just a question

hey guys i am currently on a cbr 600 F4I and have been looking at getting an RC51
i was looking at an 02 and then i cam across an 06 RC51 in black on black on craigslist
are they the same bike or did they change them from the SP2

basically is the 06 better then the 02 or are they the same?
i am new to the RC51 thats why im not very informed

On average, that 06 is worth about $1000 more than the 02.
Except for color, I know of no differences between the 02 and 06.

It's a little early for Madbuyer. He'll be along shortly to claim the 03's superior speed....

Hey, mad's not the only '03 around here Oh and I totally concur with his sentiments. Ditto on the '06 if she's sweet tho.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
