I have ridden both and the 07 CBR is a better bike. The R6 is nice and the 08 might be the shit but the 07 CBR is going to be hard to beat. I do agree that the R6 looks much better but I but for performance first.

^x2 you will not be dissapointed whatsoever with the cbr it is honestly the best 600 i have ridden...as far as stock goes

you will get mixed opinions from guys on here about the 06+ R6 but i didnt like the bike that much....it wasnt as smooth as my 05 r6

Really nice looking bike.

I think the guy is not going to be as picky with looks if he is looking for a track bike. I have seen some damn ugly mofos out on the track smoking some real pretty looking R1s, gixxers, etc.

Good luck with whatever you will choose. I read the CBR was a killer for 2007 from among the 600cc bikes (at least for street). I am sure the R6 is an excellent track tool too.

For the track, the r6 is superior.

I've ridden both and I now own an '07 R6 for my track bike.
For what it's worth, they say it's the most technologically advanced production bike ever built. Drive by wire throttle control, slipper clutch (which I don't think the CBR has) and a sick rpm range. Plus, the '07 R6 is really designed to be a track bike anyway.

To be honest, you can't go wrong with either of them; Although, I think the new '08 R6 is going to be the middle weight king this year.
