Not my cup of tea. Don't like it's look. I will say I'm glad Suzuki is getting back in the game but I'd never buy one.

I think I read the gixxer is gonna be two tier.....the expensive one with the suspension...and a cheap one with the usual..out dated stuff.....kinda like Yamaha with there R1M line vs standard and now a light version available......
Soooo glad I didnt pull the trigger two months ago and got the R1.......Soooo happy my Gen 5 is paid for and on its way :)

Well, I've never been a big fan of the gsxr but I've never had anything against them. I ride a gen 1 so if it's lacking with extra electronics compared to the competition, it wouldn't matter to me anyway lol. Also, the headlight gives me an MV Agusta vibe. . . . . . . & last but not least, it's ugly.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but reviews are finally out on the new 'Gixxer'. It looks like they're trying to take the crown, but I think they're just catching up.




The Gen 5 comes with almost everything (plus steel braided lines) out the crate that the upsec GSXR comes with at a better price. I think Suzuki will pay the mags off to be on top this year. Its doing much better than the new Fireblade in reviews, although it looks better overall than the Zuk imo. Either way its good to see them both back in the game.

Has the same brake calipers as before (same as my gsx-s1000) and rubber lines, yikes. The one button start is a cool feature, the gsxs also as that. Just press the starter button and let off, the bike will take it from there to start it. The vvt sounds neat, but expensive to replace if it breaks. To be honest, I am just excited to see the bikes out! Can't wait for a comparison between Gen 5 zx10, fireblade, gsxr, and R1!!!

It's the same feedback after every manufacturers latest model launch!all magazines that are invited to the launch articles read "game changer"hard to find negative points""back at the top"!dont you think if they said "I really can't feel any benefits from the last model"his career would be over!honesty and real world opinions from editors after model launches are rare as rocking horse shit.........
