there is no 2007 "S" model. The 1000cc "S" F4 model ended in 2006.....the R was the upgraded (engine, wheels, etc..) 1000cc F4 model for 2007 and the R312 is the 1000cc F4 model for 2008...along with the special edition RR 312 1078

No overlap. Only F4S in '06, only F4R in '07.

yeah - brakes, brembos not the nissins, wheels - black spider ones rather then the star ones, different engine - not sure whats different but better!! and obviously the paint job. Brakes are the biggest improvement tho.

ah, very nice. dont know how i missed that. Thanks!

do the brakes really suck that bad with the nissans? for those who have ridden, are the nissans comparable to what? the brakes on my 1000rr were crazy and the brakes on my VFR suck. are we leaning more towards the VFR? i cant imagine them sucking that bad.

The Nissins are perfect for the street, properly bled, strong and very progressive. For the track, some prefer more initial bite.

Ever watch the Flintstones?

Seriously, they're okay. Probably a click down from the Brembos on a 999 or R1 and aren't the overkill of the 1098's.
