    Hello kpuello. Welcome to the forum and hopefully you stay a while.

    Between the 07 and the 09 I would say pick the one that is the best deal. They are all awesome and for street riding any liter bike will do. The nice thing about the Repsols is that it's only Repsol enthusiasts that can tell the difference. To everyone else, they all look so similar and you will always get compliments.

    I have an 09, but my dream is to also have an 05, 07, and a 15.

    Styling is subjective. Some people like undertail exhausts some prefer underbelly or side-mount. Some say the 09 looks like it got punched in the nose. Some say the 05 and 07 have that J.Lo booty.

    Performance wise, the 08 and up will be faster, but like I said, for just cruising on the street it doesn't really matter. The 04-07 have that hydraulic clutch so it's easier on the hand in traffic for some people.

    Both have the typical Honda CBR trademarks: smooth and reliable.

    As for rarity, I believe only the 2005, 2007 and 2009 were technically limited in number. From 2011 on they made as many as they wanted.

    A lot of people like the 2007 for sentimental reasons because Nicky Hayden had just won the MotoGP championship in 2006. And now that he has passed away, I wonder if the value on 2007's will go up.

    Tracksol that's a great assessment man thanks. Do you think an 09 w 8000 miles for 6700 is a good deal? The bike looks good, i just thought the mileage was a bit high

    Ok Kelvin, lets talk hard facts. True Repsols are only built every 2 years on the odd numbered year. Despite what some might tell you, mechanically there is absolutely no difference between a Repsol and a regular CBR 1000RR. In terms of true limited edition, only the '05 '07 and '09 are serialized. No one outside of Honda truly knows how many they made for each of these years, But the last 4 digits of the vin number are the number bike rolled out. This only applies to the afore mentioned 3 years. Each Repsol platform, '05 '07 and '09 was the debut of whatever technological goodies Honda had cooked up for that year's CBR 1000RR. THEY ARE ALL PHENOMINAL BIKES!! The '05 is the original, the '07 is the pretty one, but the '09 is where they got it right. The proof of this is clearly visible in the fact that Honda drastically changed the CBR 1000RR between '05 and '07 and again between '07 and '08. But the '09 platform has been the standard that all CBR 1000RR's have been built to, up to the current bike. (the '17. Give or take some suspension changes.) ) The fact that this was the first time Honda ever allowed a liter bike platform to run for 8 years should tell you everything you need to know. I am being serious here and not just trying to get a rise out of my '07 brothers. But performance wise, the '09 is the superior bike (by a long shot,) in every way. It's lighter, faster, makes more power and is better handling than any other Repsol. That includes the '11 '13 and '15. (The '09 is 2lbs lighter than the '11, '13 and '15 but makes the same HP.) The only CBR 1000RR to out perform the '09 platform is the current 2017 bike.

    Great answer Dave!! I'm 100% with you on that one!

    Also, pick a bike that feels good to you. If you and the bike don't fit well. You won't be able to ride it well.
    When in doubt, power out!

    Kelvin, buy the one you fall in love with!! No matter which Repsol you get, you not be disappointed with it's performance or with the attention it brings you!! If you are looking at an '05 '07 or '09, you can call Honda USA with the vin# and they'll be able to verify if the bike is truly a factory built Repsol, or not.

    So there are other NY'ers here! Sweet. I'm in Suffolk county.

    As for the bike, get the one that makes you the happiest. Not many of us will ever maximize the performance potential of the bikes we have!

    Hey Tom, I'm in Suffolk County pretty often. Either playing shows with my band, or I ride out to hang with friends, I also love Nicky's on the Bay in Bayshore, and I'm a sucker for Long Island Girls.......

    I work about 2 miles from Nicky's and go to the Bayshore Marina for lunch pretty much daily with the bike..lol. If you see a 16 Repsol it's probably me. I bought mine at Crossbay in Bayshore.
    Never love anything so much that you cannot leave it on a moments notice..except your Repsol..
