2011 Suzuki GSX1250FA First Ride







I think all sportbike riders would prefer 150+ hp at the rear wheel. However, not all sportbike riders want to contort themselves onto the modern crop of superbikes. This ride review is somewhat disappointing, the added cc's of the gsx made it most likely of the semi-sports to have that rip-snarl power (even the "trick" vfr can't provide). I guess I'll have to stick with my old hooligan bike, since the cb1000, ninja 1000, z 1000, vfr, and now gsx are all too neuterd to consider a viable replacement. Maybe in a few years I'll pick up a c14, at least it's 135ish hp at the wheel
