- 2001 Suzuki TL 1000 R

If there was ever a family of motorcycles that "owned the racetrack" the GSX-R line is it. Not surprising considering the thousands of GSX-R motorcycles sold worldwide since the model's inception, and their popularity at all levels of roadracing. Now, the new generation of GSX-R motorcycles is complete with a new 600 supersport contender and an open-class machine with the best power-to-weight ratio in its class. Rounding out the supersport line is the TL1000R - a V-twin-powered machine with outstanding performance on the street or the track.

 

THE SUZUKI TL1000R: V-TWIN SUPERBIKE

The TL1000R combines all the power and performance of a traditional large-displacement V-twin, but takes it a step further with the latest performance technology. Technology that makes for a tractable street machine plus engine and chassis adjustability needed for the race track.

Suzuki engineers based the engine around the awesome TL1000S 90o V-twin, power plant and tuned it for even more power and torque. Features such as forged pistons, lightweight conrods, twin radiators, high-capacity airbox and exhaust system, larger clutch, twin injector-per- throttle body fuel injection system and many other refinements for increased performance and durability.

The TL1000R has an equally race-ready chassis centering around a short wheelbase aluminum spar-type frame. The frame is combined with a bridge-type swingarm, fully adjustable inverted forks, and Suzuki's unique rotary damper rear suspension for quick, precise handling. Superior braking performance is provided by 320mm front disc brakes with 6-piston calipers and wide radial tires. The whole package is wrapped in an eye-catching aerodynamic fairing. To a V-twin lover, the Suzuki TL1000R is the ultimate in V-twin performance.
