SUZUKI GSX-R1000R 100th ANNIVERSARY EDITION
OWN THE ROADS AND THE RACETRACK
That’s why we’ve built you the most advanced, most exciting GSX-R in history, with an aggressive new look to match.
In 1985, Suzuki revolutionized the sportbike category with the introduction of the original GSX-R750, and then created another milestone in 2001 with the introduction of the GSX-R1000. Using the lithe chassis of the GSX-R750 and a 988cc inline four-cylinder engine design that Suzuki is renowned for, Superbike performance became available to riders everywhere.
At the pinnacle of the GSX-R family of ultra-high performance motorcycles, the 2021 GSX-R1000R’s versatile engine provides class-leading power that is delivered smoothly and controllably across a broad rpm range. Like the original GSX-R1000, the 2021’s compact chassis delivers nimble handling with excellent suspension feel and braking control, ready to conquer a racetrack or cruise a country road. Advanced electronic rider aids such as traction control, launch control, and a bi-directional quick shifter enhance the riding experience while the distinctive, aerodynamic GSX-R bodywork slices through the wind.
The GSX-R1000R is also equipped with Showa’s BFF and BFRC-Lite suspension components to create an unmatched combination of reliability and performance that can rule any track day. With a choice of Metallic Matte Paint schemes with subtle or bold graphics that rival the appearance of any other street bike, the GSX-R1000R stunning appearance creates as much envy as its performance.
*The Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
**Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
This special edition GSX-R1000R marks 100 years since the incorporation of Suzuki and comes complete with the same historically inspired livery as the 2020 world championship winning GSX-RR MotoGP racing machine.
The striking blue and silver livery pays homage to the early Grand Prix racing Suzukis and sets these modern GSX-R1000R apart from anything else out there, available in very limited numbers and will be the only one we see at Motorama Bisson.
This is the most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R ever built. It’s also the most compact, most aerodynamic and the best handling GSX-R1000R. With a supremely effective electronic engine management system, derived from MotoGP technology.
The GSX-R1000R comes standard with Brembo radial-mounted, monobloc front brake calipers, braided hoses and Nissin master cylinder.
It also comes equipped with the latest Showa BFF (Balance Free Front) forks and BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) lite shock, developed for racing. Both improve cornering traction by delivering smoother, more controlled travel and better reaction to surface imperfections.
AN UNBEATABLE PACKAGE
The Suzuki GSX-R series has defined sportbike performance for over 30 years, with more than a million sold worldwide. So the dedicated Suzuki engineers who have devoted their lives to the GSX-R take their responsibilities very seriously: every GSX-R must be very light and the best performing in its class, in an unbeatable package.
The most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R ever built. It’s also the most compact, most aerodynamic and the best handling GSX-R1000. With a supremely effective electronic engine management system, derived from MotoGP technology, it maximises drivability from the 202PS engine without being complicated to use.
It’s time to Own the Racetrack.
