What it hasn’t lost over the years is its ability to hunt the apex of a corner, it gets the most updated version of the naked GSX-S1000F chassis
It gets 3 ride modes which are refreshingly simple: Active, which is essentially sport mode, Basic, which is self-explanatory and Comfort,
It is arguably the first genuinely comfortable Gixxer, and has evolved into a very nice place to be with an upright riding position
Unfortunately it isn’t adjustable, but it is very good and most riders will find it to be more than adequate for most riding conditions.
This really does put the “sport” in sport touring, it has nimble handling, tractable engine and a stable, supple suspension
As far as value is concerned, it has no rivals. Kawasaki comes pretty close with their Ninja 1000 SX in terms of pricing but doesn’t offer as much value
