Keep your mods fairly simple unless you plan on keeping the bike for an extended period, in which case I would urge you to get the Repsol if you love the colours that much. I was debating between a blade and RC51, the blade won over the sexy 51 because I really wanted a blade.... if you're going to have it around for a few years, get what you really want!!!
I do like the repsol colours i am looking at a 2009 model but it is registered 2010. I will be keeping the bike for at least 3 years or so.

Re: CBR1000rr 2009 or 2011

At three years it is really a matter of preference to you. If you like the Repsol scheme that much, is it worth it to fork up the extra cash to have?

As far as modifications go, again, this falls into personal perspective of what is valuable to you. CBER is not a fan of adding tons of aftermarket parts, while Lambchops has actually rebuilt his entire bike customizing many many aspects of it. I would say and exhaust (at least slip/bolt-on) and a power commander are worth the money for a mild increase in power and a smoother power-band. Steel brake lines help with stopping better, and just about everything else falls into the cosmetic department. Even wave rotors are not needed, and do not offer a huge increase in stopping power. Most people that put them on, I think, are merely going for the different look of them, while fewer actually see track time and need the improved binders.
