The CBR500R in the picture has a somewhat different fairing than the one in the magazine. They're similar, but there are differences, especially in the leading edge of the fairing by the headlights.
I think the CBR500R in the "leaked" picture looks quite handsome, especially in that nice arctic white. But that's only one angle, and I certainly haven't been a fan of Honda's recent styling (see also: VFR1200, NT700, etc.). The NC700x is fine, and the CBR250 isn't bad, but I think both the '08-spec Ninja 250 and new Ninja 300 are more attractive. The side view may determine whether it's a purchase next spring or not.
FWIW, I think the naked bike looks quite homely in the leaked pic. YMMV.
