New Suzi breaks cover in Italy
SUZUKI has unveiled the latest version of the legendary GSXR1000 sportsbike at the Eicma Motorcycle Show in Milan, Italy, last week.
Suzuki said the sixth generation 2016 racer is not only the lightest, most compact and cleanest-running GSX-R ever built but — thanks to its unique VVT-I technology — but also the most powerful and hard estac celerating in the proud 30year history of the GSX-R.
New from the ground up, most of the major parts and components of the redesigned GSX-R1000 have been refined, reworked and improved to keep it ahead of the pack and regain Suzuki’s King of Sportbikes crown.
The heart of the new R1 000 with its new variable valve timing makes it the most powerful GSX-R engine ever built, with increased top speed, optimised dimensions to improve cornering and handling, and increased performance and rideability with the help of MotoGP derived racing technology.
The new chassis is the most compact GSX-R1000 chassis ever produced, making it the lightest and most aerodynamic in history.
“We are extremely excited that the new GSX-R1000 will arrive on our shores before the end of next year,” says Stuart Baker, national sales manager for Suzuki Motorcycles.
In SA late next year — Suzuki’s new GSX-R1000.
