Not bad. I like the lines of the exhaust, but I think they would look better if they were smaller/thinner

That black/silver is pretty clean... I'm not the biggest fan of Micron, but I bet they would look pretty sweet on that bike... or maybe the shorty yoshi carbon fiber

Those exhaust look like big turds from the side and a motorcycle police bike from the rear.

exhaust is dogshit.

looks like a 600/750 on steroids, was hoping more of a change for 09...can't understand why suzuki cant do a dramatic change like the other brands, color pending, you cant really tell a difference in the gsxr 1000's from 05-present.
dont get me wrong, they are great bikes, and i have had a couple, but their styling is outdated IMO, just like the R1's they finally did something to step it up for 09

true, from the side it resembles the 08 1000rr in the front.
and dont count on any significant changes for 2010, as it will be the same as 09 with color changes only and MINIMAL changes im sure

The 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 is here and its lighter, shorter, more powerful and faster than ever.

Engine: 60mm shorter from front to rear. Over-square with a bore of 74.5mm and a stroke of 57.3mm. Compression ratio increased from 12.5 to 12.8:1. Suzuki claims increased tuning potential.Valves are larger and titanium, the pistons are forged and the conrods are shot-peened. The Drive Mode selector is now located on the left handlebar and offers three power delivery maps. A slipper clutch keeps everything in line while slowing down.

Suspension: 2009 Kawasaki ZX-6R-style Show Big Piston Front (BPF) forks. They're supposed to be lighter, stronger and give better feedback. The rear shock has rebound damping, a collar preload adjuster and high- and low-speed compression damping adjustment

Brakes: 310mm front discs with monoblock calipers
Rider comfort: The fairing has been designed to reduce turbulence, while the footpegs are adjustable

Overall: A little faster, a little lighter, a little more powerful and a little smaller than before. But these are evolutionary, not revolutionary changes. The 2009 Yamaha R1 has its crossplane crankshaft. The 2009 Honda CBR1000RR has ABS. Like GSX-R1000s before it, we're sure this new one is a masterpiece of engineering, but will it compete in showrooms with flashier bikes?

Wow...with 191 hp - I can only imagine how many deaths we're gonna have in 2009 with Noobs wrecking, not to mention the high insurance all of us bikers are going to start paying pretty soon - with the latest scooter/bike crazy (blame the gas prices).

tsk tsk...
