A SOHC 250cc twin in a "GSXR"...in 2017? Wake up Suzuki!
They included "Katana" in the name as well, so as to excuse themselves from giving it competitive power and weight.
What were they thinking? It's too expensive, down on power, up on weight, and doesn't fit anywhere in the small bike market.
I have 2 older Suzukis (SV650s - 1st and 2nd gens) that I like a lot and don't plan to sell anytime soon, but the "new" SV650 doesn't even appeal to me. The messed it up when they decided to go to a "Gladius", and tried to redeem themselves by bringing back the SV - which is more Gladius than SV. I'd by the FZ-07 before the new SV.
Suzuki is in the pits right now if you ask me.
