K8 600
By gzer(Enthusiast), Sep. 29, 2008
In spite of all the track monkeys and post hoars, i decided that my first bike was to be a gixxer and i'm glad i ignored the haters. The bike is smooth and easy going when you need it to be and a bat out of hell when the demon in you takes over. I kept it in mode 'C' for about a month until i was co... Read Full Review

Great sportbike for smaller riders
By Holly(Owner), Oct. 12, 2008
The GSX-R has the lowest seat height of the supersports and is very street-user friendly, so it's been perfect for me. I'm 5'2" and worked myself up from a Ninja250. I had the 2007 CBR600RR, but that extra 1/2" seat height just didn't leave me enough leeway for dips at stops. I'd shaved... Read Full Review

By Josh (Owner), Oct. 11, 2008
I have had this bike for about5 months/ 9000 miles, and still have not one complaint about the setup. I sold my ZX-10 to get this bike, and i dont regret it one bit. There is power on demand everywhere, and it practically turns itself. I highly recommend this bike to any Suzuki enthusiast. Read Full Review
