Funny, I want to kill the CB with fire but the GSX is much more appealing. Better flow, nicer lines and execution, the GSXS gets the gold.

Nice to compare them. The GSXS has it's mainly ex GSXR followers and Honda will probably have a high proportion of ex CBR riders. Very civilised the Honda in general and in my opinion that's what lets it down. Suzuki are always that bit more on the edge in both performace and style. As is shown in the clip attached.

The Honda has been around for several years. In person, its very nice looking and well finished. I test drive a used one. Very nice, all around.

The power reminded me of my concours 14. No peaks, or valleys, just power when you want it.

As far as fun to ride, I'll bet a sewing machine might have more personality. Not to say it was slow, its not, but very boring.

I had by '11 CB1000R for four years before selling it for the F. It's pretty hard to fault, well built, smooth power delivery, nice handling characteristics. 2008 - 2012 it was up there with the rest, but for me Honda has failed to develop the bike into what it should be now. No TC, no gear indicator on it's digital dash and underpowered in it's class.

Oh, and I knew of only a handful of owners that kept the exhaust.... not only is it a little ugly and very heavy, it's whisper quiet!

I had a ride in CB1000 R and Ducati 821 and S1000. I really like the CB1000 but S-1000 won my heart.
