Which should I get: '05 or '06 R1?

I have seen low mile versions of the '05 (lava read) for around £5,500 and '06 (black) for £6,400. Is this a fair price for them?

Should I save the money and go with the '05, or splash out and enjoy the black beauty?

Any ‘Sensible’ advise welcome :stuck_out_tongue:

I’d save the cash on an 05 and used the spare cash on a few choice mods.

Minimal changes on the 06 bike. Minor engine internals added another 3 BHP of power and Yamaha adjusted the swing arm pivot point (raised it by a few mm I believe) to improve steering.
