OWN THE RACETRACK
It has been three decades and more than a million sold since the GSX-R line was born. A decade and a half since the first GSX-R1000 (K1) changed the open sportsbike class forever.
The latest-generation GSX-R1000 embodies the life work and professional ambition of Suzuki engineers who are extremely passionate about the GSX-R brand and its place in motorcycle history.
Put simply -this is the most powerful, hardest-accelerating, best-handling, cleanest-running production GSX-R ever built.
The most powerful GSX-R ever
The latest-generation 999.8cm3 in-line four cylinder, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine, is the most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R engine ever built. Producing 148.6kW (202ps) @13,200rpm with 117.6Nm of torque @10,800rpm. The design target was simple "Increase top end power without sacrificing low and mid range output" to achieve this Suzuki engineers had to employ advanced MotoGP derived technologies known as the Broad Power System.
Broad Power System
The Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT), Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A) and Suzuki Top Feed Injector (S-TFI) systems combine to make the Broad Power System, the engineering goal was to increase high-rpm performance without reducing low and mid-range performance. The results of this system is strong, linear power and enhanced acceleration throughout the rpm range.
Suzuki Racing VVT
The centrifugally operated system is built into the intake cam sprocket and an adjacent guide plate, using 12 steel balls and slanted grooves to rotate the sprocket and retard the intake valve timing at a pre-set rpm,boosting high-rpm power.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector
Using the S-DMS switch on the left handlebar, the rider can select three different mapping and engine power delivery settings designed to match power delivery to various ambient conditions, such as riding on different racetracks, or on tight twisty roads, or in urban settings, or in traffic, or on straight and open highways.
Motion Track Brake System
The Motion Track Brake System works with the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) to constantly monitor vehicle movement in 6-directions along 3-axes, Pitch, Roll and Yaw. Using IMU input, the system reduces rear-wheel lift during very hard braking on the racetrack. On the premium R-model the system also optimises brake pressure when the motorcycle is leaning during cornering.
Brembo 320mm Hybrid Discs
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.
Motion Track TCS
The rider can chose from 10 levels of Motion Track TCS intervention: Mode 1 is the minimum, Mode 10 is the maximum intervention level. Modes 1-4 are designed for racetrack riding; Modes 5-8 are designed for street riding; and Modes 9-10 are designed for slippery road conditions.
Bi-Directional Quick Shift System
A racing-type bi-directional quick shift system, allows the rider to up-shift and downshift without using the clutch or the throttle.
Lighter Aluminium Frame
Suzuki engineers designed a new twin-spar aluminium perimeter frame that's 20mm narrower at the widest point between the spars and weighs 10% less than previous.
