Looked at the bike pretty good at the DC show...Utter disappointment would be a compliment. Looks the exact same from a few feet away. Size appears to be no different then anything from 05-current. Glad Yamaha & Kawi are holding the flag for Japan. Jury is still out on Honda

Gixxers are like honda accords of the car world. Japanese, reliable, nothing exciting. I know motorcycles are a small part of their portfolio but come on man. They need to bring something exciting out.

I agree with some of prospected's assertion. From a performance standpoint, and really what else matters when discussing sportbikes, they have somewhat stood still. Bodywork is a little different, oh an a b c mode to save the lives of squids who can't handle the bike but are to vain to buy the smaller bike. Busa is the same since 08, 05 gsxr 1000 till now shows minimal increase in thrust. I don't know what happened to them......kawasaki would fire a shot, Suzuki would fire back. It's like they rolled over.

The Gixxer are still selling very well with minimal engineering updates despite the competitions moves in the market. For Suzuki it doesn't make much fiscal sense to throw money at the horsepower wars especially when everything is leaning towards more electronic tricks and lightweighting the chassis, and any changes won't lead to more than an incremental increase in sales.


Better to wait until you begin seeing sell through numbers take a dip, then spend the money on integrating changes to the model.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527
