  2. wow..... never been a huge suzzie fan, but that looks hot ;)
  3. 'bout time! I've had my eye on these beasties lately!
  4. Tell you what that aint a bad looking bike and the price isnt to bad either
  5. Hell Yeah! :cool:
    I've been looking around at a few mid-range bikes,
    Namely Yamaha FZ6 and the Suzuki SV650, but this might be a real contender, nice looking and nice price!
  6. Good looking bike, realistic price, and a direct competitor to Yams FZ6, but what is so 'streetfighter' about it? Its just another naked middleweight built to a price.
  7. Yarr, apparently everything without fairings is a street fighter these days...

    Damn nice looking bike though streetfighter or not...

    Still haven't seen any power specs on it anywhere. Anyone got any figures??
  8. yeah my understanding of a street-fighter, is a one of custom style bike, anything that is mass produced is hardly unqiue, still this will be one bike i will be adding to my list once of restrictions

    I've been waiting for this bike to come out. :grin: :grin:
  10. Ta LouLou, seen those.

    Still searching for the magic Hp/Kw/Nm figures tho...
  11. Boring!

    Could have been so much better and more like the mighty 'B-King'.
  12. can you explain for us that aren't aware? I am guessing you are referring to the bandit? :?
  13. B-king was Suzuki's naked, supercharged concept bike, based on a Hayabusa- a true streetfighter!

    If it ever makes it into production, I'm sure they will tame it down quite a bit.
  14. @ Loulou4:

    Still waiting on the power specs! :p
  15. sheesh... that's a lot cheaper then I thought it would be :eek:

    Suddenly the gsr is in contention for my next bike pick :?
  16. This is what it is meant to be based on...looks a bit 'pale' in comparisson don't you think :?:

    It is very cheap but I'd personally rather pay the extra and get something cool.
  17. that B king is wild! I dont mind the new suzi there for that sort of money, good buying, but i want to know the amount of ponies it has too
  18. ah ok thanks for that as for differences personally both look hot, prefer the tail on the gsr over the b-king, but hey thats whats great about personal taste.... but yeah geez the specs are just a little different though ;)
