That's a much better review than most magazines have given the GSX-S750.

I bet it is awesome- and frankly, just about exactly what we Honda loyalist wanted the CB1000R spec sheet to read back in 2012.

I'm not in the market for a new bike, but if I was this would be topping the short list.

160hp would have given some of the super nakeds a run for their money, especially at 10g's. The faired version looks like absolute dog shit.

That would also definately be at the top of my list if I were in the market for a naked. Everything the Honda should have been, well priced and a decent spec sheet.

Agreed. This would have been perfect if it was released 3-5 years ago. Torque is still quite a bit behind the curve as well. The name of the game is torque!

As such, this is behind the Times before it even hits the dealers. But sadly it is a leap past Honda's current naked.

Not bad at all, if I was in the market I'd be tempted to throw my leg over her.
So nice to see they used a legit motor that makes good power. My 919 really lacks that wants to kill you feeling my GSX-R1000 always gives me.

Over all, looks to be a solid bike.

At that price it will probably be strapped with cheap parts like the new Strom. Looks awesome though

I wish I needed one. Honda doesn't have the guts to make something like this.

Wikipedia says 123 hp, 75 lb ft tq for the Tuono. Some of those Tuonos are getting old. My friend's is an 04 model. $5k for an 11 year old bike sounds about right. As much as I like Euro bikes, that Suzie would stomp the guts out of an 11 year old Tuono.

And who rides a "dry" bike?

I'm glad mine's only 5 years old.


On topic, I kinda like the non-faired version. I like the choice they made for the motor.

This guy didn't like it for commuting. He said it has a jerky throttle response. Other than that he loved the bike.

Nothing that can't be fixed, im sure. The SD 990's had the same issue.

You're looking at the 1st Gen. I was referring to the 2nd Gen, 2006-2010.
