'07 Vs. '08+ 250R Impressions Please

I've got a good deal on an 07 in perfect condition and I am thinking about pulling the trigger. Has anybody ridden both? If so, what are your impressions on the two? Do they ride much differently?

I haven't ridden the newer model, but Vtec44 has owned both. Try sending him a Private Message or an email if he has it listed anywhere. I don't think he visits the site that often.

If you feel like you've outgrown your 250, you've probably outgrown your helmet too.

Thank you ZMoe. It seems we're the only two to post anything here recently.

I don't think it makes any difference now. I was debating between waiting for an 08+ or purchase a perfect condition 07. And I went with the '07 this morning. She's all black with 1385 miles and not a single scratch. I think I had a great deal. The previous owner was a lady who babied the bike until she decided to move to something a little bigger. At least that's what the seller, a motorcycle mechanic and good friend of one of my closest friend, told me. He's very trust worthy though. I'm glad I pulled the trigger and can't wait to start riding.

I only have the newer model, but I think it's mostly only styling differences. I could be wrong, but I think everything else is almost the same or barely changed. The styling difference is big to me, I think the old model is ugly and the new is one of the most beautiful sportbikes period.
