Hi there,

I haven’t had my bike driver license for long (18th May -15). But I have finally fullfilled a dream. Been riding and training with my Suzuki GSX750 Inzuma, still got it. Very nice bike for newbies.

I love naked bikes and that's what I’m getting but not until next year since ’the winter is coming’ here in Sweden.
Instead I have spend this year to try out different naked bikes.
Honda CB1000R
Suzuki GSR750
Kawasaki Z1000
Ducati 821 Monster
BMW S1000R
Suzuki GSX S-1000

I haven’t been trying Triple R or Aprilia Tuono V4 1100RR. One of them use a design I don’t like so much and the other one is too expensive. After these various testdrives I have come to the conclusion that S-1000 and S1000R are my two favorites.

S1000R: Good design, fast but easy to drive and control. Good seat position.
But what I have read, realibility seem to be a problem. Lots of extra options like a quickshifter, cruise control but with all these extra addons the price is climbing. And I want those extra options ;)

GSX S-1000:
Design, Very good seat position, upright angle, smooth gear changes, Exhaust sound, speed, price.
This bike is more back to basic but have traction control, ABS. Which I like to have on my bike.
Torque is good at low rpm but gets even faster at higher rpm. I had a blast with the bike. Driven it two times already. I’ve read about the throttle but nothing I noticed or had a problem with during my testdrives.

So with 95% accuracy this is what I’m getting next year. It's more of color decision I have to make. I’ve only seen it in grey and blue. Black/red is what I want but just wish I could see it in real life first.

What do you guys think about black/red?
Do you guys think there will be any updates, like new colors, more extra options or anything else?

I ordered the red & black one 3 weeks ago should have it the 1st week of September, it looks stunning in the flesh, but I suppose what ever floats your boat, I`ve found in the past that black bikes don`t seem to date like other colours. Good luck with what ever you decide to go with. :)

I'm a blue fan and my two last cars is a blue color. Maybe it's time for a change when it comes to my bike. ;)

Black and red just looks a bit more timeless and classy in my eyes, and with the HM quickshifter fitted, this bike rocks !!!

Ha never noticed that on the pic before, the tank is perfect, it must be shadow effect being picked up funny on the camera.

When I saw for the first time the GSX-S on web I don't liked so much the blue color... In fact I was searching for the red/black... But when I went at the Suzuki Official Dealer.... I've seen the REAL blue color...and I've bought that model ;) The red/black is very nice (I like black motorcycle) but the blue model has something more.... :)

I was initially chasing Red/ Black because I really didn't like the blue or grey.

I saw a photo of a grey in the sun, and it actually looked really good, heaps better than the promo photos.

I test rode a blue one and was very surprised at how nice the blue looked in person. I still ordered a red and black, because I was told it would be the most available on the next shipment.

After being told that there weren't enough bikes ordered and that I'd missed out, meaning I have to wait another 6 weeks, I changed my order to blue. The photos I've seen of the red and black just don't appeal to me as much as the blue does.

I like your choice :)
But honestly in my opinion this bike can give better emotions with some white parts... I'm working at a customization on my PC.... and next with my dear friend that is a great autobody repairman we'll see what to do ;)
However I love this blue so intense
