Whats up guys/gals, just picked up a 16 red and black GSX S1000F. Did a lot of research and was almost scared off by all of the snatchy throttle complaints. Mine is sensitive but no where near what I was reading and is a very enjoyable ride. I am coming from a 14 Hayabusa loved the power but the bent over riding position made for a very uncomfortable ride for this 48 y/o body of mine. Needless to say the power of the S doesn't compare to the Busa but this thing is plenty quick!

Looking forward to enjoying the forum and my new bike!

Welcome. As I just said in a different thread it's a great bike when set up properly, I'm sure you'll enjoy the "comfortable" ride

Yes Welcome Rob.


As an a side comment, I had a lend bike today of a new Ducati Scrambler demo, 250 km old, and it ran jerky very similar to our GSXS.
Not a bike for me I am afraid. Far too stiff suspension, a lot harsher than the GSXS that is considered too stiff by many here. Plenty torquey though.
I expected a lot better for the big ask.


Rob.
