Have you seen the new model accessory prices especially the Heated Grips £396 and the crash bungs £365?
Some of the stick on bits don't seem too bad. Suzuki UK Scroll towards the bottom for accessories.

Yes but dealer accessories are always a bit salty, have you seen Triumph prices, but theres tale of 2 extremes here, a mudguard at £382 and a seat for £134!!!

Even if they are sold, I could never find half the accessories for actual sale.
I think a lot of them are limited production runs on new models so after a few months the aftermarket suppliers have started making their own versions which are mostly cheaper. The exception to this was a SV1000 topcase and mount which was a factory only option I purchased for a relative bargain I thought of £178.

Do you speak German? Here is a link to the first independent review I have seen of the new model YouTube
These people were among the first on the ball when the original model appeared and sometimes do reviews in English.

Going off topic but your post got me thinking.
Suzuki should really bring back the SV (faired version).
Use the VStrom engine and name it SV1050S.
Basically doing what the GSXS1000F does but using a VTwin instead.
Full fairing, sporty, meaty VTwin, comfortable for all day ride, can be redlined without losing your license.
What do you think guys?

I watched an MCN Youtube video by Michael Neeves this morning on the Yahama MT-09 SP. Well worth the time watching it as he explains how the chassis really has changed and how that applies to riding.
They have redesigned that bike from the ground up. Lowered the head stock by 30 mm to fix the understeer, new fork internals and a better rear shock to stop pogo out of the corner under power.

When it has got a now prettier front face than the GSX-S with only 1 LED eye; that doesn't say much about the Suzuki styling for me. (I see a lot of Katana in this GSX-S rendition, like a newer Katana).
For about the same money, perhaps a bit more, the MT gives you cruise control, IMU probably 6 way, quick shifter, new better seat, and a TFT display that really legible to see.
I think a person shopping these 2 bikes, would see that Suzuki has done very little, but is now overpriced itself with what is still at it's heart, a 2015 bike now in 2021/22.

Yea I’m the same with the new GSXS 1000, the new style with the front is average looking and the rear end I think looks better on the previous style. Shame they couldn’t really give something special for the new GSXS

I am finding the MT09 SP quite tempting.
The new Suzuki is not quite doing it for me.

I was looking at the 09SP as a second bike, I really miss having a light naked bike, but hard not to want the Duke 890R instead, lighter, better brakes and and better suspension. Both are ugly but the Duke is a little less so.

They would have to improve it greatly, the SV1000 was a dreadful pile of junk, gutless engine, poor brakes and pogo stick suspension. A great idea/concept of a bike but they got it so wrong.

I am finding the open licenced Naked SV650 that I bought a month or two back such a refreshing change over a 1000 cc 4 cyl bike.
Such light weight, good chassis (that's relative to it's cost) and torque right off the bottom and a HP kick in at mid revs of 6000. That air box induction sound is just like the GSX-S1K, but a bit more muted.
Sure it's a very budget focused bike compared to the big 4's, but it moves my riding back to when it took more skill to just than rev, lean, and then brake and repeat the cycle.
Glad I bought it, now It's a likely keeper; just like the Gladius, only a lot better in chassis suspension set up and looks.

I have just had a trade in offer of £4,500 against a new 2021 GSX-S1000 from a local dealer. My bike is 6years old 40,000 + miles.
Now to see what Yamaha offer ?
