At the opposite end of the scale, so to speak, is the featherweight Suzuki. With its low mass (an amazing 426 pounds full of fuel), peakier engine and more softly calibrated suspension (an expected side benefit of its low weight), you'd expect the GSX-R to be a handful in the fast stuff-flighty, maybe, like a middleweight stuffed full of horsepower and adrenaline. Not so. In fact, it rails. Thanks in part to a longish wheelbase and superb suspension componentry, the Suzuki is totally composed in fast sweepers, yet retains the kind of maneuverability that is the whole reason engineers sweat grams and tenths of millimeters in weight distribution.
