The most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R ever built. It’s also the most compact, most aerodynamic and the best handling GSX-R1000. With a supremely effective electronic engine management system, derived from MotoGP technology, it maximises drivability from the 202PS engine without being complicated to use. It’s time to Own the Racetrack.
MOTOGP DESIGNED ENGINE
The new engine revs higher and makes more peak horsepower, while maintaining excellent low-to-mid-range power and drive. It is a compact and lightweight inline four, DOHC with chain cam drive and four titanium valves per cylinder set at narrow angles, with a more over-square bore/stroke ratio, a higher redline and a higher compression ratio. The Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT), Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A), and Suzuki Top Feed Injector (S-TFI) systems combine to make the Broad Power System, increasing high-rpm performance without reducing low and mid-range performance. The result is strong, linear power and enhanced acceleration throughout the rpm range.
The Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT), developed in MotoGP competition on the GSX-RR is unlike complicated systems used by other manufacturers, the SR-VVT system is simpler, more compact, and lighter. The system is built into the intake cam sprocket and an adjacent guide plate, using 12 steel balls positioned between slanted radial grooves in the intake cam sprocket and straight radial grooves in the guide plate attached directly to the camshaft. As centrifugal force moves the balls outward at high rpm, the offset grooves align, rotating the position of the cam sprocket on the camshaft and retarding intake cam timing, adding significantly to high-rpm power. The beauty of the SR-VVT system is in its compact simplicity, light weight, reliability and seamless operation.
The GSX-R1000R’s 4-into-2-into-1 thin-wall stainless-steel Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (S-AES) is designed to increase high-rpm horsepower without reducing mid-range and lower-rpm power. GSX-R1000 benefits from the addition of new Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A) butterfly valves. A header balance tube connects the head pipes for cylinders #1 and #4, and another header balance tube connects the head pipes for cylinders #2 and #3, a design feature that normally increases high-rpm power at the expense of mid-range and lower-rpm power. Suzuki engineers added a servo-operated SET-A butterfly valve in each header balance tube, which remains closed to enhance mid-range and low-rpm power, then opens at high rpm to add significant top-end power.
Straight from the showroom the limited edition GSX-R1000R Buildbase comes with a host of genuine accessories to take this GSX-R to the next level. As well as the stunning Buildbase Suzuki livery the bike is fitted with: smoked double bubble windscreen, upgraded brake & clutch levers, brake & clutch lever protectors, clutch & alternator cover protectors, tank pad, fuel cap trim, clear paint protection sticker kits, front & rear axle slider sets, chain adjuster set and seat tail cover. Also included are a paddock stand, garage mat, indoor bike cover and Ogio trolley bag.
This amazing GSX-R1000R will leave the showroom ready to own the roads, but it also comes complete with a Track Kit supplied in the Suzuki Ogio trolley bag that you can have fitted to own the race track too. These items are for track use only and comprise a Yoshimura titanium finish R-11sq slip on silencer, silencer hanger bracket to replace the pillion foot rests and mirror hole caps to replace the mirrors.
There are two versions of the new GSX-R1000 available. The GSX-R1000R comes fitted with Lean angle sensitive ABS, Balance Free suspension, Bi-Directional quick shift, launch control, LED position lights, Negative instrument display and lightweight upper yoke.
THE PERFECT BALANCE
Equipped with the latest Showa BFF (Balance Free Front) forks and BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) lite shock, developed for racing. Both improve cornering traction by delivering smoother, more controlled travel and better reaction to surface imperfections.
AN ALL NEW CHASSIS
The new chassis is more compact and narrower. The new bolt-on rear subframe is now made of square aluminium tubing, reducing weight by 38%. A new aluminium swingarm is braced on both sides instead of on one, to improve weight and rigidity balance.
NEW BREMBO DISCS AND CALIPERS
New Brembo stainless steel brake discs are 10 mm larger in diameter, measuring 320 mm. Each disc features a new hybrid mounting system using a 50/50 combination of 5 conventional spring loaded floating pin mounts and 5 Brembo T-drive floating mounts. The GSX-R1000’s Brembo radial-mount, monobloc front brake calipers each have four 32 mm pistons and work with a radial-pump, 19 mm master cylinder. The rear brake system uses a single-piston caliper and a 220 mm disc.
ADVANCED RIDER TECHNOLOGY
The GSX-R1000R is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a new Motion Track Brake System¹, Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System²), Suzuki Drive Mode Selector, Launch Control and a Bi-Directional Quick Shift System.
BI-DIRECTIONAL QUICK SHIFT SYSTEM
This system allows the rider to upshift and downshift without using the clutch or the throttle. The quick shift system allows the rider to upshift smoothly and quickly at full throttle, without closing the throttle. The system automatically interrupts power delivery just long enough (between 50 and 75 milliseconds, depending upon the sensitivity adjustment) to unload the transmission gear dogs and allow a clean upshift, producing smoother, almost uninterrupted acceleration. For quicker and smoother downshifts without manually blipping the throttle twist grip or using the clutch, the system automatically opens the throttle valves just enough to increase rpm and match engine speed to the next-lower gear ratio.
The launch control system makes it easier for a racer to get a good start in competition by automatically limiting engine rpm and optimising torque delivery while the rider holds the throttle twist grip wide open and concentrates on feeding in the clutch lever. Once launch control is selected using a switch on the right handlebar, the system engages special maps controlling throttle valve opening and ignition timing. The system monitors throttle twist grip position, throttle valve position, engine rpm, gear position, front wheel speed, and rear wheel speed. At the moment of launch, the system is set to hold the engine at ideal rpm for an effective launch.
Motion Track Brake System
This system works with the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit). The IMU constantly monitors vehicle movement in 6-directions along 3-axes, Pitch, Roll and Yaw. Using IMU input, the Motion Track Brake System¹ reduces rear wheel lift during very hard braking² on the racetrack, and is especially effective on downhill sections of track. On the GSX-R1000R the system also optimises brake pressure when the motorcycle is leaning.
Motion Track TCS Traction Control System
Suzuki’s advanced Motion Track TCS allows the rider to select 10 different levels of traction control intervention, depending upon road or racetrack conditions as well as personal preference and experience. The Motion Track TCS continuously monitors front and rear wheel speed, throttle position, crankshaft position, gear position, and motorcycle motion, and quickly reduces engine power output when a loss of traction is detected or predicted.
The GSX-R1000R has sleeker and more aerodynamic bodywork designed to improve handling and top speed on the racetrack. The bodywork has a more connected flow line from the fairing nose to the tail section. It’s lighter, producing less moment inertia and less leverage on the centre of gravity. And it directs the a flow to improve engine and brake cooling while also increasing down force, rider wind protection, and engine efficiency.
LED LIGHTING TECHNOLOGY
The Suzuki GSX-R1000R features a LED headlight that is more compact than a halogen headlight, yet produces excellent lighting. Installed in the nose of the fairing, the LED headlight is narrower and shorter, contributing to the new GSX-R’s aerodynamics.
Featuring full LCD instrumentation. The dash is brighter and easier to read, and incorporates S-DMS mode and Motion Track TCS level indicators as well as a fuel gauge and readouts showing instantaneous or average fuel consumption, ambient temperature, freeze indicator and service reminders.
