Gixxer is a nickname for The Suzuki GSX-R. They come in 600, 750, and 1000. There is a large following (me included) that think that they are the best sport bike on the planet.
There are 4 major manufacturers for great, affordable sportbikes.
1. Suzuki (GSX-R)
2. Honda (CBR-RR)
3. Kawasaki (ZX-R or RR)
4. Yamaha (YZF-R)
Everyone has their favorites, but in reality they are all neck and neck.
From year to year they one up each other in very small differences, but for the most part are all very comprable.
The idea is to pick your favorite company for whatever reason (looks, style, comfort, colors, racers, price, ect.).
Welcome to sportbikes!
