If ever there was a hunting ground for the GSR750, surely the tightly-packed London streets is it.
Sharp-looking, nimble urban tool
You buy it with your head, not your heart

It's obvious when you think about it: but there aren't many motorcycles out there that create a new niche when they enter the market - most new models are an answer to a rival manufacturer's offering or a slight tweak on an existing theme.

When a bike does barge its way onto the scene, creating a new niche, it's either seriously popular or left on the shelf. Take the second-coming of the V-Max, it looked promising on paper but no-one bought one. Then look at Ducati's Diavel; a similar formula that no-one said they wanted but they've been a real success for Ducati.

The thing about the niche-breakers is that, because they don't have any direct rivals, they become must-haves and everyone falls over each other trying to put a deposit down. If it wins your heart, no-ones going to stop you buying it. If it doesn't then it comes down to cost.
