60 years of Suzuki: RGV500 vs GSX-R1000

These two blue and white machines represent the best of the Suzuki best. Right now, the 166bhp, 203kg 2012 GSX-R1000 is the ultimate incarnation of the Japanese firm’s road-going superbike and this 1998 ex-Nobuatsu Aoki RGV500, making 180bhp and weighing just 130kg was one of the last of the fearsome 500cc GP bikes.  One’s a two-stroke V4, one’s a four...

are determined to be offended by pretty much anything. Its whats ruining this country. But as you seem so sure then please explain to me what is so homophobic about calling a cushioned foot stool a poof? That is afterall its name.

Ha ha ha, I've never been called humorless before! There's a first time for everything. The word I think you wanted to use was either Pouf or Pouffe if it was the padded foot stool that you were meaning.

Glad you called Mario out on his offensive comment. Sorry if we're ruining the country for you Mario. Also, 2001 wasn't that long ago, and i think homosexuals did exist back then, i'll have to check! To keep on topics of the bikes, i'm confused, how can a bike weighing a lot less with more power be described as similar performance?

While it is a great piece to read I believe there are some points that are overlooked. First the hp numbers, 169 hp for the stock 1000 and 180 hp for the GP bike. Most stock bikes don't reach advertised horsepower and need additional tuning to get there. I don't have any dynotests at hand of the Suzy 1000 maybe someone here does? But the 180 hp of the GP machine is most likely underrated as Honda's last 500 was over 200 hp All factory's rate they're bikes lower because they don't want to let the competition know how much power they have. This is true even today as most MotoGP bikes are shown having "around" 240 hp while it is common knowledge they are closer to 260 hp...

I would like to make it clear

By saying "People like you" I am refering to the sort of people that spend their time looking for something to be offended by, so that they can beat other people over the head with political correctness. I was not refering to homosexuals. It is entirely possible for someone to be a royal pain in the arse regardless of sexual orientation.
