After years of bike ownership and trade ins mainly due to faults, I think I have found a perfect bike. Sweet gearbox from day 1, never a false neutral, good from cold. Beautiful smooth fuel delivery from low, tons of torque, mad high end performance, so much acceleration that you can only fully open it up to throttle stop for a few secs max in any gear. Comfy seat, good sport bike fairing protection, excellent suspension from stock. Excellent economy for a sport bike, front brembos with so much feel that I feel abs would hinder it and not necessary, bloody good looks. Light weight 202 kg wet unreal. The ultimate reason, a mechanics joy to work on unlike the majority of bikes. A long production history of the same bike has ironed out any flaws. On street from stock needs no mods to get a grin and will give all bikes a good run. This is my first ever perfect bike. I could go on, but I cannot flaw it and I am extremely critical of any bike, as I have owned and test ridden multitudes.
This is what real men ride. Had it for about three weeks and would not say a bad thing about it. It cornes so stable yet so fast. Really easy to turn in and feels really planted out of the corners. I ride in the lake district and all of the bumps in the roads are like take off ramps for my little gixxer. Love it!!! Any of you R1 rider want a race to sort it all out just get in touch...
Overall: last time i try riding GXS 1000 in 2002, and here in 2007 i have another chance to riding new version claiming by marketing manager, mix of motogp technology and superbike technology, with several fix on injection component, supension and aerodinamics.
Overall this bike has been mine for 10 beautiful months, and i really cant fault it in any way; mechanically or otherwise.
It's a good looking bike, that has the power when requested for it, although it can seem like a tamed kitten under 4000, once breached it will go nuts. The fact that it is built small in comparison with equivelents, is amazing i can throw it around like its a 600. Overall this bike has been mine for 10 beautiful months, and i really cant fault it in any way; mechanically or otherwise.
Looks sexy,and acts sexy until it hits 4000 rpm, then the monster is ready to be unleashed!!!
