wr450f 05,06 vs 07

(Its kind of a ritual now when I ride with my buddy, he tells me to watch this, he presses the magic button on his red bike and I flip him off and then we ride.)
My riding is becoming more aggressive I tend to stay off the fireroads and ride mostly singletrack trails, with lots of rocks and with trees scattered through them. I realize with the two model changes the bikes have gotten lighter on the top side as well as having a flatter seat, but is the new 07 worth the full list price? It feels lighter even though it isn't in reality, on the showroom floor. Any thoughts?
Confused as to what model and year to get. I do know I want the e button.

FarmerJ, since you're currently on a 426, a switch to any of the 450's will likely be a big improvement. Given the green sticker issue, it's a good idea to stay with an 05/06, even if you don't live in California, because you just never know. When Yamaha puts out a bike with a proven EFI and an aluminum frame, I think my skepticism will abate, but we ain't there yet folks, so I'm standing steadfast with my original position.
Please keep in mind this is just my opinion and you know what they say about those. You '07-ers can flame me if you like, but I won't dignify any attacks with a response, so you may want to think twice about wasting the effort...SC
