, kinds looks like the Gixxer600 with an undertail. Lots of color options which is nice. How much lighter is it than last years model? They look good.

    According to Honda the 06 dry weight is 361, the 07 is TBD.....They must still be trying to shave some weight off of it.
    They do look nice though.
  7. Oh Shea... no slipper clutch. We should go back and find all the posts where you talked about getting the 07 becauase it'll have a slipper clutch. ;D
    I agree with Tanman, the fairings are looking rather Gixxer-ish. All in all... I like it.
  8. I never said it would have a slipper clutch I said I would expect it to and that I hope it would

    I found (European news release) the weight listed at 341 lbs - that's 20 lbs lighter than the '06!!!
  10. it is 20lbs lighter
  11. Oh I know. I felt bad that it won't. I read on ISB that you're still getting one though. Is that true??

    I was checking out some info on the Honda site and thought I recognized the scenery from a few of the pictures and then I came across this one. That's definately MMP!!!

    And here's a shot without the plastics on it.

    Here's the gauge cluster. I don't really know how I feel about this yet.
  15. Gague cluster looks alright... According to literbike tradition, the GSX-R1000 is due for a re-design in 07.

    Gauge cluster looks good, is that a shift light on the left side of it??

    What is the redline supposed to be on this thing? I heard it was higher than the 06. And I thought that banging 13.5 against the rev limiter sounded sweet (well, not when the rev limiter kicked in, but at the upper reaches...)
  17. The rev is 15,000 same as it was on the 05-06
    Yes I will get one I just have to decide on a color
    I dont think the gsxr1000 needs a redesign this year as scheduled I think it should just stay the way it is for another few years.

    Hoz were the hell do you keep finding these photo's

  19. the one I read said 15,000 which is the same as mine
