Jap Crap

After all the hupalar of the Fireblade front, i think its by far the best looking allround, BUT the RSV4 steals the show hands down even with a bigger price tag, and all without the knowledge of what the s1000rr is like in street clothing.  I think I'll jump ship to Italian bikes from now on, the japs have completely lost their sence of design with form and function in bike building (must have something to do being japs and not eyeties which equals lack of passion for flare in the styling which the Italians NEVER loose or leave out) and thus the last couple of years they have either lost it completely or gone drasticaly backwards and not realised it.  SHAME

oh my god this has got to be the biggest disapointment in recent biking history .So maybe it will be fast n handle like a classy whore but it looks like a complete dog.Those exhausts are apauling why do we have to buy a bike thats had suzukis top designers create it and then,  have to buy after market exhausts and extras to actually make it look ok? its so much the same as all the other gixxer1000s.

being the owner of a 2000 r1 i was going to join the "dark side" and swap it for a k9 not now youve just lost a sale suzuki!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ill be buying a 2009 r1 or either save some cash and get a k6 gixxer1000

cmon suzuki dont employ a designer who brings a guide dog to work!!
