The video that will make you want a 2012 GSX-R1000
WITH so many electronic riding aids appearing on todayís superbikes, thereís a growing discourse between riders who value them and those who loathe them.
Which is why Suzukiís latest advert cleverly addresses the issue by hinting at the possibility that fancy electronic aids might not be a substitute for riding to our own limits, not one set by electronics.
Suzukiís GSX-R1000 model for 2012 doesnít have any of the trickery which is appearing on rival machines. This is not to say the GSX-R1000 is unchanged from last year. Suzuki made thousands of small internal changes to the machine which when added all up make a huge difference.
But rather than Suzuki fretting and worrying that it hasnít added all the latest technology to its 2012 model, it is using this fact to full advantage but tapping into the real essence of what it means to ride a bike.
Which is why Suzuki has made this short of Simon Crafar doing an immense powerslide on the latest GSX-R1000. It looks like he just might loose it, but that's the point - it suitably shows that it all comes down to our minds and body to keep control. The limit is yours Ė and this is title of the video embedded below.
Sit back, enjoy and replay. Possibly five or six timesÖ.
