Another Aussie

Hi all,

Just waiting for my Gixxus to arrive. So far the ETA is late September or early October. Long wait but it'll be worth it!

I could have avoided the wait if I picked a Matte Grey bike, but I'd rather wait for the blue.

Based in Brisbane, so when the bike finally arrives, I'll be doing track days on it after I get a slide kit installed on it!

I'm a little disapointed by the insurance price though. It came in at $1200/year (AUD), when my last naked bike was $600/year. The price is actually the same as the GSX-R1000, which is totally dumb.

Anyway, hoping the bike arrives super early, otherwise I'll be bikeless until it arrives!

$1200 is a bit pricey, did you get a few quotes?
It's a lot more competitive these days compared to a few years ago.

Welcome mate. I'm going to be paying about $1400 for insurance through QBE, they were the best priced for me at the time I got the quote.

You guys are lucky having 2 tracks and nice roads so close by

Like matdaddy said, welcome to the Qld/Brisbane Gixxus club...

That's a bit steep on the insurance, how old are you? I'm 31 & best price (& only one for that matter) was from Insure My Ride for A$839.96 w/$1250 excess... Obviously you can reduce the excess but pay more on insurance...

Hey all,

First up, I'm 34, clean riding/licence record, and the cheapest I can get insurance is through Insure My Ride/Swann, and it's $1100-1200. I'm rating 1, and it's still stupid expensive. Insurance changes based on where you live, and other various things they like to use to rip you off.

Second, Suzuki are releasing engine casings but when I contacted them they dont' have a release date. I hate the knobby sliders too, and usually dig into the road and cause more damage to the bike. I'll probably be getting R&G or something from Brisbane Motocycles.

I understand that prices may vary depending on where you live, but that's ridiculous!! High crime area? Insure my ride seems to be the cheapest I've found, let alone the only one which actually has the GSXS1000 on record at the moment.. I'll keep looking though

Just tested it $794.41 with $400 excess with Insure my ride. Guess being in your 40's has its benefits :P
