initial version

Some information: to know which is the official version of Gazebo supported by ROS the best way is to check the REP3 document, in this case the section related to ROS Kinetic

Gazebo is an official package both in Ubuntu and Debian. For example, gazebo in Ubuntu Xenial is version 7.0.0. If you are using Ubuntu, it does not allow to update packages (few cases for exceptions to this rule) once one distribution is released so you can only get the version 7.0.0 in a system using ubuntu standards repositories + ROS repo.

Answering your question: it is not possible to get new gazebo7 versions without using the osrf repositories. Note that you can have ubuntu + ROS + osrf repositories all together. Adding the OSRF repo should not break any existing package on ROS or Ubuntu.
