I would buy it just for the Red Bull🤩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.
A free can of Red Bull under the seat.
Thanks Kassu! It is a beast of a machine . Has your F900R been delivered yet? Pics?Nice move you've made, Manuel.
Lots of us have moved away from the 2016 model.
I have managed to live somehow with it for 5 years, but now I'm glad I've sold it.
Suzuki can't keep the price in check if they will put all the new electronics on the new one.
A liter bike like that which meets the Euro 5 requirements too (e.g. CB1000R, or Ninja 1000SX) is worth more than 13.500 euro here in Europe.
But I'm pretty sure, everyone here will keep their eyes wide open on the offer Suzuki will put on the table this time...
You're welcome mate!Thanks Kassu! It is a beast of a machine . Has your F900R been delivered yet? Pics?
With the price in check, I mean that they need to keep it reasonable - fully understanding that any feature addition will trigger a bump. There is homework to do to place it in the proper slot and hopefully they know this . They did a great job with the initial GSX-S1000 placement (vs. MT-10 and Z1000), value-wise, and a terrible job with their new GSX-R1000 when initially released - I still haven't seen one around in my neck of the woods, if that's any indication...
There are plenty of good naked bikes around to choose from - a good friend just got his ZH2 and, while aesthetics are debatable (ok, subjective), reality is that it is a great bike.
Looking at your avatar - nice, I hail from the same place . Awesome! Small world!
Looks to be more comparable to the mt09 tracer in style and performance, not the comfortable sport oriented bike the gsxs aims to be. Looks to have alot more utility. I'll be keeping an eye on that one too. Cheers for the shout.Honda is supposedly coming out with an NT1100 which would be my perfect (in my head) street bike. Africa Twin engine in street focused platform.
I hope any NT1100 has a motor with less vibrations across various rev points.Honda is supposedly coming out with an NT1100 which would be my perfect (in my head) street bike. Africa Twin engine in street focused platform.
the katana to me doesn’t look good at all and if that’s the new suzuki gsxs look i’ll definitely stick with what i got i saw the suggestions like quick shifter etc doubt it will have to many new additions.
Is that it?? A black katana with clip ons. FFS.
