So yammy is the only one of the big 4 not making bikes that look like huge pieces of chit.

Doesnt look bad, but that can rediculous. I'd have an aftermaket on that thing before it left the showroom.

The front fairing/air inlet looks like an older Kawi!

I like it! And the exhaust isn't too bad- at least it hugs the line of the swingarm instead of looking like a weird rocket pack/cork.

shoulda left it the same. same engine/chassis, why the unnecessary huge muffler? the headlights reminds me of a power ranger lol (phenix rider). the colored seat is a good look though. other than that, its the same bike i got!

Can has to go, but that is true with most stock bikes. The rest I like, the headlight looks better from what I can see of it.

Wonder what happened to the stubby, looks pretty much the same as the 07 except the headlight and weird exhaust chit. I doubt that is the real bike, suzuki is usually the best about listening to it's squidly buyers in making the bike look the way they want.

600rr pwnz the r6 once you do the 03-06 taillight mod, looks better in track plastics as well. Plus it pwnz it soundly on the track.

I think they kept the center light, but added two side headlights.
think CBR headlights with GSXR light in center... that's how it looks to me.

it's pretty much the same bike, they didn't do that much to it. It's lack of midrange is still there. That is why it was released early with the other 08's that stayed pretty much the same, not much of an update this year.

I dont think I would of changed the 07 gixxer's can if I had gotten it. It looks fine and sounds decent. That's all a slip on is good for anyway.

the only thing I dont care for on that suzuki is the can. they should have stuck with the stubby can they had on the K6/K7 models, which look sweet from the dealer.
