2015 GSX-S1000

Most already have seen a spy photo of a blue one, but I'm really liking the red/black combo.


My anger management class really pisses me off.

I like it.  Hopefully it won't disappoint like the BKing did...

It won't have CC, heated grips and electronic suspension like BMW does, but rumor has it, it will be around 180hp.

Looks good, but obviously the quality will be quite a bit below BMW.

Looks like sort of a cross between the S1000R and the KTM 1290R SD with the usual Japanese flavor thrown in.

Will the quality really be below BMW? I wonder how many recalls it might get.

I've own a few Suzuki bikes and except for a stator recall on a limited 08 models (10 minutes swap) they've been bulletproof.

BMW, no so much...

Does look better in those colours (compared to the blue) but still not for me. The Beemer, Aprilia, and KTM are way above it on the lust list.
