The Gixxer is still a good bike. Yeah, I will admit they are behind the curve compared to the other bikes now days that have all that fancy traction control, ant-wheelie mechanism, blah blah blah. Gixxer is still solid without that stuff, but be patient, they will have all that accompanied with a steeper price tag. Then, we will be complaining about something else.
The BMW HP4 is a nice bike I must say, but to me $24K is just to high. Buy you Gixxer, spend about $5K extra on motor work and no HP4 will touch you. But if you want to get the HP4 to be different, then nothing wrong with that either.
