Suzuki's New Naked

with GSXR600 powerplant:

Me thinks it resembles Honda Hornet 600.

Yup, it does look like the Hornet. The seat reminds me of the one on my F4.

Yep, Looks like my 919... only with the Suzuki, let's make it a bit, better... thing.

Aesthetically, it seems smoother.

Integrated signal lamps (should be a standard for all bikes)

And.. I .. don't .. know... A ROCKET POWERPLANT!

i think i like it.

Is it replacing the SV 650??? I sure hope not.

Also, what is up with the banana seat? Do they really need to do that? That automaticaly rules it out for me.

Hi All-

Are those directionals/running lights incorporated into the front of the tank? The headlamp looks great in my opinion.

It's only coming out for Europe and possibly Australia, no word about arriving to United States. So the integrated indicators featured only for Europe, as with all the bikes we get, they're probably going to be fitted with standard mounted signals, so aftermarkets once again.

It won't be exactly the same as Gixxer, it'll be detuned for more low-end and midrange, like they've done with FZ6 and FZ1. So expect a regular Gixxer to be faster either way. I don't think it's going to replace SV, which has its own niche.
