I don't know what came over me but I just traded my '04 for an '05!
I've said all along that I prefer the look of the '04 (tail section) and that hasn't changed but I took this '05 out for a rip and instantly fell in love! It's used with 3,000km on it but in immaculate shape. Brembo master cyclinder, MRA screen, R&G frame sliders and carbon fiber engine covers. ...and it's GREEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finally got a green Kawi!
I know it looks like every other green zx6r on the forum but this one is MINE! Damn I haven't been this excited in a long long time!
Sorry for the crappy night pics, will get some better shots tomorrow.

well i've only ridden for an hour, plan to do more tomorrow but so far i'm pretty impressed!
sems to handle just a bit better than my '04 and a bit more power. this of course could of just been my '04 but the new one definately feels quicker, more agile.
pretty disappointed with the stock pipe though, way too quiet!

some slightly better pics.
you guys wanted to see the brembo and the engine covers.....my camera battery died so i'll get more of the brembo later today.

i'm so impressed with this bike man! i'm not a bike expert nor am i an engineer so i can't explain why but this thing corners much easier than my '04, seems to dig in deeper. steering the bike is also smoother and the throttle is just so precise, no jerking at all. shifting is quicker and smoother as well. as i said before this could be that my '04 wasn't as new or as well tuned as this. either way it's a definate step up. aside from the ugly tail [:0]
