Howdy from Wyoming!
I am about to make the leap to Yamaha and I would like to know if there is a reason to buy a 08 R1 over an 07? Have there been that many improvements that would justify the cost.

Thanks alot,

Doc 1

Only difference in the 07 to 08 is the price and the stickers/colors. If you dont care about the color scheme or dont fell like paying an extra 2,000-3,000 to have a black one get a 07

Pick your favorite color scheme, and that's what year you should buy.

To answer the question directly, there is nothing mechanically different between the 07 and 08.

So like everyone has said, it just comes down to which color you like most.

Thanks everyone! I am going to go get a 07. The discounts are going to be pretty big. The money saved will go towards exhaust and electronics.

Welcome to the forum. I would go for the '08 unless you can find a really low price '07.
