My 2011 GSXR-750 had Brembo calipers OEM.

We are so defensive of our bikes aren't we. There are so many awesome bikes out there at the moment so who cares if some come out with more power? I'll never be able to ride my bike to it's limits so anything "better" is only better if it's a bike that I like.. Not because someone else thinks it's better. :020:

I don't know about the rest of you chaps, but I have had my fair share of new bikes-Japanese and European...And I can't EVER remember riding out of the dealership without saying to myself "this is the best bike I've ever had".  :152:
We're all in love with this addictive hobby/sport, and we all have different budgets and taste. Enjoy the ride on whatever it is you ride (but seriously, the 1R IS the best bike I've ever ridden or owned!). :305:
Speed has never killed anyone. Suddenly becoming stationarythats what gets you.

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

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

I guess I'll be another 1R owner to admit this, but the GSX-S1000 looks pretty good to me, in the Japanese way of style/design. But alas, not the technically superb machine the 1R is, nor the soul of an Italian bike (IMHO).  :019:

I've got 2 gixxers and have to say the quality has been great, one gets hammered on track the other has 29k on it and I've had no issues, I'm sorry to say but there have been and are numerous issues with BMW at present including this model so I don't agree with your statement.

I'm not trying to get into an argument just stating my experience with Suzuki.

Let's hope its better than the GSR-750 that Suzuki launched & I test rode last year. What a pile of crap that was! Before the BMW I chose between the GSR, Z800 & a Street Triple...I bought the Triple but then traded it for the S1000R

Haven't regretted it once!  :028: :152:

Tiddy, why was the GSR 750 a 'pile of crap' ? Hope you're not comparing it with bikes such as the S1R, never ridden a 750 naked but I'm sure it'll be a great bike for those looking for a bike not so focused as bikes like ours.
