Suzuki GSX-S1000

I really think this bike looks awesome. Looks like ABS for sure. We'll see if it has the content to compete with the new super-nakeds from Europe.

Good looking bike. Suzuki is on the move again after a couple of rough years. It is good to see them introducing new models that are competitive in both performance and price. As the performance standard market is on the rise, assuming this is priced right, Suzuki will sell a bunch.

I like it. However, if you added dreadlocks to the headlight mask in that bottom photo it would look like the alien from the old Predator movies. "Get to the choppa!!" In all seriousness though it looks like a fun bike. Glad to see Suzuki finally getting in on the super naked class.

When is Yamaha bringing a Crossplane R1 powered naked into the market? Seems like the other big 3 have their cards in now.

Looks like the lovechild of a Z1000 and a Gladius. Not really digging it.

My thoughts too. Seems like a draft made it to production.
Shame because their GSXR's look good

The SV guys wanted a 1200. So if it was a Vtwin....

I'd prefer a 750 Vtwin. Red in color please.

I like the BMW R better.

No doubt. Exactly what I thought after seeing the first picture. When are these companies going to learn to put a flat seat on these bikes.

Styling looks almost dated already.

The frame looks aluminum which is a good sign.

I'm hoping for a retune since a stock GSXR1K powerband is useless on the street.

I think it looks pretty good. I like the single color. It's classy, elegant - not "bold new graphics"

Meh, wake me up when Suzuki stats building v-twins again.

I love the brand (most of my bikes have been "S"), but this one looks derivative in style (CB1000r, CB500, FZ8, Gladius, etc. etc. all had this look years ago), and is another inline 4 banger.

As a guy who likes liter sized bikes, but rides mostly around the city, these 1000cc super-sportish 4s just sit around waiting to spool-up to power, but never really getting the chance. If I had to take a newish 4 from Suzuki, I'd happily take one of their killed off ZRX1200s or GS1200SS over this thing… but to each his own.

Like my dad used to say, "It's pretty nice… if you like that sort of thing."
