I used to have first gen. 1000 and few of 1st gen. 650. Last December I got 2013. Already put maybe 700-800 km. I like it. Better in almost every "department". If you have a chance take it for test ride. Does your 2007 have ABS?

You can find quite few posts regarding pre and after 2012 models. Generally speeking - smoother engine and tranny, better brakes, ABS, better suspension, better stock seat (acceptable so far), better fuel economy + new dashboard with all these pretty neat informations. Regarding the insurance my policy also considered it as a sport bike but I don't care as long as the premium is reasonable. In fact I'm paying less for my 2013 then for my 2010 last year.
