    I'd like to hear your opinion on this new bike coming out.  Would you get this or the Honda 1100NT if you were to make a change?



    Thanks

    The suzuki probably has more power, maybe more fun. Having not read anything about either bike though I'm just pulling that out of my ass.

    The engine in the Suzuki is a gem , its old school GSXR  1000 but has great updates and has performance that will rival anything else out there ...My experience with Suzuki has always been super , they will use a design longer than most but refine it making the result as good as any.
     
    This new Suzuki GSX-S  is a true Sport Touring motorcycle with the emphasis on Sport , would i trade my V1 in on one probably not as the V1 fills in many of the things that i was looking for in a touring motorcycle .
    Great comfort , excellent pillion accommodations , good mid range power and torque and i like the seat height . It would seem  the Suzuki is a more compact bike built for younger riders than me .    :039:

    The Suzi is already proven, the NT1100 will be much tamer, perhaps too tame for me.... sticking with the V-1000..... nevertheless, can't wait to see them both at the upcoming Toronto bike shows.... hope for a test ride in the spring......

    Keener,

    I agree. It'd dam hard to find a bike that checks all the boxes that the VI does.  I guess that's why I'm still looking.

    Whilst the Suzuki is a great sports tourer, who can live with a tank range of approx 140 miles? This, before you get two up with luggage.
    The NT doesn't have the go of the Suzuki, but perhaps a better touring option. My 13 versys is still a better option for me. If I were to change, I'd go for the Honda
