People hate on the new look of the can, but I think it is sweet.
Blue>any however! for a Gixxer anyways!
I like that better then Blue on a Gixxer, I find the blue and white played out (just because it's so common).
Post up a pic of the can side...
Ahh yes. the good old GSX-R1. The can is an embarrassment and brings the gixxer down a notch in my book. I don't know if I'd ever own one.
The new black Gixxers > all.
Irony? I think so.
I don't mind the look of the new style can at all.
I love the integration of the signals into the mirrors though!!
Me too, but I'm not crazy about how the mirrors stick out like they do, not very smooth IMO.
well, it IS still a Suzuki man
Nice lookin bike minus the fagtastic mirrors/signals.
First mod: New Exhaust.
I agree, I think they suck...but the can is nice IMO.
I'm not a fan of the exhaust myself... I prefer the cleaner look of underseat exhausts a la Ducati/ CBR-RR/ R1/ etc.
I love the new rear cowl fairing.
R6 and R1=Honda Civic of the sportbike world. Everyone wants them just because everyone has them and compared to the other bikes they look cool. Probably my second least favorite Litre bike. Gixxer, ZX10, R1, 1000RR.
The new gixxer is definitely a sweet looking bike, its obvious there is a lot of R1 in it. I've heard its incredibly small compared to the previous gens.
Underseat exhaust is great for racing and looking cool, but doesn't make for a great place to put your wallet, keys, hat, etc.
Why you hating the 1000RR so much?
He's a Suzuki/VW driver :wink: Although you are a VW driver converted to Honda
Yeah a Honda bike...never ever, ever the car....sorry.
Honda is still a Honda , heheheheheheheeheh.. U got something against reliability? Ask Flower what he thinks of VW... He's driving one now
I don't care what anyone thinks of VW, I love them, have never once had a major problem with one, and I actually fit in them...oh and the interior doesn't look like it came from WalMart...
Anyway, this WAS a question why Chedda didn't like the new 1000RR, and I'm sure it is not just because it is a Honda.
I'll bet it has a good part of something to do with it,
Can't see him being so narrow minded to think that...not liking a certain bike just because of the make...whatever's clever though...
The bike itself is great. Strong engine, extremely smooth, and super quite. I just don't find the seating position to be my favorite. I like to be leaned over the bike and behind the windshield. I find on the Honda's and the Yamaha's I'm looking over the front tire. I just like to be behind the windshield and not over it. Same reason I like the 636 over the R6.
I HATE the riding position of the 636!!! So uncomfortable for me, but Im tall I guess.. My legs dont line up with the tank grooves.
I love the look of the 05... I so want a gsxr...
Meh, they ain't anything special.
As long as the wheels don't explode.
I like this shot, but that exhaust is kinda like, weird.. And anything Kawi I was always told to stay away from, lol
that's pure sex... I love the look of the tank
