of course, not mentioned is the fact that the new bike comes with ABS, which I'd certainly want; plus TC, which with 214 HP on tap, you`d likely need, to keep from launching to the moon!

I'm not a fan of rider modes or TC. Maybe I'm too old and set in my ways. Abs I love.

My new gen gsxrr has fantastic throttle control. I don't find the need for electronic numbing down.

I do like the quick shifter. It's bit of a pain for mellow riding but when you want to play hard its terrific. Sadly, you have to navigate the menu to enable it when a quick and dirty on/off switch would have been the ticket.

I am completely out of the loop on more current GSXRs. The '05 and it's ilk were great bikes and of course still are. Question: the newer GSXRs are they significantly different or better?

The outcome of that video is not a surprise, I think to many of us.

The GSX-R1000 received a massive upgrade in 2017 bringing on par (or surpassing, depending on who you talk to) with the vaunted S1000RR.

Thanks for the video. Definitely has piqued my interest as I will be looking at a new(er) bike next season.

I take it the dealer network these days has shrunk for most of the major brands of litre bikes. The only one I have been in, in years is BK.

Still plenty of Suzuki dealers around.
