I am not sure if the photo makes justice of the bike. Too many reflections from lights and not enough contrast with the background. What's with the mat black plastic at the front?

I looked at pics on Suzukis' website. Yep don't like it there either. It has that profile trisomy 21 thing going on just like the 08 1000RR. And the weird bulbous curved exhaust/silencer cans, yeeeaaaahhhh. Old school tribar rims.

Everyone likes something different though.

You can't tell from the pic (blackberry camera phone), the frame is hammertone. It is different and I think it looks pretty good.

The headlight is hideous. The choices of matte black on the front to try and tone down that bulbous looking nose just made it more obvious. The uppers above the GSXR logo extend like surf board tips towards the front wheel. I feel like Andrew Dice Clay is going to show up looking for his Ford Fairlane tail fins. Never been a big fan of the long side exhausts either. And those things are monstrous.

I'm sure it handles great and makes phenomenal power, but the front end looks like a modern art masterpiece.

from the pic i dont like the faring in the front and the HUGE exhaust but other than that its up to par
but im sure better pics would do it justice

Ya I mean, honestly, every "new bike" that comes out just about gets distaste from a third of the people, adoration from another third, and ambivelance from the remaining. However, this picture does the bike absolutely no justice at all. That poor bike needs a better photographer

ive never been one to judge a bike on its cans, as those are usually the first thing to go anyway. theyre ugly as sin, but there are only a handful of bikes ever made that had good looking factory pipes.
