is it just me does the 2006-2007 gsxr front ugly

why didn't suzuki make the 08-09 gsxr front end into the 06-07s. I recently bought a 2006 gsxr 600. The side and rear looks amazing, but its just the one headlight that makes me want to sell the gsxr every time.

Lol thats funny, I think the k6-k7 gixxers are the nicest. the 2008-2010's to me are ugly. The 2011's are okay.

Having been a 07 gixxer owner, I think the 06-07 front looks way better than any of the later models... In fact I think anything past 07 is butt ugly.

I hate the look of bikes with 2 headlights and only one side on for DRL. I like symmetry and find asymmetrical designs look like something was designed wrong. Sure the 2 headlight design looks better parked, yet once only one light is on they look stupid.

To me, it's like boobs. A single one in the middle seems odd. 2 looks "right" but like what taylor192 said, when only one side lights up for DRL, then that looks silly too.
Now, imagine a bike with three headlights just like Total Recall.

If I were to choose a GSXR I'd favor the 2010 styling.

You could drive around with your hi's on if you wanted looks.

There's some "movies" with the tri-boob, not as cool as would have thought.

One looks great:



Two looks good, yet only on certain bikes:



Three only looks good on the big bikes:

Some twin headlight bikes look like an insect. With the mirrors as antennas.
