Performance, Innovation, Domination
GSX-R1000, the most powerful, hardest accelerating, cleanest running GSX-R ever. It is also the lightest and most aerodynamic GSX-R1000.
The King of Sportbikes
Now, in its 6th-generation the GSX-R1000 is redefining what it means to be the top performer. It embodies the life work and professional ambition of Suzuki engineers who are passionate about the GSX-R1000 and its place in motorcycle history. People who love riding and racing, enthusiasts determined to restore the GSX-R1000 to its proper title of The King of Sportbikes.
The most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R ever built. It’s also the most compact and most aerodynamic GSX-R1000, with smoother throttle response and better combustion efficiency. With a supremely effective electronic engine management system, derived from MotoGP technology, it maximises drivability from the 202PS engine without being complicated to use. It’s time to Own the Racetrack.
An All New Chassis
The new chassis is more compact and narrower. The new bolt-on rear subframe is now made of square aluminium tubing, reducing weight by 38%. A new aluminium swingarm is braced on both sides instead of on one, to improve weight and rigidity balance.
The GSX-R1000’s Showa BPF (Big Piston Front) forks out-perform the suspension fitted to the standard models sold by competitors. The design eliminates the internal cartridge assembly used in conventional forks and instead uses a larger piston riding against the inside wall of the inner fork tube itself. The design responds well to small bumps with more effective compression damping, especially during hard braking on the racetrack. The Showa rear shock works with a progressive linkage and rebound damping and both high-speed and low-speed compression damping are adjustable, as are spring preload and rear ride height.
Advanced Rider Technology
The GSX-R1000 is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a new Motion Track Brake System¹, Motion Track TCS² (Traction Control System) and Suzuki Drive Mode Selector.
