Slower and Slowers NEW 2019 GSXS-S bike

Hi All,
For those who are wondering and no one really is I know, but that doesn't stop me posting it up anyway, does it ?

The winner for 2019 so far is the 2019 GSX-S 750 in the better of the 2 evils -Triton Metallic Blue over Matte Black. (Why NO White that I really wanted Suzuki Australia ???)
So it's the Moto GP Blue.
It will be just a slower bike for sure, that's the way with Blue. But far better looking (to me) than the on-road stealth fighter Matte Black option.
I suppose they all can't be in the Red & Black Go Faster colour's that the vast majority prefer

Here's a picture from a sales brochure of my first bike in I bought in 1972 below, and the newbie for 2019. There have been 80+++ newbies since in between (lost count.).

Rob.

Looks nice! All she needs is a slip on! I am a big fan of the Suzuki blue. Mine is red and I like it but a part of me longs for the blue.

Is your Red the plain low shine enamel red ?
That's what we got in 2017 in Au and it's proved a dud colour, as the Matte Black option was a lot more popular.
So many Dealers across the Continent are stuck with them, still unsold.
The Indian's (the real one's) got their's a while after us, and got the same metallic Red that's on the 1000. Actually, R & Black combo is like the 1000, and it just pumps, just as our last year's Blue & Black did.

A Question for jjsemperfi,
Does your rear shock have a grey plastic tube sandwiched between the spring and the damper body ?
On earlier red one, I don't remember it but then I wasn't looking to remember that when I adjusted the sag on the test ride a few years back.
There no exhaust pipe around there like on V twin's rear header, but the shock may be common part to another bike.
I've wished for one on the SV650 Gladius because of radiant heat transfer into the damper.

Yes Sir, mine has that gray plastic tube. Never noticed it before, hadn't had any issues with my suspension on this bike. Feels good to me.
