There's another thread on here that just died back in July before these pix were published. Looks pretty good to me. Assuming it is based on the gixxer 1000, it's going to be pretty light and at least 150 hp (?).

and this one from August with a slightly wrong name in the title, so it would be hard to search for.

I like it. I just hope they don't cheap out on the suspension.

Yep - the suspension is a key factor - I'd be happy to pay a little more for the gixxer-spec suspenders and brakes. I don't need the gixxer's 180 ponies, but it would not deter me from the bike provided the power output is smooth and linear.

Of all of the newer nekkid supersport bikes, I'm really diggin' the 1290 Duke the most, but the price tag is pretty salty (probably well worth it) and all of the reports of sloppy rear wheel bearings is downright disheartening.

I also like the BMW S1000R. I can not recall anything but good reviews and posts on that one.

Looks like there's going to be a naked and a faired version.





It should be interesting to see how these compare to the Ninja 1000 and Z1000.

That red one is actually not too bad!

Blue one not so much.

Are they Europe only?

These are aimed square at the z1000 and the ninja 1k, as they look pretty much identical to both of them.

I wish suzi was just a little more original with these...

Nice bikes, nonetheless...

The more I think about it I can see the faired version in my future. I think I actually like the styling better than the Ninja 1000. I bet it'll look really good with a full-exhaust, tail tidy, & solo seat cowl.



I'll just have to wait and see on how it compares.

A few more details & pix here...

http://www.motorcycle.com/manufactur...gsx-s1000.html

They did not cheap out on the suspension or brakes. I'm guessing it will be lighter than the Z1000 given its last-generation gixxer 1000 platform (?).

A few pieces of bodywork are a bit over-styled for my taste, but it's much better looking than Suzuki's last big bore naked bike - the B-King.

The faired version should be very interesting. I've been waiting for something like this for a long time. If it's done "right."

Looks like it has premium suspension and brakes with a LIGHTER frame than the GSXR. If it goes like the cat's ass at a good price it should be a winner.
