i'd love the gsxr to make a comeback. every bike should just be badass. the cbr is slated for 2017 remodel so that could be a great year for those 2 to finally get back in the game that bmw started, kawi followed with and yamaha just joined
Yes, I'm still old. But I feel new again. And the GSXR-1000 is just as old as I am at this point. In bike years anyway.

Competition never hurts to advance the technology and keep things moving forward. If Honda and the Snoozuki can up the game a little bit, then the rest will follow suit. But I was hoping that this Gixxer would be a bit more revolutionary. Seems like they're just really trying to get back in the game rather than pushing the envelope a bit.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

unfortunately i had that same conversation with a buddy the other day. it seems they're just playing catch up. they need to bring something from the gsxrr down quickly.

Shut up and ride.

I'm not sure the GSXRR has anything special to bring down though.

I don’t think you could go wrong with any of these ’16 bikes, gxr, r1, gen5, rsv4.. they will all perform beyond most street rider’s capabilities anyway. That being said the gen5 would be my first choice
