2010 Suzuki GSX-R1000

Own the racetrack.

Suzuki GSX-R1000 is ready to own the racetrack or deliver an exhilarating ride on the road.

The latest GSX-R1000 features significant upgrades across the board, including a completely re-designed engine and chassis, with major suspension, brake and bodywork developments.

The 999cc, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC engine, featuring the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel-injection system, is lighter and shorter and delivers improved performance and throttle response throughout the entire rpm range, while also reducing emissions.

Developed on the racetrack, the new Suzuki is fitted with two large-volume, MotoGP-inspired titanium mufflers and a large and efficient trapezoidal-shaped radiator to reduce drag.

With a new layout, ratios in the six-speed transmission have been carefully selected for optimum racetrack performance, while the GSX-R1000 is also fitted with a revised back-torque-limiting clutch offering improved lever feel and feedback.

The compact engine enabled engineers to create an all-new, more compact chassis, with a new twin-spar cradle frame, 10mm-shorter wheelbase and 33mm-longer swingarm, improving handling and acceleration on the racetrack.

Co-developed by Suzuki and Showa engineers and proven in the gruelling Suzuka 8 Hour, the GSX-R1000 features a revolutionary Big Piston Frontfork (BPF) front suspension system.

If it sounds good on paper, the GSX-R1000 feels even better on the road or track.

Ride it yourself and experience the sheer performance of the world’s most successful open-class racing machine.

 

Key Features:

Engine – 999cc GSX-R1000 engine is a clean sheet design built to maximize combustion efficiency with more torque and power across the rpm range and enhanced throttle response and reduced exhaust emissions.

Fuel injection System – A powerful microprocessor in the ECM runs the advanced engine management system, starting with the latest versions of the SDTV downdraft double-barrel fuel injection system first introduced on the GSX-R1000.

Features and Benefits:

Engine Features

999cc GSX-R1000 engine is a clean sheet design built to maximize combustion efficiency with more torque and power across the rpm range and enhanced throttle response and reduced exhaust emissions.

As a result the distance between the crankshaft and the transmission output shaft has been reduced by 59.6mm making the engine shorter front to rear.

The integrated clutch and starter motor cover is about 200 grams lighter than the two individual covers previously used.

An efficient oil cooler also has a trapezoidal shape instead of the more conventional rectangular shape, allowing the lower fairing to be narrower for improved aerodynamics.

A one piece die cast aluminum alloy rear subframe and tailsection support is lighter and seat height is unchanged at 810mm.

A powerful microprocessor in the ECM runs the advanced engine management system, starting with the latest versions of the SDTV downdraft double-barrel fuel injection system first introduced on the GSX-R1000.

A Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) servo controlled butterfly valve built into the mid pipe helps maximize torque throughout the RPM range.

Each throttle body feeds two cylinders and each throttle body barrel carries two ultra-fine-atomization, 12 hole injectors. Each cylinders primary injector is aimed at a steep 30 degree angle down the intake port to improve fuel atomization and operates under all conditions.

An oversquare bore and stroke of 74.5mm x 57.3mm (from 73.4mm x 59.0mm) gives the engine better overall tuning potential, specifically increased performance at high rpm

Repositioning the transmission shafts also allowed the crankcase assembly to be simplified , now using two bolted-together (upper and lower) sections instead of three, eliminating 16 screws and helping to further reduce weight by about 670 grams.

Reshaped combustion chamber and aggressive cam profiles increases the compression ratio to 12.8:1 over previous GSX-R1000 models.

Spark plugs with finer, Iridium-alloy electrodes produce a stronger spark for better combustion

SRAD airbox design has been optimized for efficient air flow enabling maximum engine power at the mid to high RPM.

Suzuki engineers were also able to increase low-range and mid-range performance and broaden the torque curve by reshaping the combustion chamber, increasing the compression ratio to 12.8:1 (from 12.5:1) and developing new cam profiles for the latest version GSX-R.

The back torque limiting clutch incorporates the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) for light clutch pull and optimum clutch performance.

The close ratio six speed transmission’s input and output shafts are triangulated with the crankshaft. The crankshaft is positioned more forward in the cases relative to the cylinder centerline, the transmission input shaft has been moved upwards and the transmission output shaft has been moved forward from the previous version GSX-R1000.

The clutch is directly operated by a cable instead of a hydraulic system, improving feel and feedback to the rider as well as reducing weight

The computer controlled Suzuki PAIR system injects fresh air from the airbox into the exhaust ports further reducing emissions by igniting unburned hydrocarbons.

The engine managements Idle Speed Control (ISC) improves cold starting, reduces cold start emissions and stabilizes engine idle under various conditions by automatically regulating the volume of fresh air fed into the throttle body circuits, based on coolant temperature.

The latest version of the Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) incorporates staggered length titanium head pipes, a collector, a short mid pipe and a stainless steel under engine chamber that leads to two Moto GP inspired titanium mufflers.

The engine is shorter front to rear allowing engineers to use a shorter wheelbase AND a longer swingarm for improved racetrack performance

The latest GSX-R1000 features an intake camshaft which is shorter and lighter and the cam angle sensor has been relocated from the left end of the intake cam to the center of the exhaust cam. This allows the cylinder head to be reshaped for reduced weight

The radiator and oil cooler allow for the use of narrower bodywork for reduced drag.

The combustion chamber shape accommodates larger intake and exhaust valves. Intake valve size is 31mm and exhaust valve size is 25mm.

The SDTV system uses two butterfly valves in each throttle body barrel, the primary valve controlled by the rider via the twist grip and the secondary valve controlled by the ECM.

The single counter balancer shaft is now smaller measuring 20mm in bearing diameter instead of 23mm for reduced mechanical losses

The steel alloy used to produce the single valve spring for each valve has been revised along with camshaft profiles.

The under engine chamber carries a catalyzer to help reduce hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide emissions.

To help maintain intake efficiency and power output at high rpm the downdraft intake manifolds are now 138mm from 148mm on the previous GSX-R1000.

Unique Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system allow the rider to select one of three fuel injection and ignition system maps, adjusting power delivery to suit personal preference.

Ventilation holes positioned underneath the bottom of the piston stroke in each cylinder bore allow air trapped underneath each descending piston to quickly escape to adjacent cylinders.

 

Chassis Features

The GSX-R1000 front brake system matches fully floating 310mm drilled discs with radial mount race proven mono-block forged aluminum alloy front brake calipers

The rear disc brake works with a single piston caliper mounted above the swingarm.

A programmable engine RPM indicator system incorporates four LED’s.

A speedometer display mode switch is mounted on the right handlebar control module and can be used to trigger the lap time counter.

The compact twin spar frame welded together using five cast aluminum alloy sections including a steering head section, two main-spar/swingarm pivot plate sections and cross braces above and below the swingarm.

Each BPF fork leg is also 720 grams lighter than the conventional fork tube it replaces.

Electronically controlled steering damper uses the ECM to monitor motorcycle speed and adjust damping force as needed.

Footpegs remain three way adjustable in 14mm in a horizontal and vertical range.

The overall dimensions allow the use of a swingarm that is 33mm longer, measuring 577mm from the center of the pivot shaft to the center of the rear axle in the standard position while still reducing the wheelbase by 10mm to 1405mm.

Front brake calipers are more rigid despite each being 205 grams lighter than conventional bolt together calipers, reducing flex and improving feedback.

Showa BPF (Big Piston Front) 43mm fork design eliminates the internal cartridge assembly inserted into each fork leg and instead uses a single 39.6mm upper piston riding against the inside wall of the inner fork tube.

Cast aluminum alloy wheels feature a more aggressive design and are also lighter.

SRAD intakes are larger and positioned closer to the centerline of the fairing nose, where air pressure is the highest.

The instrument cluster is centered around an analog tachometer framed by an elegant silver ring with an adjacent digital LCD speedometer.

The BPF design relocates the fork springs to the bottom of each fork leg, where they are completely submerged in oil, reducing fork oil foaming and contributing to more stable damping.

The larger piston and shims used in the BPF forks produce more effective valving, with more controlled compression delivering better feedback to the rider.

The multi-reflector headlight incorporates a bold look with vertically stacked high and low beam halogen bulbs centered between position lights on each side.

The LED combination taillight and brake light is built into the rear of the tailsection, featuring a red, mirror lens, covering LED’s.

The rear turn signals feature clear lenses over amber bulbs and the lenses are integrated into and wrap around the outside edges of the seat cowl.

The aluminum alloy swingarm is constructed using just three castings and is arched to make room for the dual titanium mufflers to be tucked in tightly on each side.

The compact GSX-R1000 engine allowed the design team to shorten up the mainframe reducing the distance between the steering head and the swingarm pivot while also reshaping the main spars to precisely fit the contours of the latest engine.

The sculpted fuel tank is lighter while retaining 17.5 liters of capacity.

The wind tunnel tested upper fairing is wider, providing better wind protection while also reducing turbulence and drag.

The radial pump front brake master cylinder measures 17mm for improved rider feedback and feel.

The rebound and compression valving adjustment screws are indented into the fork caps. Spring preload is adjusted at the bottom of the fork leg assembly.

The sharply creased fairing sides feature a layered look that improves the flow of cooling air through the radiator and away from the rider.

The Showa rear shock works through an aluminum alloy linkage mounted on the swingarm, with an extruded aluminum alloy link rods connected to the frame. The rear shock absorber is adjustable for rebound, high and low speed compression and spring preload
