Suzuki set to release GSR1000

Another high powered naked set to hit the scene. All of the sudden there are tons of great options in this category.

Hopefully they're actually interested in selling a few and don't style it like the B-King.

150 hp will put it toward the middle of the field. Hopefully the price will be competitive. Knowing our luck the US probably won't get it.

Finally a new Suzuki that actually appeals to me. I'm not "brand loyal" to anyone but, I've LOVED every Suzuki I've ever had & I'd make a Suzuki my next purchase just to help them through the hard times they're having now. They probably WON'T bring it to the states though.

That "Europe only" GSX-1400 was a sexy beat that I DESPERATLY wanted. If my KLR ever blows up (fat chance) or gets totaled I'll replace it with a new DR 650.

They want a slice of the S1000R market.

Awful.

The GSR, aka the 'Gizzer', in 600cc form was rubbish (very bad FI, later acknowledged by Suzuki) and I've only ever seen one of the revised model.

So, Suzuki clap another parts-bin bike together, two years after the segment really takes off.

Their whole line of bikes is propped up by the DL650, but the only bikes they really care about are the GSX-R family.

Sheejus.

The GSXR is a well sorted machine. If they don't try anything too crazy I'd say it would be hard to mess it up.

I like what I'm seeing so far.

Enough already. Does the world really need yet another litre sport based naked? And I love nekkids! What Suzuki needs more than anything is s proper sport tourer. Why don't they do a Busa based sport tourer already? It's a no brainer given the success of the C14.

Wanna get more mileage out of the Gixxer 1000, make a sport tourer out of it. BMW is about to come out with the S1000F, and they are gonna sell a ton of those. With the painfully slow death of the Bandit 1250, Suzuki has no sport tourer of any kind. Time for a ST... any ST.

Maybe it's because there's not much turnover in that market. A lot of ST's are anvil-reliable and regularly turn 100k. Connies, FJ's, ST1100/1300's are all rock-solid. Perhaps it isn't economically feasible for them to try to invest in a market that has a pretty low sales rate. The depreciation on C14's alone is pretty astounding.

I have wanted Zuk to step into that market for a long time. A Ninja1000 type bike with the GSXR motor would be cool. Or, a lighter option in the large ST market with the Hayabusa mill. The nice thing about Suzuki is that you know it will be priced pretty reasonabley. They certainly don't build in the Honda/BMW type of fit & finish, but every Suzuki I've had has been dead reliable. I really dig their bikes. I just wish they were a bit more prolific.

As for this bike, I'm sure it will be an excellent machine. Go ahead with your bad self, Suzuki!

The light weight ST class like the FJ-09 (if it ever comes out) would be gold.

The Ninja 1K is awesome, but pretty hard edged with it's ultra light flywheel, high revs on the freeway and literbike roots. It would be nice if someone came out with something similar but different with more range and other goodies.

How do guys hang on to 150hp plus? I mean I just picked up a 2008 Ducati 1000 s2r which makes what, 90hp on a good day? But it rockets me up to 100mph pretty damn fast.

I guess I have to try one of these 150 to 190hp bikes but it seems like on the street it would just be way to much power to use.

Ps I had a '98 750 gixxer making about 105hp and that thing was pretty ridiculous also

By all accounts - the Bandit 1250 will be coming back in a refreshed package.

I sold mine after 6 months. Never did anything for me.

I did, however, want that 6 cylinder Stratosphere to make production.

That would have been something..
