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 NEWCHASSIS
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.
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.
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.
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.
The GSX-R1000 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-R1000 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.
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.
