I can't wait for the new bike - my K7's well run in by now, 42,000kms - time to upgrade is fast approaching.

Re: 2012 gsxr 1000

Big bike sales are real slow at the moment. It's been trending that way for a few years. The booming markets are scooters, mainly is SE Asia.

Having said that you would think that Suzuki maybe doing a revampt to throw their hat in the ring for the MotoGP 2012. But then again maybe they won't. Be shameful if a GSX-R starting beating their own GSV-R.

That's because there is nothing definitive to buy.

What have you got:

BMW...fast but a hunk of junk
Aprillia.....not for the road
MV......beautiful but no better than anything else
Ducati...ball buster
Honda...solid but who cares
kawasaki...just ugly
Suzuki......due for update
Yamaha....stock sucs
KTM...sorta cool, overpriced



still playing with it:

Bike has groan in size..more seat tail room, bigger tank, taller upper fairing.
Traditional upper braced swingarm replaces previous.

Speaking of the BMW, I cant believe how fair the pricing is on it.

Re: 2012 gsxr 1000

Whatever Suzuki decides to do for the updates, one thing that it definitely needs is a motor that has midrange power like the Honda. All these bikes now days have all the power on top, which is useless if all you do is ride on the street, which a majority of most of us do. The K2-6 models had the power where you needed most and made the bike fun as hell.

Plus I hope it doesn't have all that fancy electronic BS that just hikes up the price which most of us could care less about. Unfortunately, I think it will go in that direction.

K4 1K, ported head perfected by Jim Cambora, 76mm JE 13.5:1 pistons, Carrillo A rods, RC's 4mm crank, Akrapovic exhaust, Yosh STR-R int cam, 750 int on ex, billet basket w/JetSpeedz clutch mod, Brock clutch cushion, Koenig 1.5' billet pan, PC mapped by RaceworX, BST wheels/titanium pin kit, Afam sprockets/DID chain, Pipercross filter, NGK plugs, speedohealer, billet v-stacks, FP levers, APE head/case studs, Galfer rotors/ lines, suspension by Cambora, Vortex r-sets gp shift, ceramic bearings

Re: 2012 gsxr 1000

Electronics is one of the mayor things people look in a bike....

rc8r 2011 is a very sweet bike, same power as R1, cbr, brembo brakes, WP suspension, etc... here cost 10K less than a BMW but some friends have not purchased because it does not have electronics.

Maybe if I rode on the track alot or was a professional racer, then maybe I could see how electronics could be beneficial. But since I don't, I am just one of those people that would opt not to have them on the bike. Traction control, my right hand is traction control, don't need electronics for that.

Re: 2012 gsxr 1000

[QUOTE=SPL170db;5232682]So you think the 2012 GSXR 1000 will be a Frankenbike with a BMW S1000rr front end, a K9 1000 front cowl and tank, K9 600 swingarm, and a 2011 gsxr 600 tail?


That is actually a rendering of the 2012 gsxr 1000 nothing more than someone thinking what it will be.

good guess though. i'll give it that

Re: 2012 gsxr 1000

it will have good electronics as all the new bike are getting so thats a given. i hope they are going for a little bit of a different look b/c they all look closely together.

but we are all looking for hp

Re: 2012 gsxr 1000

^i would be looking for weight reduction with a modest increase in power. the GSXR has been a bit of a pig compared to other brands in the recent years.

and ditch the dual exhaust. they have no business being on the bike, and they are heavy.

judging by the newest lightweight GSXR's, i would expect a large weight reduction and electronics to match everyone else. oh, and probably a $15k MSRP

Re: 2012 gsxr 1000

^ I agree with all of it and unfortunately it will be close to the price tag.

If its not close to the power i'd take the bmw. For the money i'd take the beemer over a suzuki.
