GSX-R1000 – 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.

Like the original GSX-R1000, the 2022’s compact, light, and strong chassis deliver 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* and a bi-directional quick shifter enhance the riding experience while the distinctive, aerodynamic GSX-R bodywork slices through the wind.

Equipped with Showa’s Big-piston Fork plus Brembo T-drive rotors and Monobloc brake calipers the GSX-R1000 help deliver the sort of performance and confidence your favorite canyon road ride or local track day demand. A new Metallic Matte Black No. 2 and Glass Matte Mechanical Gray paint scheme with contrasting black graphics joins the popular monochromatic Metallic Matte Black No. 2 body treatment delivering an aggressive look seen on a spy plane.
