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 Convertiblestarrt86 said:i saw a kid on one the other day about droped it at a stop light. That thing is nasty looking. It made me want to buy the 1000rr even more
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.djt81185 said: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?

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).alphaandomega said: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.
