      Test rode one a few years ago and loved it. Pretty big and heavy but stupid amounts of grunt. Seemed easy enough to flick around as well. Much love for pulling away in top gear from pretty much idle.

        Ive considered getting one a few years old as a project. They're good stock but bare in mind that the frame on them is very old tech and likes to twist when pushed. Upgrades to shocks, forks & brakes improve the handling a great deal and you certainly wont regret spending a few bucks on such things.

        That engine is a pure gem though. It has more potential for stupidity than just about anything else on the market. Obscene torque figures can be coaxed out of them if you're prepaired to get your hands a little dirty. Im talking figures in excess of 180nm. That equates to power wheelies in lots of gears and tyres that dont last long

        Great bike for long trips with plenty of fuel and storage. Very comfy two up aswell.

        The biggest bonus is the price. Its about to get a little better too id say as Suzuki wind up production soon.

          thanks guys, ZX14 insurance was a bit too much for me. this is a lot better, and just as comfy.

          seems like a good choice!

            You seriously wont regret it. Out of the crate the ZX14 will lunch it. With a bit of coaxing, the GSX will hold its own if not embarrass the ZX.

                Thats the one and only thing right there that id consider trading the MT on. Ditch those fucking rediculous zorts and chuck a nice set of devils or the like on there and its all good.

                  A touch under 250 kgs doesn't really bother me. If I were to consider it I wouldn't want it black, and the blue Suzuki number would look more at home in a museum so it'd be up for a custom paint job.

                  The large under seat storage/tank size sounds alright, though.

                        So you're telling me if someone threw you the keys to a 'charged B-King, you say "No thanks, it's a bit too powerful for me"?
                        If the answer's honestly "yes", then I'm revoking your heterosexual male card.

                          No see, i could do that. Its some one elses ride thus would be treated with the utmost care and respect. If it were mine, Id be torn between twist the wrist and sanity.
