    I guess that goes to show that everyone is different, because I love the way mine looks. I love everything about it. Except how difficult it is to attach luggage to it.

    This new one is gonna have to be one hell of a bike to get me to consider trading it in. Even if it does have luggage.... and cruise.

    That 950 model is the Euro restricted one for nOObs.

    "Suzuki has unveiled the new GSX-S 950 in Europe. The naked roadster motorcycle is inspired by its bigger sibling the GSX-R1000 and designed for young riders holding the A2 license. The company is offering two variants of the GSX-S 950, A2 and a 93.9bhp variant."

    If a bike has more than 94hp in the UK and Europe it can't be restricted to 47hp for new riders so Suzuki can't sell the GSX-S1000 because it has 150hp to start with hence the new 950 which will meet the 94hp restriction. Triumph do similar with the tiger900 - 850sport. The restriction will be in the ecu not the engine. It's just a simple way to get round the rules without making a new bike.
