New Gixxer 1000 Now in India
SUZUKI HAVE FINALLY LAUNCHED THE updated 2017 GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R in the Indian market, priced at Rs 19 lakh and Rs 22 lakh (ex-Delhi) respectively.
Suzuki have been slower than the competition to include the latest electronic wizardry in their bikes, but the 2017 GSX-R1000 now comes with a full suite of rider assists to be abreast of the times.
The 2017 ‘Gixxer’ is an all-new bike and comes with a smaller, lighter and more powerful 999-cc four-cylinder engine which boasts of Suzuki’s race-derived Variable Valve Timing System for more usable power through the rev range. The chassis becomes narrower and lighter as well to improve handling, and the bike gets fully adjustable suspension at both ends. Electronics in the standard GSXR-1000 include a six-direction Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) working in conjunction with a 10-level traction control system, ABS, LED lights all around full LCD instrumentation. The GSX-R1000R gets all this as well as launch control, a quickshifter with auto-blipper for downshifts, Showa Balance Free suspension as well as cornering ABS.
