Hello all! Sorry if I ask something that has been asked before but searching in the forum didn t find anything relevant...

Does anybody know if the next GSXR 600/750 (it s due in 2006 isn;t it?!) will have the looks of the K5 1000? I am in love with this thing but way to beastie for an inexperienced guy like me and too expensive for my budget also


Also, any info on when the new models will be releashed, I can t wait to change my Honda 599 but I wouldn t want to buy a model that will change within a few months+the reason mentioned above!

Thanks a lot in advance

From talking with my dealer, it looks like the '06 600 and 750 will be the same as the '04 and '05. Only thing that may change is the color offerings. Buy whenever you like.

i personally dont think that nothing will be done to the motor, or anything performance wise. In '05 the gsxr has been beaten by the other competitors when it won the roundup in '04, and since there has been such a high competition between the top manufacturers, the time span a bike model can stay the same at this present time is around 2 years. Hopefully it wont be at the bottom again.

The real answer to this is: No one knows. If you hear something from a dealer... you may as well believe the opposite, because dealers dont know jack. Take my word for it.

When I talked to the dealer about tyhe differences between the leftover 02' and the left over 04', they said the only difference was the body styling. Moral of the story is that the dealers seem to be as in the dark as we are.

i believe the 05 1k does have a slipper.. with the kawi coming with one, i personally feel zuk will implement one soon, maybe next year, especially if it follows suit of the 1k

There you have it, who knows?? As you can see each answer here was different. At least we all know the same thing. LOL

My dealer said they they were adding a third wheel, so people will stop dropping them in their driveways.

Maybe there will be a mod to remove that third wheel... I don't like three wheels I like two

and sometimes one

Hey guys thanks for your responses, I just made sure what I knew was correct (nothing!
). Anyway, no matter what the styling I guess some engine mods will be done for the better and maybe a slipper clutch installed. I am thinking of changing my current bike at some point after September so I guess I could wait for the new model to arrive if this happens some time late in 2005 or early 2006

You can see that the K6 1000 already has updated color schemes. A red one, and I don't see the yellow any more!

It will either be here or from the guys at Sport Rider that we get our first peep.

Blue rims on the 2k6 600????? They REALLY need to go back to white rims and the polished steal frame.

I don't think so...... I hated the metal look on my 02' when it was sitting next to the 04'. The black looks so much better.

My opinion.
