Looks good! But doesn't look like the motor changed at all.

That's EXACTLY what I expected. They were very happy with their engine, specially with last years. Would be crazy to try to change the engine.

I was expecting it too. I just had a little hope that they'd give it the titanium fracture connecting rods that are in the R1 or the magnesium covers.

Oh, and add the new subframe to your list on the first post.

Re: 2017 R6 is OUT!!!

It is sweet. For some reason I was expecting more. Maybe that is wrong of me, I dunno. I prefer the 06-16 looks-wise, but the new one still looks good. I like the things they added, but I just expected the motor to get some updates. Odd that it didn't change, IMO. I realize the 16 motor is 'good enough' but just how things are, with vehicle updates, I figured it would get improved somehow. I'm sure it is a great bike. It doesn't make me want to ditch the 3rd-gen for it immediately, however. It will be cool to see them popping up and seeing what people think though. But I don't see myself getting one anytime soon.

Yeah I see where you are coming from. I honestly think this is as much as you can expect from a 600cc budget. Would have been perfect for me if they added that stock quick shifter. They said pre-wired, which I am assuming means a quick shifter can easily be added but it is not currently on it.

Sticker went up $1200 bucks….to start. Justifiable, considering all the new electronic goodies. I like it, but like AH said…..not enough to rush out & buy one…..in March

My last bike (R6) was stolen from me... Seeing how I don't have a bike, this is my golden opportunity.
I want to discuss colors, but I guess it would be better to wait a little until a lot of pictures get posted. I was very excited to see white, but the greenish yellowish wheel ruins it for me. I wanted to mod it for the red/white look similar to the 09 color.
