RipperFox, '07 was the last year for the R and so far there has been no talk of a new model. Honda has been racing the CRF450X at Baja with much success, so it doesn't appear to be much incentive to go back to big.

There are still some dealerships with the '07 R model on the floor. I had considered one when I got the L. I just liked the reliablity of the L and the fact I didn't have to spend extra money to make it legal. If you're really set on getting one, be prepared to drive to get it or pay to have it shipped, unless you go used.

Oklahoma Honda/Suzuki in Del City was going to try to order one in for me back in November. If you're committed, you might give them a call or get back with Shawnee. They may be willing to go out on a limb for a repeat customer.

Honda hasnt made any changes to the L or R in many many years... they abandoned them years ago.
