The funny bit is they hate on the braking system, but it has the shortest stopping distance. I'd say in the "objective" category the GSXS1000 holds it's own, only in subjective does it fall behind. That's to be expected though, the other two bikes are 40-60% more cash.While it is flattering and proof of how this bike is perceived by people in general, it's not entirely a valid comparison. It's a hyper-naked, yes, but in the Japanese vein not the techno-wizardry section of the Euro team. Except in the braking department, stick that up your clackers, Euro trash! They seemed to begrudge the 'poor man's' braking system bettering the other two a bit.
I'm waiting for comparisons with the Kawasaki, Speed Triple and...well the old Yammy FZ1 isn't in the same class but it's there by default. Even the Speed Triple isn't considered a hyper-naked like the Suzi and Euro versions but it's another close competitor to the GSXS. Kwaka thou, Speed Triple, GSXS, maybe throw in the Duke Street Fighter, add in an MV Augusta. That's a comparison I want to read.
Comparing it to bikes almost half again as expensive is cool but only proves that if you pay more you get more, and that's how it should be. I'm just fine with my working man's rocket.
Are you that insecure when someone makes some disparaging remarks about your new pride and joy that you believe is the best bike ever?If, jong, if,if,if. Suzuki built what Suzuki built. It's the cheapest performance litre bike on the market. Cost reduction means you don't get all the fruit. Are you obtuse or really just a troll?
If you don't like it,don't buy it. Go and buy the bmw and we'll all be happy for you.
