New Gixxer 1000 Now in In­dia

Bike India - - IGNITION -

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.
