With seven AMA Superbike championships, a World Superbike championship, numerous regional titles, and a cult following that borders on the edge of a religion for some members, the Gixxer is destined to be a success no matter what we write about it here. Yet Suzuki brings an all-new GSX-R1000 to the Smackdown skirmish for 2007.
