I love the 05 and 05 only as far as older r6's go but the 06 is were it at IMO the exotic racer is captured in the 06 body style and if you mod it right it gets better and better :fact

the raven is a totally different machine than a regular r6. it's not the ordinary blue, silver, red, yellow...it's a RAVEN....idiot

The 05. Unless you're a trackday superstar the 06 isn't worth the compromises. The 06 is focussed too narrowly on track prowess for regular street riding, making it uncomfortable for bimbling down the road. As far as looks, personally I prefer the looks of the 05 too. The newer ones aren't really ugly, per sé, but I just don't like them as much.

I got an 05 and I love it! I have ridden an 06 several times but was not impressed at all. It was too uncomfortably high off the ground compared to my 05. Track bike for sure. Both bikes are hott!

I own an o5 raven and I love it. I like the looks, the power and the riding position. I don't get fatigued from long rides. It sits slightly lower and more upright so it is better for the street. If you are gonna take people with you on the bike then get O5. I do like the looks of the O6 with no passenger pegs and GP exhaust. Oh and O5 or the r6s is cheaper!

06 for sure. IMO 10000000% better looking. Better handling. i think the 06 makes the 05 and olders look like mopeds. jsut my TWO cents. :YEA
i agree. older than 06 looks outdated IMO
