suzuki GSX R1000R

An Unbeatable Package

The Suzuki GSX-R series has defined sportbike performance for over 30 years, with more than a million sold worldwide. So the dedicated Suzuki engineers who have devoted their lives to the GSX-R take their responsibilities very seriously: every GSX-R must be very light and the best performing in its class, in an unbeatable package.

GSX-R Power

The most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R ever built. It’s also the most compact, most aerodynamic and the best handling GSX-R1000. 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.

R Extras

There are two versions of the new GSX-R1000 available. The GSX-R1000R comes fitted with Lean angle sensitive ABS¹, Balance Free suspension, Bi-Directional quick shift, launch control, LED position lights, Negative instrument display, lightweight upper yoke and lightweight battery.

The Perfect Balance

Equipped with the latest Showa BFF (Balance Free Front) forks and BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) lite shock, developed for racing. Both improve cornering traction by delivering smoother, more controlled travel and better reaction to surface imperfections.    

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.

New Brembo Discs and Calipers

New Brembo stainless steel brake discs are 10 mm larger in diameter, measuring 320 mm. Each disc features a new hybrid mounting system using a 50/50 combination of 5 conventional spring loaded floating pin mounts and 5 Brembo T-drive floating mounts. The GSX-R1000’s Brembo radial-mount, monobloc front brake calipers each have four 32 mm pistons and work with a radial-pump, 19 mm master cylinder. The rear brake system uses a single-piston caliper and a 220 mm disc.                             

Advanced Rider Technology

The GSX-R1000R is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a new Motion Track Brake System¹, Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System²), Suzuki Drive Mode Selector, Launch Control and a Bi-Directional Quick Shift System. 

Aerodynamic Bodywork

The GSX-R1000R has sleeker and more aerodynamic bodywork designed to improve handling and top speed on the racetrack. The bodywork has a more connected flow line from the fairing nose to the tail section. It’s lighter, producing less moment inertia and less leverage on the centre of gravity. And it directs the a flow to improve engine and brake cooling while also increasing down force, rider wind protection, and engine efficiency.

LED Lighting Technology

The Suzuki GSX-R1000R features a LED headlight that is more compact than a halogen headlight, yet produces excellent lighting. Installed in the nose of the fairing, the LED headlight is narrower and shorter, contributing to the new GSX-R’s aerodynamics.

Advanced Instrumentation

Featuring full LCD instrumentation. The dash is brighter and easier to read, and incorporates S-DMS mode and Motion Track TCS level indicators as well as a fuel gauge and readouts showing instantaneous or average fuel consumption, ambient temperature, freeze indicator and service reminders.
