What Is It?

The Suzuki GSX-R1000 is a dedicated sports bike and is powered by a liquid cooled 988 cc inline four engine, producing 160 bhp at 10,800 rpm and maximum torque at 8,500 rpm.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame and swingarm
  • Dual 320 mm discs up front with Tokico six piston calipers
  • 220 mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Adjustable 43 mm Kayaba upside down fork
  • Adjustable Kayaba rear shock
  • Steering damper
  • 4->2->1 exhaust system
  • Titanium down pipe
  • 6 speed gearbox

The GSX-R1000 replaces the larger and heavier GSX-R1100 as Suzuki's class leading machine and takes on the Yamaha R1.

This new model shares many features with the smaller GSX-R750, including the frame and a slightly re-designed engine but focuses on outright power. Married with the super light chassis it's game changing.

The 3-spoke 17" wheels take a Bridgestone BT010 120/70 tyre at the front and a 190/50 at the rear.

Colours: Blue/white, grey/black, red/white/black, silver/black
