The limited production run builds on the £2,850 cheaper GSX-R1000 with fancy Showa suspension, a bi-directional quickshifter, launch control system, lighter upper triple clamp and light weight battery.
There are also some cosmetic details such as the LCD dash being inverted with a cool black face and LED position lights but it's 1 kg heavier.
The engine uses Variable Valve Timing (VVT) to increase high end power without sacrificing anything low down. Suzuki's implementation of VVT is simple but effective, using 12 Steel balls in slanted grooves within the intake cam sprocket and centrifugal force to shift them at high rpms.
The new 6-spoke 17" wheels take a 120/70 Bridgestone Battlax Street RS10 tyre at the front and a 190/55 at the rear.
