Well, i can't say about a Raptor 700, but can tell you i just traded my 04 Limited Edition Raptor 660 for an 2009 KFX450R...The biggest difference's i noticed are the following...

Raptor 600- Very torque y, tons of power, comfortable riding, little top heavy, but not too bad..Great trail quad..was very pleased with it.

KFX450R- Very quick out of the hole, extremely fast, excellent throttle response due to the EFI, lighter and lower to the ground, excellent handling characteristics, Over all great performer with excellent power and maneuverability and comes stock with some nice upgrades...Highly recommend it.

never owned a 660 raptor but it is a true 660cc engine, 9.2.1 comp, sohc 5 valve and the 700 raptor is a 686cc, 9.2.1 comp, sohc 4 valve and the 700 weighs in about 25 pounds heavier. i did own a 700 and i did like the bike alot, tons of tq and very good riding but like top gigzter said they are top heavy, i love my kfx 450's.

if you do mostly trail riding and want the more comfortable/easier to ride it ruts n shit quad, then buy the raptor, but if your looking for more of a race quad then go with the kawi.....personally i would buy the kawi over the raptor
