    Ewwww.
    While motorcycle technology is next level, styling is almost at an all time low, industry wide.

    This bike uses the 05-08 gixxer thou engine.

    It’s also basically Busa money.

    Nice try tho, Suzuki.

    I was generally referring to things like abs, traction control, electronic cruise, you know, modern-ish technology.
    I was not inferring that this was some type of fancy wizz bangery.

    Why anyone would replicate styling from the 80's is beyond me.

    Suzuki should have stopped at the 05-06 GSXR 1000. Everything since is trash.

    I’m literally stuck in the 90s, and 2000s. It’s bizarre to me that all the liter bikes now have multiple trim levels.

    You mean after he buys a panigale out of the blue, outfits it with $5k in accessories, rides it sparingly for a month, declares it "meh" and trades it back to the dealer at $0.50/$1?!

    Bring these schemes back.

    Admittedly the gixxer scheme has stayed pretty much the same... maybe I should just buy a blue and white Suzuki and add some pink decals.2020 Suzuki Katana-72e0da5d-c37c-4482-8d51-0e9d1fa8beba2020 Suzuki Katana-97271d56-add6-4799-970a-5e86e234d9b2

    My first bike. 1991 750. She was hacked up, but I loved her.

    Head down to Adrenaline Cycle, many many 80s/90s sport bikes in immaculate condition. Bring your wallet. And your 401k.

    But seriously, Justin has quite the collection. It’s worth the ride just to see.

    Best of the GSXR 750ís. Still light, simple engine to work on, and back to the long-stroke design. I believe the cam/rocker material issues were sorted out too. I have owned a few of the 1st and 2nd gen (86-91) GSXRs. The styling still looks good, they went pretty goofy after this and got heavy..
