The 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 will launch soon and when it does, we will have it right here in this spot. The GSX-R1000 is due for a major update and we expect a new updated model to push the boundries of horsepower, low weight, areodynamics and exceptional handling characteristics. There might even be a traction control type option simular to the brand new 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1.
