THIS WEEK: 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000R – VOTE TODAY

2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000



The King of Sportbikes is back, bow to the King…

It has been three decades, with more than a million editions sold, since
the GSX-R line was born. And a decade and a half has elapsed since the first
GSX-R1000 transformed the open sportbike class forever. Now, the 2017 GSX-R1000R
is redefining what it means to be The King of Sportbikes.

This motorcycle’s chassis forms the lightest, the most compact, the
most aerodynamic and the best-handling GSX-R1000 ever. Cradled in the new
aluminum frame is an all-new engine that uses an exclusive Variable Valve
Timing and Ride-by-Wire throttle bodies for a wide spread of power while delivering
smooth and precise throttle response

Using an Inertial Measuring Unit (IMU) the GSX-R1000R’s advanced electronics
package includes selectable performance modes so the motorcycle enhances and
fine tunes rider inputs. The six-axis IMU lets the GSX-R1000R recognize its
position on the street or race track to help the rider achieve an extraordinary
level of riding performance.

Up front, new style BREMBO T-drive brake rotors grasped by Monobloc calipers
connected to the exclusive Suzuki Motion Track Anti-lock Brake system provides
strong, controlled braking. The precise and smooth SHOWA Balance Free suspension
keeps the sticky Bridgestone RS10 tires in touch with the road. All of this
forward-looking motorcycle technology is covered in all-new, wind tunnel-developed
bodywork that’s uniquely GSX-R.


This is your invitation to Own The Racetrack.

*The Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle
control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the
rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the
front wheel from losing grip.

*The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening
stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching

Key Features

All new 999.8cc liquid-cooled DOHC inline-four cylinder engine produces
exceptionally high top-end power without sacrificing low to mid-range power
thanks to a Variable Valve Timing (VVT) system, Ride-by-Wire Throttle Bodies
and more.

Advanced electronics such as an Inertia Measurement Unit (IMU), S-DMS adjustable
power output, and Suzuki traction control, plus other performance features,
increase racetrack and street performance.

New design, twin-spar type aluminum frame is 10% lighter and more compact,
with optimized rigidity for nimble handling and a high level of grip when
