gsx-r 1000 wheelie

I hear that the gsx-r 1000 pulls the front tire off the ground very easy during hard riding,but does it do it to the point of breaking over backwards?

if u snapped the throttle back i think u might be able too, i never rode a litre bike before, also, im pretty sure they lift a bit in the front under hard but controlled acceleration. but only to the point of the front feeling weightless or a few inches

Be cranking on the throttle of the GSXR-1000 to hit a small hump in the road & the front end will take a hike. They noted when they first were testing them a few yrs ago.

Any good Liter bike will float the f/end if you give it a chance.
