Very impressive I must admit, is it the S model ? Is the base model the same ?

Closer to the litre bikes than I thought it would be but it is 5k more !

There is however no contest looks wise I love the 1098 altho my wallet has gone for a litre IL4 and 2k of mods suspension and engine wise

I love the looks and now it has more than enough power. If only they could have made them for 8k ish I would have had one. As it is with my new litre bike costing 6500 the difference is way too much just for better looks

Yeah but it has proper brakes and suspension - the chassis spec is in another league compared to the Gixxer so that's where a fair amount of the wedge is going. Ohlins forks, Ohlins shock, Brembo radial calipers..no to mention the onboard telemetry, the wheels etc. So you're not comparing like with like.

Mind you...it's all academic. I have trouble stretching my 800ss on northern roads and it's amply fast....Hmmmm.....maybe I'll stick with the 800.
