Video: Suzuki GSX-R1000 first ride

The Suzuki GSX-R1000 now produces the most midrange of any 1000cc superbike. What's more, weight has dropped by 2kg and it's gained Brembo brakes and comes with revised big piston suspension. Suzuki has gone back to what made the GSX-R legendary and simplified the way to a quick lap time. In other words: stop for the corner, get the bike turned...

2 sides

Seems great for us mortals but why would you pay for a brand new machine when for 6-8 thousand pounds you could get a great second hand bike that would do the same of not more. Seems like suzuki is way behind its rivals but in saying that I probably couldnt use 50% of that bike.

Make the effort

Sounds like Suzuki are heading in the right direction. This one may be close to my Akrapovic and Ohlins equiped K5. What I am looking for is light weight, quick steering and loads of mid range. Come on Suzuki try harder. If you want my money, bring out something as radical and focused as the K5 was. That was the last time I bought a new bike.

so exciting I will have to go and watch some paint dry. C'mon Suzuki at least tty to make each new iteration a little bit exciting. K3,4,5,6,7,8,90, same, same.

Band-Aids

Band-Aids such as traction control are not needed if the chassis is fundamentally correct, as in this Suzuki and the Fireblade.
