Well as comparison, I was recently trying to sell my 08' with 1100 miles on it... Mint, showroom condition, with after market good tires with 500 miles on it, aftermarket slip on exhaust and it was nearly impossible for me to get 7500 for it.. I think the best offer i got was for $6800...
I bought the bike last june for $10k.
An 07' with 2-4k miles will probably run you somewhere around $5000-6500
Not a fan of the mode selector (s-dms)
It might be suitable for a first time rider, but like i said before it will just add more steps to getting used to your bike... YOu will have to adjust gradually to each mode
If you are already riding around in SBGs bike w/o the mode selector, you will be fine without it...
Now on the other hand the 08s are very similar to the 06+, If you want an entirely different gixxer (better, some might add) look into a 00-03 gixxer... Those things are freaking comfy and beasts!!!
If you want the new body style I would say to stick with a 07+ gixxer
If the s-dms is something you really want then obviously the 08+
