Maybe a v4 Not!
Maybe a crossplaine Not!
Maybe a 2020 gsxs with a new headlight? YES :ROFLMAO:
Hey
I know you’re half joking but you bring up a good point.
Suzuki is using a cross plane engine in Moto GP and has been for a few years now.
Why are they still pushing the flat plane engine in their production bikes?

Hey Luko that's why I put that comment Just wishful thinking..
But I had another look at the video and I'm thinking that the bike looks to be in line with the ducati v4 street fighter styling ?
I reckon it's going to be a stripped down gsxr 1000.

Current GSXR engine minus VVT and titanium valves?

What does it look like ?
You can bet it won't look anything gross as Yamaha's re jigged MT09 effort.
I think it will move further towards the GSX-R front end look, BUT Suzuki will jackup the price. Remember how the R was quite reasonable, but now gone up very steeply.
It will get a Katana/R dash speedo head unit, cheaper single piston forks. You know the type, spring preload in one fork, rebound in the other, and one fork with compression.
Anything that looks new, but is cheaper and max's their profits.
Don't expect GSX-R stuff here for nix - just yellow paint on the spring and anodised gold forks and you won't be disappointed.
Wings ?
A free can of Red Bull under the seat.

If it's the same or better than the current model regarding features but with added electronics (IMU etc) and ride by wire with cruise control then i will be elated.
Followed by inconsolable sadness as there's a baby on the way and i'll likely have to surrender my bike for a second car :cry:

Not even close to broke bud. If it ticks all the boxes of things I want I'd consider it. Can't take the money with us when we eventually go 🤷‍♂️
I’m broke lmao


few years back I saw a gsxs or gsxr concept was absolutely beautiful
Can’t find it, was blue
