In 1985, Suzuki revolutionized the sportbike category with the introduction of the original GSX-R750, and then created another milestone in 2001 with the introduction of the GSX-R1000. Using the lithe chassis of the GSX-R750 and a 988cc inline four-cylinder engine design that Suzuki is renowned for, Superbike performance became available to riders everywhere.
A proud member of the GSX-R family of ultra-high performance motorcycles, the 2021 GSX-R1000’s versatile engine provides class-leading power that is delivered smoothly and controllably across a broad rpm range. Like the original GSX-R1000, the 2021’s compact chassis delivers nimble handling with excellent suspension feel and braking control, ready to conquer a racetrack or cruise a country road. Advanced electronic rider aids such as traction control and a bi-directional quick shifter enhance the riding experience while the distinctive, aerodynamic GSX-R bodywork slices through the wind.
Equipped with Showa’s Big-piston Fork plus Brembo T-drive rotors and Monobloc brake calipers the GSX-R1000 is ready for a ride through the twisties on the street or though chicanes on a track day. A new Metallic Matte Paint scheme with subtle black graphics creates a look usually reserved for a spy plane. Mission accepted; settle into the cockpit for takeoff.
