I've heard a lot of things about the possible changes for 07, body work, MotoGP style exhaust, maybe a redesigned 599 and/or gearbox (hopefully with a slipper), possibly fly-by-wire throttle. Anyone have any good photoshop renderings or rumors about it? This looks good to me:

Yes you went a little too far on that limb, you notice a huge difference with a slipper clutch. When you downshift from lets say 5th gear down to 3rd the slipper clutch allows the rear wheel to catch up with the engine speed resulting in a smooth progression, where without that slipper clutch you get rear wheel chatter. I am no motorcycle mechanic and know little about bikes except this and a few other things. Go try out a bike with a slipper and one without.

I'll go farther down the limb and guess you don't know why I said that.
