3 Level TC and ABS is about all it's going to get from the electrical boffins. 180hp...no, doubt it seriously.

Probably S1000R HP +0/-10 at the wheel. Will be a good bike and quality will be better than any European bike you could name at the moment. The Japanese have been working to and acheiving 6 sigma for years. The Yanks and Euros are lucky to meet 3 sigma.

Sorry, just a fact. Bums me out that with all the knowledge we've gained over the last 3-4 decades we cannot meet the same quality standards in our automotive/manufacturing industries.
Why is common sense so uncommon?

Liking the Suzuki & I'm no Suzuki fan. Find the BMW better quality comments a bit odd. We need to get off our high horse with that one. You can't knock the Jap's for build quality or reliability. Is it not the case we like our BMW badge better !!

My last four bikes have been Japanese and not one ever let me down plus they always seemed well built, also nothing ever fell off such as the side fairings. :008:
Most of my life, I drank whiskey, rode bikes, and chased women..........the rest of it I just wasted.

My Aprilia RSV was way more reliable than the gsxr's I've had, which suffered from some fairly terminal problems. Plus the European bikes I've had have had loads more character and better looking.

The Suzuki is  :005:

If I were to add a Suzuki to my garage it would be a Slabby Gixer 750 or 1100 from the late 80's with plastics ripped off (read: crashed), Renthal bars, bean can stupid loud exhaust, and rattle can matt black paint job.

Proper.

To qualify my comment - I'm on my 3rd GSXR 750 on the bounce and only my 1st BMW bike. The current GSXR



has (as have the others) been pretty well bullet proof, but the quality of finish and fixings on the BMW is superior. This one has had a couple of minor recalls. The last being for the front brake master cylinder.

I like the red and black better but it looks over weight and frumpy to me.
The S1R looks a lot more aggressive and sporty.  Better equipped too.
I have no doubt it will be cheaper than the  BMW but I don't think it will out perform it.
I wonder if the Suzuki's looks will translate into its performance and handling.   :084:
