Correct. That VVT may just be a game changer and blow the field away. Thankfully its a mechanical system so should be more reliable considering they are just launching it.

Coming back to the exhaust trolls, I dint find the new CBR's exhaust too appealing either.

No way buddy. The H2's exhaust is still the most hideous by far. That thing is the size of a small apartment covered in chrome

I actually like the new GSXR too. Not very many factory exhausts look great coming off the sales floor. Not a fan of the SP2's exhaust either, but she's a pretty bike!

suzuki will blow the competition away with this bike.... we will see, I love gixxers , but the R1 is a weapon, the new bmw also and the zx10r is a true tested champ, even the new ape is making good hp numbers and a good chassis,

the era of domination is over.

It's hard to pick a bad bike, everyone has a competitive choice. Unless you want a Honda.

The Kawi is still the cheapest to build into a race bike. Kawis kit parts make it easy and affordable for everyone.

Kind of funny that wsbk this weekend mentioned the new zx10RR, but did not mention the new honda or gixxer coming out.

I want the new zx10RR stickers :)
