That is a sweet bike. It looks like there is a catalytic converter or something at the collector, maybe its set to come to the US at some point. CARB blows.

DON'T bring it in unless it's a rompin, stompin, 'Busa-engined powerhouse. It looks heavier than the Yamaha FZ1, and more expensive than the current Bandit 1200.

Uh, is it just me or does that bike look EXACTLY like

the ill-fated Honda CB1000 standard from just a few

years ago?

So I'm wondering, is that an enlarged (and detuned, no doubt) Hayabusa engine, or a really bored-out Bandit 1200 type engine? Anyway, not really what I'm looking for, I've already got something like this, though more torque and power couldn't possibly hurt.



The FZ1 came close, I'll have to give one a test ride, but it could use a larger engine and a little more wind protection, maybe some optional lower wind deflectors.

Make it 1400...the more cc's the better...Tune it for 130-40 hp@8500 with MONSTER midrange...And a large fuel tank...I'll buy.

Here is some info lifted from the pommie motor cycle news.



"Suzuki's GSX1400 will be a four-cylinder retro machine designed to compete with 1970s-style musclebikes like Kawasaki's ZRX1200 and Yamaha's XJR1300SP.



But it could out-muscle them all by being one of the most powerful retro-style machines in the world, with around 140bhp and similarly impressive levels of torque.



The bike marks the end of the line for Suzuki's long-serving GSX-R1100-based oil-cooled motor, which is used in the Bandit 1200 and the current GSF1200S.



The replacement design will also be oil-cooled, but is expected to introduce fuel injection to comply with more stringent emissions regulations due to be introduced in many markets soon. Europe's first wave of tighter rules comes into force next year.



Whatever the engine's technological advances, the chassis remains distinctly old-fashioned. The backbone design has a pair of conventional, right-way-up forks bolted to it, with a twin shock set-up at the rear.



The styling will make it look like a pukka 1970s machine, with a bulbous fuel tank, round headlight and chrome megaphone exhausts.



Suzuki will raid its parts bins for wheels, suspension and brakes. They will come from existing models, most probably the GSF1200S.



The bike will probably appear at shows towards the end of the year and go on sale in early 2002 for around £6500 - though Suzuki GB refuses to even acknowledge its existence."



So there you go.

To all the goofballs who are against this bike. Allow all the big bore bikes that can be brought in to come in.You know that some in Washington will see how much fun they are and try and regulate the cc's! It is a clean styled bike that doesn't have all the gaudy fairings like all the other new Jap rockets have. It is differant. I am tired of looking at the local hangouts and seeing hundreds of GSXR750 or CB900 or the all mighty R1. Yawn.I like the fact that Suzuki is doing something differant,and now Yamaha is joining in. We are waiting for Honda to come up with something exciting and stop coming up short!!! I say BRING IT HERE SUZUKI!!!!!!!!!!!! Then i will also be called Bandit1400fast!!!! Whatever you ride keep the shiney side up and just support riding! Thanks
