2006 suzuki GSXR1000

can anyone tell me how the 06 gixxer 1000s are, thinking of buying one? I really like the way they look but what about performance compared to other bikes in the 1000 class.

They are a bad ass bike! WAY TOO MUCH POWER for about anybody on the street! If you aren't Rossi or Hayden its a pointless amount of power!

yeah i heard there pretty powerfull, but its not going to be a stunt bike or a race bike, i really want it for a show bike, i like the way they look dropped. mabey streched a little. but is it too much power, i have a 02 gixxer 600 as a play toy, stunt a little, but have ridden a r1 a few times and it didnt seem to powerful, or should i say something i couldnt handle. but i heard the new gixxer 1000s are beasts.

if you dont even know how much power it has...(ie not up to date on the bike world)...you arent ready for it!!!

its a serious riders bike....and if you dont know what the bikes are capable of...you arent ready for it!!!


175hp crank hp...160-165 at the wheel.....its fast!!!!!! and very touchy.

and like usual....the gixxer 1000 is still setting the performance standards!

its meant to be ridden..not shown!!! lol

It has quite a bit more power than my 04 r1. The main difference that i could tell was with the throttle control (it is REALLY touchy), but that is riding in the twisties. Sounds like you are used to riding and everything though, and it doesnt sound like you plan on dragging too many knees since you plan on stretching it out, so i think you would like it alot. I think i'll be going back to suzuki on my next purchase.

Either the R1 and Gixxer are both excellent bikes. I like my R1 over my old suzuki, but I haven't rode a new 1k gixxer yet so I can't compare. Although I fit more comfortable on the 06 gixxer than my R1.
