    This bike is now listed on the Suzuki US website. It is good to have a mid displacement standard from Suzuki available again for the US. In black or special edition blue and white.

    well I didn't see that one coming. I think a 750 is about the perfect size though. All the performance 99% of us will evern want or need, yet still decent on gas and insurance.

    Good move Suzuki!

    Heavy at 470lbs. FZ-09 still dominates this class.

    I think it's a good move, the more middle-weight naked bikes the better, imo. Plus I'm glad to see that fantastic motor in more applications. But does anyone find the gap between the motor and the frame kind of weird, though?

    3/4 liter is my absolute sweet spot, but I'd still opt for the GSX-R in the same size.

    How the hell can it weigh that much? That's around the same weight as my FZ1.

    Saweet! When can I demo one??

    If it was a HP Vtwin 750 I would be down a left nut to get one. They should make an 1200 Vtwin also in the same style.

    AIM expo, need to go!

    $8149.00 is much better than $15k for a S1000R!

    Dang, I'm going to have a tough time resisting a naked Gixxer 750. Hope they botched something that is a deal killer for my wallets sake.:D

    No ABS and heavy eh? :huh

    The Z model is just a fancy paint job...

    Still would really like a test ride for sure! Great job on the styling. My favorite nOOb bike for the season. Pop in some GIxxer cams and go!

    I really like mid displacement standards, and was intrigued by the new Honda cbr 650f. Honda may have problems selling that bike if you can get the Suzuki with another 100cc, and probably a lot more performance for less money. Good move Suzuki. I wish it had ABS though.

    470lbs is the curb weight, not dry weight. Not light but also not heavy. Kind of like a ZR7 with real suspension and brakes and 20 more HP.

    I don't think Suzuki has released specs on the GSX-S1000 yet. It looks like GSX-S750 is both heavier and down on power in comparison. Usually there's a compromise between weight and power, but in this case it seems like GSX-S1000 is better all around. Still, I prefer the style of the GSX-S750. I think I agree that I'd prefer nicely spec'd 750 than a 1000.
