2016 GSX-R 1000
« on: July 29, 2015, 07:47:52 pm »
Details are starting to come through about the all new Suzuki GSX-R 1000. This bike ruled the class for eight years, but has not had a worthwhile update for a long time. Expect something special.
Why do things that only happen to stupid people always happen to me?

It is long overdue for Suzuki to put the GSX-R back on the top step of the superbike ladder.

The biking world needs to have an honest, fire breathing, widow making GSXR.
A bike that can and will kill you first chance it gets.
Good for the sport and good for the species, so make mine a 750 please!!!

One thing is for sure, in today's world it is not,imo, possible to make a new model so much better than the previous one as it was with the 1985 GSX-R over the GSX range.

hmm
I have owned a couple of later generation gsxr`s, there is just something about a big bore Suzuki that is hard to explain.
Lovely linear power curves, short shifting up, and whacking it, produces the most gorgeous induction growls emanating from the airbox.
Agree with Danie, not easy to make big improvements nowadays.
one way is by giving the bike more intelligence via smart electronics.
Think the Fireblade SP is the only big bore sportbike aound that you can take without the rider aids.
Single seat, Ohlins suspension, blue printed motor, totally narrow focused and selfish.
Lovely...

ek hoop daai 250 is n 4 prop. n 20 000 rpm screamer sal fun wees.
My eerste bike was n Honda VT250SPADA wat tot so 14 000 rpm gehardloop het.
Goeie tye

Ja.  The "technology" jumps are very small.  Suzuki performance in year 1 of MotoGP, shows they have something available though.  This bike will probably be a great one.

2 guys in my neighbourhood had a FZR 250 and a ZXR 250. Used to love that sound when they came past.
Only nice with the stock exhaust though. Open pipe at those revs is just inhumane.

Daai bikes is was koning, baie betroubaar. Blykbaar het die NC30 se carbs op die NC35 gepas en hom n lekker hupstoot gegee  :biggrin:

Will most likely be a Japanese model only and be a starter bike so cheaper option than built in units ?

Yeah but it's like they put absolutely 0% of thought into that. Oh...we forgot the indicators well...it's only the 250 version... "here is some glue stick them on the side Chang".
I mean since also it's more of a beginner bike, so they will maybe even drop it more.

Nadat my seun gekla het dat ek nog nie op sy nuwe (tweedehands) Gsxr750 gery het nie, het ek vanmŰre werk toe gery
met hom.
Wat Ů gesukkel, net nie gebou vir die tipe fietse nie, gewrigte was flou toe ek by die huis kom, en om Ů draai gaan is ook Ů heel ander storie as met die TA.
Wonder wat gaan ek sÍ as hy my vra hoe die ding ry, VINNIG is hy gewis.
