Performance, Innovation, Domination
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.
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 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 new engine revs higher and makes more peak horsepower, while maintaining excellent low-to-mid-range power and drive. It is a compact and lightweight inline four, DOHC with chain cam drive and four titanium valves per cylinder set at narrow angles.
The Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT), developed in MotoGP competition on the GSX-RR is unlike complicated systems used by other manufacturers, the SR-VVT system is simpler, more compact, and lighter. The system is built into the intake cam sprocket.
The GSX-R1000's 4-into-2-into-1 thin-wall stainless-steel Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (S-AES) is also designed to increase high-rpm horsepower without reducing mid-range and lower-rpm power. GSX-R1000 benefits from the addition of a new Exhaust.
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 weather conditions or riding on different racetracks.
