I'll bet that Gixxer 1000 kicks some serious booty in the comparos.

Ah yeah! They're playing my song! Let's see here: the '00 Gixxer weighs about 420 full of fluids and makes 123 rear wheel hp. (If I remember the magazine comparo correctly) So, it stands to reason that the 1000Gixxer should weighs about 430-435 full of fluids and probably will make about 140 very happy rear wheel horsies. Can you say "I'm cashing in my IRA and selling my soul for this bike?" I knew you could. I will be. That's for sure!!!!!! Oh yeah, fuel injected to boot. :D

remember... yamaha isn't going to sit back and watch suzi take their crown...

i'm waiting for the R1 to get FI and ram air...

think bout, the gsxr1000 will a new bike next year (yes still awesome) but the R1 will be 3rd generation... yamaha would have had 3 years to perfect and upgrade the R1...

Hmm, okay, I buy in on the "3 years to perfect the R1" school of thought. Awesome bike, that R1 is. Me just being a Suzy Man (loyal, but not to a fault, have owned a Honda and would purchase any of the top 4 if their product bit me the right way)I would probably stick w/the Gixxer. I've read some info on the projected new Gixxer, and the motor is supposed to be all-new, not a stroked/bored 750. The chassis will be the same as the 750. The 1000 motor shouldn't weigh more than a few pounds more than the 750, so upsetting the fine balance of the chassis shouldn't be an issue. Granted there are lots of fine details to work out as far as getting the power to the ground type of thing, but consider that Suzuki built the '00 750 to compete in WSB type competition w/ 180hp high strung race motors and all of a sudden, a 140-150 lump doesnt' seem too far fetched. I will wait unti all the mags have had their way w/it and see what they think first, though. If not, I'll see if I can find a leftover '00 750 (new) and rock 'n roll from there. Cheers.
