I really like the looks of the '08...I have one on the way in candy plasma blue. But, I must agree with you on the red '07. When I went to the dealer to put a deposit on the '08, he had a red '07 on the floor. This is the first Kawi I will have owned in over 40 years of riding and I must admit I fell in lust with that red bike. I was gonna order red, but, alas, no red for '08.My red '07 ZX-10 is the shiznit, both in looks and performance.
