Both new GSX-R1000S will have the same new Motogp-de­rived Vari­able Valve Tim­ing ( VVT) mo­tor, which is more pow­er­ful, shorter and nar­rower than the cur­rent bike’s. They have a new chas­sis, styling, ride-by-wire, Imu-con­trolled 10-stage trac­tion con­trol, LCD dash, rid­ing modes and en­gine brak­ing con­trol sys­tems.

The R model will have up­rated Showa Bal­ance Free forks and rear shock, a light­weight top yoke, quick­shifter, au­to­blip­per, launch con­trol and a light­weight bat­tery.

No prices have yet been re­vealed but it is thought the stan­dard ver­sion will come in at around £12,000 while the R ver­sion is ex­pected to be around £13,500.
