What is the difference between a Repsol 1000 and a standard 1000RR?

I was looking into getting a 2007 Repsol and didnt know if there was a big differece between the 1000 and the Repsol 1000. Would you guys know of any detail difference other than the color scheme.

I figured that. But I also assumed it had a few add ons because it was a repsol. Basically you are paying 1500 to 2000 more just for a paint job.

Color is the only diff.

Custom paint jobs are expensive. You actually get a price break because the factory is doing the paint job. If anyone were to bring a bike to me to have it race-them painted $1700 is the starting price.

I know custom paint jobs cost a lot. My boy is a painter. macabreair.com is his name. He painted my boys Kawi and that ran him about 1600 or 1700

I painted mine flat black from a dozen rattle cans. My horsepower went negative.

They are charging an extra $2000 for a Repsol there? The Repsol that the local dealer had in here was only $500 more than any of the regular 1000RR's.

Actually there is something to be said for being stealth. I have been going into a rest stop and had police pull in and say that people were calling about a orange bike going too fast.

Try $500. The '07 1000RR is $11,499 for the black, silver, and red. The Repsol is $11,999...
