Oh, you can get them to work pretty good, but a USD just gives you a stiffer tube and easier to access external adjustments..

A Showa USD fork, radial brakes and a radial MC and the bike would rock. Drop about 10-15 pounds off of it and it would really rock.

betcha a new GSXR or Busa front end with radial brakes wouldn't be hard. Dump emmisions, aftermarket exhaust and theres your 15-20 lbs.

heck, swingarm looks similar to the GSXR, cheap shock upgrade...

raptors and rockets is notorious for releasing so called pics of new bikes, that are completely fake, and designed in house by their photoshoppers, so yes, it's fake. is suzuki planning an updated SV? i'm sure...will it look like that tho? doubt it.

I still prefer the looks, especially the frame, of the naked 1st gen. This coming from a guy that had a 2nd gen sport.

It's stiffer and I think lighter.

Based on looks alone, the 1st gen looks better.

Lighter, stronger, more rigid, better handling.

Back on topic: I'd like to see it, hopefully with some better suspension (maybe a fully adjustable conventional fork ala '03 GSXR600?), and better brakes.
