Regular people riding like us...

suspension, ergonomics, looks (you need to be attracted to your bike), decent electronics (you dont need a IMU and a magneti marelli moto GP) so you can ride fast with safety.

then you need decent power.... after 170hp, every bike is f.... fast. and all depends on the rider.

When you think about it, it also makes some sense that the Gixxer might come stock somewhat "de-restricted". I'll bet that the HUGE catalytic muffler on the Gixxer allows the engine to breathe effectively while still maintaining Euro4 sound compliance. If Kawasaki did the same thing then we might have more power out of the box too.

2013 ABS, Bridgestone T30 Evo, Woolich, Danmoto shorty & link, Rifleman's 1/5th turn, K&N, GP shift, Gen5 shock/links/dogbone, JT (-1/+0), EK, Shorai, EBC HH, AllBallz roller steering, heated grips, shorty levers, MotoDynamic signals & relay, plasti-dipped and vinyl wrapped (all green to black), Bestem carbon, PUIG Pro sliders, solo cowl, modded sprocket cover, TST fender elim. w/LEDs. 45,000km+ and going strong!

Suzuki needs to change the looks of its GSXR front end about as bad as Dodge needs to change the front ends of their trucks. Some things will never change though...
