sweet...thanks for the video man... they still didn't give all of the details...my boss just called me from the Honda show and said it was the sweetest sportbike he had ever seen... and he is a yamaha fan.. he didn't give be to many details because he hadn't got to see it up close...but I guess it has a electronic steering damper...they shaved 16lbs off it I believe he said...and raised the red line to 15500 or somewhere around there...they claimed it would be more powerful than the r6 and smoke everything  else out there... but ya.. that's coming from honda so they would say that.. They haven't let me down yet though... can't wait to get all the details!
-race/street bike in progress!

ATTN:Looking for rashed plastics...check out my post in the wanted section..or pm me

hate to say it, but i'm not impressed.  hope it has the performance numbers.

What aren't you impressed with and what were/are you expecting?

I think they did a fine job and continue to have the best looking bike on the market!

That bike looks nice as hell. It's a look you have to get used to, but damn that shit is so damn sexy. Wonder how the 1000rr will look? I sure hope they have better colors in the US.
DSMs & CBRs are the best....!

Features & Benefits

New for 2007

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.
Engine/Drivetrain

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.
Chassis/Suspension

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.

Thanks for the list of updates wolf.

That sounds much better than the video, but I think Yamaha still had a more technology loaded bike.

I wondr how that new intake is going to work, because I remember some GP bike utilizig an intake system that leaves one cylinder running to reduce engine braking. I wonder if that is what they incorporated here. I doubt it though.

Still no slipper and if IIRC the redline is lower not higher.  Not impressed.  16 lbs isn't much; I need to lose 40 lbs myself so me losing weight makes more of a difference than the bike losing it. 

1000RR won't change, it just changed last year.

the redline is 15700rpm it is higher.
