We got the 2005 R6 on the floor at Pacific Yamaha!!!
Took it for a quick ride, basic first impression is that the front end of the bike with the new inverted forks, radial brakes, and 120/70 tire, make the bike feel a whole lot better.
Seating is almost the same as last year, the gauges are the same, and the exhaust is NOT underseat as many had expected.
They even threw in a few extra ponies to help it go a bit quicker.
Over all opinion is that they the made the bike handle and feel a lot better without changing to much of the cosmetics, which is good because all those extra's that you bought for your 03/04 model will all fit. Graphics are nice and clean and nothing on the tank so you can now peel of the decal kit and not have to sand down the gas tank to get of the graphics if you don't like them.
Blue one sitting here right now, others colors should be in soon. I am only here for another 4 days then I am off to a new venture, but feel free to come down and check it out.
