So, thinking of changing my 06. for 07. + little cash.
How's 07. compared to 06.; if someone who owned botch can say a bit?

I know it's not anything radical, but is there any noticable diference in handling or feeling of the bike?
Is there any magic about 07. or is it basicaly the same bike?

It's not the same bike...the 07 is lighter and has more midrange than previous years. They both handle great though but having a lighter bike is always nice.

In 2007 the bike was redesigned. To an experienced rider it will be very noticeably improved over the 2006.

More midrange power as mentioned with better peak power as well.
Better ergos......a bit more comfortable.
Better brakes.
Much improved handling and front end feel / feedback.

The 2006 was a solid bike but in 2007 the CBR ran rings around the competition.

You'll be amazed at the 07'. I noticed alot of differences...especially the midrange and skinnier ergos. You'll find you sit further back on the 07'...which is much more comfortable.
