MCN - - 2019 NEW BIKES -

O 999cc in­line-four O 148bhp / 80ftlb O 215kg (kerb) O £TBC

It might just be a restyled GSX-S1000, but that means a very good bike is lurk­ing be­neath the evoca­tive sur­face. It’s a homage, rather than a replica, but the chis­elled nose, square head­lamp, fat flanks and old-school lo­gos con­spire rather well. Un­der the pointy body­work is a 148bhp in­line­four with 3-mode trac­tion con­trol, ABS through Brembo ra­dial calipers, a new LCD dash, LED lights, 43mm fully-ad­justable KYB fork and preload/ re­bound ad­justable shock. Price TBC.

The 1980s are back in fash­ion
