I paid about 5.8k for my 2007 CBR600RR. I bought it in December 2011 from a dealer. It had zero damage to it, ~6k miles, and had a Power Commander, Toce exhaust system, flush turn signals, fender eliminator kit, Vortex frame sliders, Puig blue windscreen, and integrated rear turn signals. Pretty much everything I planned on doing to it except for maybe some Angel Eyes.
I'm very happy with my 2007. Plenty of power, especially in the midrange, but not overpowering. Super light and trim for a 600cc too, I love it. It's also nice and low in the seat compared to an R6 or ZX6R, which is good, considering I'm 5'7 and some change.
The 2007 will have newer styling, a steering damper, and a more refined engine. Couple that with a lighter body and you have a winner.
If you like the 2004, then by all means buy it, it's still a very good looking machine, I ALMOST bought a orange and black 2006 CBR600RR. I would say don't let price govern your opinions. If you like the 2007 more, but it costs an extra grand, I'd save up my pennies for the 2007, even if that means I can't buy one for another few months, because in the end, I'll be happier with the 2007. That's exactly what I did too, once I saw and sat on that blue and silver 2007, I knew it had to be mine.
