ill be honest with you guys, i am madly in love with the raven, that is one amazing looking bike, reminds me of the batmobile with how slick and dark it looks! butttt, i might end up getting the charcoal gray since that is the only way i can get a new bike. i know the raven came back in 08 but they are just too expensive. so yea, there ya go, there is my dilemma
im in a similar position, i want a third gen R6, the 06 raven is sick, but newer technology is also better. the grey 07 is very nice too, and i don't have the cash for an 08, but i could sell my 05 and get a used 06 or 07.
what i am doing is waiting and saving and getting the 08 raven in a year or so!!!!! thats what i would do.
