2012 GSX-R1000.

Sweeet!!!

http://www.suzukicycles.com/Product%...gory=sportbike

2012 GSX-R1000

Faster evolution is a hallmark of the GSX-R1000’s engine. And 2012 brings another quick step ahead. Reaffirming the legendary motorcycle’s claim to the top are improved throttle response, increased power and acceleration at mid-range engine speeds, and better fuel economy. Refinements ranging from a new stainless steel 4-2-1 exhaust system to completely redesigned pistons. The chassis, suspension and braking systems have also been refined for enhanced performance resulting in a reduction in weight of over four pounds.

For 2012, the GSX-R1000 lets everyone know at a glance that it’s the latest generation of the championship-winning supersport bikes that have dominated racetracks around the world. It features new colors and a variety of new styling elements, including new sporty instruments, new black fork tubes and new red pinstripes on the wheels. Put it all together and the GSX-R1000 offers incredible engine performance from idle to redline, smoother suspension performance, even more responsive handling and superior braking performance — exactly what you need to Own The Racetrack.

I feel the same way. There's really no substitute for top dollar components. I was shocked when I got my R1, it has dual 6 piston calipers, but they still don't perform as well as the one 4 pot brembo caliper on my bmw... These braking components, in my eyes, are the downfall of all bikes.

Oh , please tell me the fading rim strips aren't the next new phase....the main thing I like about that bike, besides the overall awesomeness, is the one color near zero logo paint scheme.

They look identical to the ones that have been used on the gsxr 1k since '05 (at least '07 for sure, I had one) so I'm imagining the price isn't too painful.

Pulling them off is 2 bolts and 1 plug. 15 minutes tops unless you're a herpdurp with a wrench.
