Fz1 inline 4 detuned r1 motor with high bars steel frame with a rake of 26 deg and a trail of 104 mm.To top it of a dry weight of 208kg.Tls V-twin with fi and ram air(doesn`t sound very detuned to me)Low bars,full ally frame with a rake of 23 and a trail of 94.5 mm(funny very simalar to 916)with a weight of 191kg.Just how are these to bikes in the same class they have tires?Gold wing and r1 are in the same class to hey?both have full fairing.Was the fz1 with a clearance prob to, wasnt just the can either was pegs as well but there is always rear sets and a after market can.So how you plan on fixing the slow steering of the fz1 gas axe?As for the gsxr 1000 comment,id like to see that alot of ppl are having trouble with that much bike,amazing bike if your can handle it but with your comments i guess you have only been riding a short time
You do know there IS a difference between a TLS and a TLR,right??? I was just commenting it's a shame the TLR never progressed to a top level competition bike.
As far as your sarcastic comments....I have been riding for thirty four years.....how about you??
A lot of how a bike performs is the rider's ability not necessarily just bike,keep that in mind too. And yes ground clearance,modifications,etc,etc,yada,yada......
The whole basis of the start of this forum posting WAS:what will Suzuki do to replace the TL series,not which is better than which! If you want to argue,fine,but that will have to come from someone other than me!!
We are talking about a "Style" of bike here,not comparing performance figures,ok?? You know full fairing, half fairing and naked,okay?? You know: will it be similar to the SV650s?? A style of bike like Strada said:"All around riding."
Relax....don't be so angry...sheesh!!
