2013 gsxr 1000

Hey guys, just got back from the 2012 Toronto Motorcycle Show. Checked out the Suzuki booth to see the difference between the 12s and the 13s. They had both the 1 Million edition and the L3 Black 1k there. The only difference on the black is the pin stripe on the wheels are now a goldish/ very faded yellow. And the black paint itself is mettalic. I have a Black L2 at the dealer and cant remember for the life of me if it was mettalic blac or gloss black. Regardless thats the only changes on the black scheme. Looks great. Spoke to some reps there to see if they could elaborate on any new info on the L3s, he confirmed that there are no new mechanical specs or changes, just new colour schemes. This is what he said and it doesnt seem like there are any other changes other then cosmetic.

Oh and it seems no one likes the red on the Million, not even the reps like it. Just looks random to be honest. All in all great show, got to try out all the bikes back to back and hands down the Gixxer is the most comfortable bike seating postion style. Never knew how much I would I dislike the R6s feel but dont like it at all.

Anyways ill upload some pics up on here shortly. Last pic a random guy jumped on the bike as I took the pic. Hope you can see the wheel stripe

The white 1000 w the red nose is hands down the absolute ugliest GSXR I have ever seen

Talking Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

Well i like it and think it looks good...

Looks like a mix of the track bike and street bike with cool 1985 retro paint... (Pics Below of Track and Street)

Plus the Red in the front and back accent the Red logo's on the side and gas tank...

Check out this short video of the bike on disply and you can see the sweet pearl white paint...

It looks like someone slapped a baboon's ass on the front fairing.

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

Nothing wrong with the One Million, except that red. It literally takes away from the bike. Its soo bright. Youll see in person, it just seems out of place. Id paint it black, blue or white and it would tie in the whole bike together

Sorry for forgetting to post pics LOL

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

What a disappointment with the 1 million edition GSXR. I mean white, cmon, who likes a white bike. They should have made it in some kind of dark blue color scheme (like the race bikes) or the red/black Suzuki Jomo colors. Now that would have been a seller right there.

They should have made the 1 million edition color scheme looks like this:

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

I agree with the red and black. Would look mean!! But the white is nice. It's a flashy look vs a meaner look. Just don't like the bright red at all

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

Exactly JP1143, a real race replica paint job, and there are so many to choose from.

The Honda Repsol scheme looks better than what Suzuki have done.

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

The red was just an off decision. The rest of the bike looks great. If i got one, that red would get painted right away.

From a reliable source... Yes there are no mechanical/geometric changes between the L2 and L3s. But keep your eye out for the 2014s. Revamping is on the way

The red inserts are hideous. The bike is gorgeous though. Super sick and I never say "sick" because I'm too old. Might have to buy a set from a racer.

Re: 2013 gsxr 1000

What the freakin hell? Forget the colors!! What about the damm MOTOR! Nothing worth mentioning has changed since 09. Or how about lowering the dry/curb weight. You got the BMW smoking everything, the new zx-10 is kicking ass, and all they do is change the sissy colors!! I cant beleave suzuki is not keeping up with the times. So not cool....
