Bike(s):
Waiting For New 07 GSXR









Send a message via Yahoo to DarkSide
The new 07 Gsxr 1k Vs Zx-10.

I have made my decision to purchse a new bike for my Birthday in Febuary. Of course now I am research crazy since my last purchase of the Limited edition 05 Busa. So many changes for the Suzuki listing will take a while but here are some.

2007 Suzuki GSX-R1000
All new frame
New more compact Dual Throttle Valve fuel injection system
Adjustable back-torque limiting clutch
New larger radiator
New Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System
New engine management system

But should I go with the sure bet Kawasaki or chance it on the new GSXR ?

I've heard of too many frames on Suzukis cracking to ever want to chance it, so I'd go with the 10R.

You going racing? I don't think those changes make a bit of difference otherwise. :dontknow:

if you want performance go with the GsxR
but Kawi is a lengendary bike

it all depends on what you are going to be doing
both are good on track
Kawi is a more smooth delivery of power specailly on top end
GsxR is just cray raw power thru the whole power ban which is huge
also they have different rider position
if you dont mind comfort versus performance

You should race my sucky kawasaki, so then i could own you.


The new GSXR is going to be a bad bike, but I would at least wait to see if they have any problems.
