The 09 will be completely redesigned. I am thinking about getting rid of the 08 I just got ahold of from my buddy since i have my 04 But i dont know. It was a deal I couldnt pass up. My thread will explain the whole sisuation. The 08 seems to have alot more front end feel than the pervious gsxrs that i can see. I really havent had much time to spend on it but it seems to be a pretty nice bike. I would personally just go with fits you best because all the liter bikes are very close and it really only amounts to the rider. The 750s are the way to go personally. Rode one of those and fell in love with it. Nimble as a 600 but the power of the big guys..

I thought they'd wait a couple more years to do a total redesign, but I may just hold off if that's the case (not like I have a choice until I sell the Duc).

It is likely that both the R1 and the G1K will both be redesigned for 2009.

Dear Snake ,

Please beg, borrow, or steal, a ride on an 04 - 05 ZX10.

Then when you grow up you can trade it for a mans bike.

The ZX14.

To my brother in Arkansas: You will not catch me purchasing a Kawasaki anytime in the near future. Of the "Big 4" Jap manufacturers, they are last on my list. They may be popular to everyone else on here, but they just don't suit me. That's not to say I wouldn't enjoy the opportunity to take out a newer ZX-10 or even a -14, but it would take a bit of convincing.

But if I'm ever in your neck of the woods, I'll stop by and beg you to let me take the 14 out for a spin

suspension suspension suspension is all i have to say about the kawi. They have great motors but cant keep the front end on the ground. I just call them unrully.. We have been trying to sort out my buddies 08 suspension for quite some time now... Yes suz will have a new gix next year. Have already been told by the dealership. I am a honda man but just stuck with good deals on suz. All depends on the rider..
