Gixxer!!!!

Full story and pic in link.

New Suzuki Gixxer - Motorcycle news: New bikes - Visordown

THOSE of you who refer to Suzuki’s GSX-R models as “Gixxers” (you know who you are) had better get out of the habit – since the Suzuki Gixxer is now an official model.

More to the point, it’s one without the sort of image you might hope to conjure with the ‘Gixxer’ nickname, applied as it once was to streetfighter GSX-R7/11s and bringing to mind the inevitable images of combat trousers and Simpson Bandit lids airbrushed to look like skulls.

I hated "fazer" during my fz6 days.

I actually would don't mind that 150cc jr streetfighter. I dont think they sell small displacement bikes in the us other than scooters. I'm thinking of buying a very old scooter as a project bike.

Serious. Rockets are far more powerful and somehow manage to not snap in half at the weld. :D

Yep I immediately stop talking motorcycles with anyone who uses the term gixxer.

I also hate the term crotch rocket but I recently heard the term dick missile which is much more fitting.
