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.
