First R1

Good afternoon gentleman! Been riding an R6 for about 5 years now and would like to step up to an R1 next season. My price range is about $6000 so I'm looking for a Raven between 05-08. Anything to look out for in bikes in this timeframe? Pros cons to these years? Any advice is appreciated.

05-08 consist of 2 different gen R1's so take a close look and see what body style you like more. check out the bikes for sale on here. best way to see feed back and honest sellers IMHO

Hey maybe I am biased but the 04 is a great choice. The 04 - 06 are the same generation. You could probably get a nice 04 with some mods for 5k with low miles.
