I'm not usually a Suzuki kind of guy...
 
but it looks like the have really over shot the mark. The other companies have chosen to release '02 bikes again for '03, while the class leader raises the bar again.

Just like you, after looking at the press release photos I loved the silver and hated the blue/black. Then, I saw the two at a motorcycle show and was disappointed that the silver actually looks pretty dull. I like the blue/black better. I have a blue 01 GSXR-1000 and I'm happy to see the white rims gone - what a pain to keep clean!

Anyone know if there's a turbo kit available for this model yet?

Great Review. Love the video and pictures So long twins.
 
This bike will make the RC51 and Duc 999 a thing of the past in AMA superbike. Love the writing thanks. Glad I renewed by subscription!

It'll be interesting to see if this turns out to be true - based on what I've read of last season's British Superbike races, that wasn't the case. I'm sure the '03 model's improved, but I wouldn't count the v-twins out just yet. But then again, I ride an Aprilia, so I'm certainly biased.

Anybody out there started a pool as to when JohnnyB will get thrown off this Gixer?



(Great article, by the way)

Nice article, the thing looks and sounds like a Rocketship! But alas I'm too old (and fat) to want to "assume the position" for long and too po' to (seriously) entertain thoughts of multi specialty bike ownership. That's OK though, I's jus a ridin' an havin' a good ol' time on my UJM, an' wishin' fo' thems ta be amakin' a good ol' UAM. PS sounds more like an (Uncle) Tom or Cracker (re Cool hand Luke) than a Jim to me IMHO

Now that is the best idea you have had yet Buz :) Nothing like a screaming inline 4 to take the blues away.
