Goodbye cb400sf. Hello GSXS

Hello everyone!

After much deliberation I traded in my 2010 Honda cb400sf which I'd riden for 3 years for new 2016 GSXS1000. Naked. Blue.

Initially I was planning on buying 2019 white model but then I came across the new bike that's been sitting at the dealer for about 3 years. It was about 250 000 yen cheaper (about 2300 us dollars). I didn't really care about slipper clutch or a couple of extra hp so I figured I'd buy it. Btw I live in Japan and bikes here aren't as cheap as some people may think.

What I did care about was the notorious "snatchy throttle" which some folks reported had been somewhat fixed in latter models. In hopes that the bike I was going to buy wouldn't have that problem and that ECU's of the bikes for domestic market are different I signed the papers. I will get my hands on the bike on Sunday and get back to you on how it actually feels to ride it.

You'll love it. If it has the throttle issue, it's an easy fix. Welcome to the group!

First impression it's a great bike! Haven't experienced any problems with the throttle.

Sounds like you got a great deal and a bike with no throttle issue is a plus. Enjoy and post up pics as you mod it.
