I note that this week’s Motorcycle News (UK) has a test of the GSXS-1000F compared with the Kawasaki Z1000SX and the Honda 650. The Suzuki was slated for poor fuelling and suspension and came third! Tester Urry just didn’t like it and found it hard to ride - he couldn’t find much positive to say about it in his test report. I thought he was harsh. The bike takes a bit of getting used to the throttle response and the handling is a bit choppy and uncomfortable on bumpy roads, but it is nimble, very rapid and smooth. The vibration the test complains about doesn’t bother me - my former BMW K1300S was buzzier and harsher. Its worth a read though.
