Guess the bike.

Now what bike are they talking about here ?
Quote:
However, no motorcycle is perfect, and the ????? does have a couple of notable engine idiosyncrasies. First, it has trouble maintaining neutral throttle. Moving the grip the slightest bit results in the bike abruptly shifting from acceleration to deceleration. In fast corners, a higher gear selection reduces the effect. However, in first and second gear corners, the issue varies from a minor distraction to annoying. Try to maintain a constant speed, and youíll be greeted with abrupt shifts from on- to off-throttle and back again.

Clue..............it's a Suzuki but not ours.

Gixxus got it. The 1250S, tested by MO.
I think we might be seeing this more and more, due to emissions requirements. Unless one of the big 4 can infiltrate the European HQ's and steal the secret formula on how they figured out smooth on/off throttle transitions. I'm not sure I've seen a KTM or BMW have this type of issue, perceived or real.

Yep gixxus got it new Bandit it is.
I had a 1250 Bandit in 2007 it was nothing like what they describe here.
Funny how similar it is to comments on our gsxs1000 as Jeckler said it seems to becoming a trend.

It's not just Japanese bikes. I mentioned previously that the Street Triple I bought new in 2009 exhibited similar characteristics so the trait in the GSX-S didn't bother me as much as some people on here. My memory might be a bit faulty but I think Triumph gave the mapping a tweak which helped a little. There also seems to be some variability between bikes. A friend who has one has the same symptoms as me - a bit lumpy off a closed throttle but not a major irritation.

I thought they said the same thing about our bike. Mine was like that in the beginning but has since smoothed out after breaking in. Either that or I've become so used to it that I don't notice it anymore.

It boggles my mind that the Bandit is only 97 HP from 1250 cc. They brag up the torque but it is only 80 lb-ft. Same as the Gixxus. Still better than Harley though. lol

it's a sales tactic Suzuki are using where the snatchy throttle gives it a more powerful bike feeling and the sense of it wanting to go faster, it's not emissions and they could fix it if they wanted to sell less bikes that still have the same Hp and the z1000 or mt09 and the likes would feel quicker

This is a result of what nicka is saying, but mostly an emissions thing.

Have you noticed most of, if not all the new bikes that pass euro 4 emissions have "issues"? Not issues, its the same issue.
