HMM...

I'll stick with my '03 black and red flame... lol

Thanks for the update. I kinda like the silver though. Decent I guess.

im pretty disapointed with the new r6. the one looks so awesome and has a huge upgrade in power. i wish they had kept them looking about the same.

The 2003 R6 is not what I thought it would be. Figured it would have underseats like the R1 as well. Speaking of the R1 though, that thing is bad ass! I love the new styling.

New for 2004:

Remapped fuel injection for improved response throughout the powerband.~ this was introduced last year, maybe it had bugs that they tuned up. though i heard last years is a lot better than the carbs


Larger volume exhaust canister for improved exhaust flow at high rpm. ~Big deal! everyone puts an aftermarket one on anyways...well maybe not everyone... congrats to you still with stock pipes.

New-design 120/60-ZR17 front and 180/55-ZR17 rear Dunlop radial tires deliver excellent grip. I wonder what tire their using now?

I'm wondering why they are still sticking with the 60 front tire! 70 is a winter project for me.

Personally i dont want underseats. They make the rear end of the new honda and the Ducati look big'n'ugly. A nice can and chiseled tail look way better. Especially now the size of cans is increasing for better airflow. If they can keep the depth down twins then maybe.

05 will bring a new r6

We just got the new style in 03, so wait a year

PERSONALLY:

I held on to my 01 because I like it better than the new ones

My next bike will be ano 04 R1

(Actually by the time I can afford it it will be an 05 :roll: )
