Nice bike... there's a new 2019 SE LT+ at a dealer near me. Didn't take it for a ride though.

Sweet bikes for sure .... I really enjoy my 16 and looking forward to a 21. Frontline was right as usual
But a lot of $$ for a buy in lol

I do not have a snatchy throttle with my 20 .. I had read it was fixed in previous years. I do ride with full power/ traction control off and have zero issues with being smooth. As for compared to the 9 the Suzuki just fits me better in every way. The Ergos, power, brakes and suspension ( front as rear still sucks lol ) are all improvement for me. If there is one thing the GSXS probably has a bit more  vibes through the bars. I would need to ride back to back to know for sure. If the border ever opens back up and I still have the Suzuki CJ and I will do a really side by side comparison.

Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

I am definitely not knocking the 9 as it is a great bike .... just for me there was something missing.
But what do I know I am going to sell the Suzuki ( if the title ever shows up ) and I have not hit a thousand miles in her yet lol

Yeah, the Z900 is one of the best in it's class. I see the direction you're going though... pillion is a big plus with the Versys 1000.

Anyway, sorry for the off-topic. I think a Versys 1000 would be a better pick for marko1962 and his co-rider.

The 2019 at a dealer near me. Don't know the price, but it can't be peanuts, lol. 1000 SE LT+

I'm going to check out the Suzuki and see how it fits, thank you!
