Gotta give Suzuki credit for making a new GSXR look like an old Aprilia RSV

Do you ride Superbikes normally? Cause I think Suzuki is the only Manufacture this year thats aestheticly pleasing.

Default Another sword name?

Gladius, huh? So for their very-Japanese bikes, they use a Japanese sword name (Katana), and when they want to make a knockoff Ducati, they pick a Roman sword.

Personally, I think Suzuki Schiavona would sound better.

Do you think Suzuki paid Ducati anything for designing the Gladius for them?

On another note, the colors they posted on their Global site for 2009 are beyond words. The black cherry is just
horrible!

They all look pretty much alike. Here's yer shovel take yer pick. Choosing between the various RRs is like choosing between toothpastes. All do the same job with little difference between products... no matter how much the PR artists try to pretend otherwise.

That's what makes bikes like the B-King so striking. They don't look like a CBR/YZ/R1/KZ or a Harley/Shadow/Star/Boulevard.
