Am I the only one interested in this bike. Right now I have a 04 636 and I want to pruchase a 1000. I like the 06 10 but I dont like the colors they offer. I'm going to wait until the 07 models come out to see what is what. If it comes in the zx14 red I will get it, if not then I will be getting the 07 r1 if it changes. No need to worry fellas I will be keeping my 636. If you have any info or pics please post them

That is not a real picture. Yamaha is only using yellow this year because it is their 50th aniv. It is the only year they are going to offer yellow. Sorry to bust your bubble.

If you're talking about the 06 10R, It's not Orange. It's "Pearl Solar Yellow"

Dont get me wrong I love the zx10r, I just dont like the colors they offer this year. From what I've been hearing (and what I read in the new Motorcyclist Mag) The 07 R1 should be the shit next year. All I'm saying is that if the 07 zx10r comes in a color that I dont like, I will be buying the 07 R1 if they change it.

There you go....!!!! :D:D

The 10R in "Pearl Solar Yellow" (i.e. orange for the rest of us) is absolutely fabulous....!!!! Best damn looking bike this year by far.....!!!!! From what I hear it kicks ass big time....!!!!

Yes I read it. Unlike MCN I have found that when motorcylist prints a picture regarding a new model they are on the mark....

did you catch what bike was on the front cover :D [:p]

This bike in yellow is a work of art.........

Check out Solar Yellow in the sun....best factory paint on a bike I have seen...orange yello under artificial lights...sun brings out the metal flake and really turns it yellow...maybe thats why its named Solar Yellow....the paint on the frame and swingarm is just as good.

I still can't get over the 06 10R's headlights, I saw one yesterday while I was at Lowes and I puked in my mouth. The 14's are just as bad if not worst. +1 for cyberdos, just buy the bike you want and have it painted the color you like instead of settling for a bike that is made in your color.

dude.... you're saying you'll either move up to a 1000cc or if you don't do that, get something 400cc even BIGGER than that? day and night difference.

that's like going from walking to a scooter.. then going from the scooter to a jet :D

That 'concept' of the R1 is Honda 1000RR headlights, 06 R6 side, and 06 Gixxer 1k tail. The worst traits of three bikes rolled into one. [:M85]

I agree, the 10R in Solar Yellow is gorgeous.

I have alawys like the ergos and styling of the yami r1. however I am extremely happy with my 06 zx 10r, besides its a great trade off for a bike that is stronger, smoother and more powerful plus more comfortable than the yami's
