Michael Neeves Se­nior Road Tester

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

See­ing the new GSX-R1000 in the flesh and in ac­tion on the track was a real treat. It’s smaller, lighter, more com­pact and clev­erer than the cur­rent model and Tay­lor’s point about the en­gine’s ex­tra power makes a su­per­bike show­down a must. Test rider John Reynolds reck­ons that apart from the new Blade, which he hasn’t rid­den, the GSX-R1000 is the fastest of all the 1000s – some feat given the strato­spheric level road­go­ing su­per­bikes are at now.
