Okay this is bugging the crap out of me... I've never heard anyone actually say the word aloud so I have to ask... It's sort of like the LiNUX thing (Line-ucks or Linn-ix)...

Gixxer how do you pronounce it when you say it.

I am assuming it's a soft 'G' as in Giraffe.... like jickser?

am I wrong?

Naw, it's pronounced with a soft "G", as in French. And in reality, in French it translates to "Boat Anchor". :D

If I hear someone say Ghyx-er (the soft g like gheto with some h to it) it's like nails on a black board.

"jixer" is appropriate as it's how the G in G-S-X-R sounds IMO.

I hear ya CBR Bro but they bring it on themselves with these alphabet soup bikes. 4 syllables is too long for casual conversation and gets annoying. G-S-X-R versus jix-er, small difference but I'm lazy and not alone.

I'm with ya there. North America seems to be plagued by alpha-numeric designations, while Europe gets the cool names like Fireblade and Thundercat etc..
