New naked coming GSR-1000

I did a few searches and couldn't find this on ADV Rider anywhere so I'll start things off.
So, this seems to be a GSX-R trimmed down and detuned a bit but still, if it is between 150-160 HP it will be a pretty damn fast naked bike.

It is supposed to be shown this October at the Intermot Show.

Will this bike come to the USA? Damn, I hope so. Looks tall, and maybe some adventure bike guys would like that?

Love it.
I bought two Suzukis the last couple of years just because they had 0% interest.
Id buy this one next.

I would consider selling my FZ-09 for one of these, depends on what the price is. Man, I really hope they bring this to the USA.

Looks fun, no doubt about that. But.....what's the deal with this, and many other high power nakeds? Getting 100-150 hp for street "fighter" bikes? To use even 50% of these bikes power they require a fairing. Maybe they will offer an option of a color matching neck brace. And the 30 hp bikes get a full fairing, like the CBR300R and the midget Ninja. "Look, I ride a race replica" vs. "Look, its just a normal bike" Confusion reigns.

You need fairings with 100-150hp?

Actually he said that you require a fairing at 50% of that power, so that means anything with more than 50 horsepower.

Practically speaking, yes. But many bikes are not about practical, and I generally understand that. But any bike I've ridden over 70 mph for more than 20-30 minutes seemed like it needed a fairing of some sort to me. So, I am guessing at 70 mph you'd be using 30 hp of that 125 hp. OK, it might be fun to run it up to 100 hp for a high speed pass at 120 mph, but good luck holding on, and holding onto your license. I am such a downer of practicality.

There's also the matter of being able to get and use whatever you want from the bike w/minimal revs or strain, including running highway speeds at very moderate revs. There's a certain comfort in that, as well as having the crazy power on that rare occasion you want to play. And all in a simple, comfortable, cool bike, w/(hopefully) high-end components.

I'm interested.

lol I was just being a smartass. I've toured on a 919 with a tiny screen. I have a Ninja 1000 now, but wouldn't hesitate to get another naked for day trips and short rips! And there's no such thing as too much power :)

Good looking bike. Hopefully Suzuki won't morph it into a space alien like Kawasaki did with the Z1000.

I definitely like the looks of this bike, and I hope Suzuki takes the hint from Yamaha's FZ-07 and -09 that lower pricing can sell a lot more bikes

I want an S1000R, but I don't want to pay for one...

All bikes are starting to look the same. No flavor.
