Why all the Hate on the Gixxers?

I have a Gixxer 750 and love it. I have seen threads titled, "Proof Gixxer owners are tools" and hate against Gixxers in other threads.

Why all the hate?

I like gixxers but won't buy one bc the rep they have. It's always some bald guy. No gear. Flip flops. And doesn't even know what the a r6 or cbr is, don't even mention an SV to em, they'll think your talking about a plane or some . My girlfriend who isn't even into bikes can spot a gsxr.

Hey man, don't take it personally, that's the thing now, lots of guys (and girls) under 30 are buying GSXR's and that's because they are strong bikes. I like them even though I ride Kawi but a lot of kids buy them because they want to do wheelies and be hooligans even though the bike is a good bike. Take no offense, it's just the new stereotype like when my bike was made it was called the Couchasaki because it was reviewed with a VFR (which is another bike I LOVE) it's just the time for people to hate on what was the BEST a few years ago. As long as you are not one of the people who give it a bad name my getting arrested or dying from doing something stupid you don't have to worry because you have a really nice bike!

Thanks bro, great explanation! No one has ever directed any hate on me or my bike personally, I was just wondering where it came from.

I get you, I never got the hate either but when I bought my bike back in '02 it was compared to a Honda interceptor (they say for comfort reasons) but all that aside it was a 4 year ama winner for the last of the carb'd bikes. Still treats me well with proper care and I'm sure yours will to and one day they may be saying "Oh, you have a GSXR 750? They don't make them like that anymore", the sad thing will be that,.......... they won't. They will all be lighter, faster, more ridiculous, and as we get older it will be increasingly more difficult to handle and we will all have to buy Harleys No offense HD guys, suck it up!

As a former GSXR owner and if I ever buy another sport bike it will likely be another GSXR 600 I would like to mention:

I cant stand the term gixxer.

I have had 3 Suzukis and have never noticed anything QC should have caught. In fact I have never had a single issue with one. Never an issue with the 2 Kawasakis either.

I believe the Ninja owners started a campaign in the late 90's to move the squid name to the GSXR owners. Either that or they all bought "Gixxers". Either way in another 10 years another bike will come out and be labeled the stereotypical "squid bike". Just give it time.
