The latest GSX-R1000 features significant upgrades across the board, including a completely re-designed engine and chassis, with major suspension, brake and bodywork developments.
The 999cc, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine, featuring the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel-injection system, is lighter and shorter and delivers improved performance and throttle response throughout the entire rpm range, while also reducing emissions.
Developed on the racetrack, the new Suzuki is fitted with two large-volume, MotoGP-inspired titanium mufflers and a large and efficient trapezoidal-shaped radiator to reduce drag.
With a new layout, ratios in the six-speed transmission have been carefully selected for optimum racetrack performance, while the GSX-R1000 is also fitted with a revised back-torque-limiting clutch offering improved lever feel and feedback.
The compact engine enabled engineers to create an all-new, more compact chassis, with a new twin-spar cradle frame, 10mm-shorter wheelbase and 33mm-longer swingarm, improving handling and acceleration on the racetrack.
Co-developed by Suzuki and Showa engineers and proven in the gruelling Suzuka 8 Hour, the GSX-R1000 features a revolutionary Big Piston Frontfork (BPF) front suspension system.
If it sounds good on paper, the GSX-R1000 feels even better on the road or track.
Ride it yourself and experience the sheer performance of the world’s most successful open-class racing machine.
