Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
Suzuki revolutionized the sportbike category with the introduction of the original GSX-R750 in 1985, 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, liter-class Superbike performance became available to riders everywhere.
At the pinnacle of the GSX-R family of ultra-high-performance motorcycles, the 2023 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 2023’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.
Features may include:
- Key Features
Available in Pearl Brilliant White and Metallic Matte Stellar Blue, or Metallic Matte Black No. 2 and Glass Sparkle Black paint schemes.
- Engine Features
The compact, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999.8cc, inline-four-cylinder engine is designed with a high level of top-end performance plus strong low- to mid-range power.
The crankshaft retains Suzuki’s Even Firing Order Engine legacy. Uneven firing order engines used in other motorcycles vibrate more, while the GSX-R1000R makes good, smooth, and reliable power at all engine speeds while emitting a screamer exhaust note.
- Transmission Features
The Suzuki Bi-Directional Quick Shift System permits clutchless upshifts and downshifts for faster lap-times during competition and exceptional rider convenience on the street.
- Advanced Electronics Features
Lightning-fast, 32-bit dual processor Engine Control Module (ECM) blends Suzuki’s vast street-going EFI knowledge with the intelligence from Suzuki’s race-winning MotoGP program. GSX-R1000R riders will get sportbike performance without peer while simultaneously receiving polished street manners.
- Chassis Features
Using lessons learning from Suzuki MotoGP chassis development, the engine angle of the GSX-R1000R was rotated backward six degrees as compared to the prior-generation GSX-R1000. This had the joint effect of reducing the distance of the fork to the center of the chassis by 20 mm and increasing the swingarm length by 40 mm. This increases chassis stability and improves aerodynamics.
The aluminum twin-spar-style frame was designed using FEM analysis technology to place strength in the proper places; the frame is also 10 percent lighter than the prior-generation GSX-R1000. The spars of the frame are set 20 mm closer to help improve aerodynamics and looks and to bring more comfort to the rider.
- Electrical Features
Controller Area Network wire harness (CAN Bus) allows for fast and precise communications between all of the GSX-R1000R’s electronic systems. With a CAN Bus system, riders will experience swift and trouble-free electronic system operation while the size and complexity of the wiring is simplified.
The LCD multifunction instrument panel has a black background with white digits and has an adjustable intensity, white color backlight for great nighttime visibility. The LCD main panel is flanked by LED indicators that include the turn signals, high beam, traction control, and shift light, plus coolant temperature and oil pressure alerts.
- Additional Features
A variety of Genuine Suzuki Accessories are available, plus a large selection of GSX-R logo apparel.
