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 2022 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 2022’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 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. Up front, fed by stainless steel brake lines, radially mounted Brembo Monobloc brake calipers grasp a pair of 320mm Brembo T-drive floating brake rotors for strong stopping power with outstanding response and feel.
With a stunning appearance creates as much envy as its performance, riders can choose a GSX-R1000R with a new Metallic Matte Black and Glass Matte Mechanical Gray paint scheme or a Metallic Matte Black paint scheme. Both with bold, contrasting graphics that rival the appearance of any other street bike.
The GSX-R1000R continues its reign as the best liter-class supersport with an unmatched combination of reliability, durability, usability, and overall performance with excellent racing potential in a striking package that respects the GSX-R legacy.
