In the daylight and when I saw one at night I though it was hot. The one I saw today wanted to make me puke. I think I am turning into a Yamaha man. God what an ugly bike...thoughts, opinions?

what's interesting is I couldn't really tell the 1000's apart from the 600's

sizewise they're about the same

Rascus, did you notice how I kept staring at the key in the 1000's ignition?

I wanted the salesguy to start it up so badly :D

I guess beauty is really in the eye of the beholder because I like the looks of the 05 GSXR 1000 except for the pipe. I sat on one at a dealership and was amazed at how small and light it felt. With an aftermarkt pipe I think they look great.

I'm not sure why everyone hates the gixxer 1000 so much. I absolutely love it. I think it looks great (yes, even the can!) and it feels amazing (just from sitting on it for a short time at the dealership)

I love how it looks. The thing that always tells me it is a 1000 first is the integrated headlights/mirrors. Only thing about the looks is they need to change that "gixxer" blue/white - yellow/black paint scheme to something else, or at least change it to a significantly different blue/white - yellow/black paint scheme if they must keep up tradition.

I think it's a pretty good looking bike. Infact, I think all of the big 4's current litre production line looks pretty good.

DITTO...... I dont really care for any of the new Gixxers... I had a 97 GSXR600 and loved the whole 97 and up lineup... until the new styles came out. Then again, maybe it just needs to grow on me some. At first I didn't really care for the 2001 body style Mustangs but now... my wife owns a Cobra Convertible

Front fairing is pretty gross, yep. I also don't like the shape of the pipe. I hate this new triangular thing that's going on.

The R1 will always be the best looking bike and that is just a plain and simple FACT. :eatpop

The headlight is shitty on the new gixxer, but everything else is sweet looking IMO. Not to mention its super small and light, there is a reason its the best in its class. If i was to buy a bike for looks..the 1000RR takes it hands down, then the Ninja. Why does everyone like the R1 styling so much? other than the fact that everyone has one (in MN anyway), i think it looks like a bird lol. The older ones look better.

I feel the same way. Everybody and their uncle has an R1. The new 1KRR is really nice. Reliable, good ergos, and not as common as the R1 (which scores some points in my book).
