Congrats on the new '07. They have gotten such great reviews, seems like a very smart bang for the buck new bike purchase.

As far as the difference between FZ1 generations, the Gen 1 uses the original R1 motor, tube frame and carbs, while the Gen II uses an 04-06 R1 engine, aluminum box frame and FI.

Which bike is "better" is a subject of endless and usually hilarious debate and fun making for the members of this forum. The Gen II is unquestionably a more modern design than the Gen I, but the Gen I really is one of the best all around sporty/standard just get on it and ride street bikes ever made. The Gen II tilts a little more toward sport, while the Gen I is happy to occupy that super standard bike sweet spot that many find so appealing. It would be cool to own both!
With experience of a tortured youth, we turn up the music and go in search of the truth.

See the link in my sig for differences (which gen would you prefer?) - I have both (I actually have three but don't tell my wife!!)
'01 FZ1 set up for distance
'07 FZ1 set up for fun
(both in the *faster* blue)

Which would you prefer?
