    Get back to me when an extended swing arm is a factory option.

    I echo that after two ZX14s. I’d like to believe I’m smarter now. But I’m not. And this thing isn’t helping.

    The ZX made 120 on public roads seem perfectly reasonable.

    Another Suzuki rehash, admittedly a nice looking and fast one this time!

    This is a good thing this time, IMO.
    We don't need another adventure bike.

    This looks fantastic. If it stops and turns better than before then I can forgive it being a warm-over instead of a new bike. If it had come out earlier I might have got one instead of my H2 SX SE

    The specs leaked so far look great. I'm surprised Suzi bothered to revamp this engine for Euro5 and more HP. I cannot imagine Busa by itself is that much of a volume seller to justify the R&D expense. I just hope this means they have a platform sharing strategic plan similar to Kawi's H2. Hopefully, other variants will follow. A sport touring version, like the H2 SX would be fantastic.

    Looks like there are user modes including traction control, engine braking, power modes and quick shifter. Any ideas what LF is? 51151C62-52C3-45A4-9379-793E5040CC80.jpeg

    I’m actually holding on to the ridiculous hope for a B-King variant. I’m moving really soon. But I promised myself a Z H2 after that mess is over. Even the rumor of a B-King v2 would make me wait a bit.

    LF is for lift control (anti-wheelie). The two different angle displays are for roll (lean angle) and pitch (wheelie). - Asphalt & Rubber

    Meh. After 20 years I expected something that would look different.

    It's fine, I don't hate it. But I am not floored by its innovation and beauty either.

    When the ZX14 and 12R came out, they looked different. When the VFR-1200 came out it looked different. This looks (even if it isn't) like updated plastics.

    I'm a little disappointed. YMMV.

    I like it and it might very well be my first Suzuki. Styling looks good enough and different enough to justify trading in for the 2021 Busa plus all the upgraded electronics are a huge plus. I wonder if Kawasaki will now be motivated to upgrade the ZX14R, which was a fantastic bike but like the Busa not much improvements or upgrades for several years.

    There is a replacement for zx14
    it’s called H2SX. They are keeping the 14 in the Statets as it’s a solid seller but It’s beeing pulled from the Eu due to emmisons.
