Own The Racetrack
It is a machine designed to turn a simple expression of what really matters –Run, Turn, Stop –into the powerful combination of acceleration, cornering, and braking that makes this the most awesome GSX-R ever produced.
Offered with the certain knowledge that–if you’re ready–the new GSX-R1000 will Own The Racetrack.
The design team quickly settled on basic engine design goals. The new engine would rev higher and make more peak horsepower, while maintaining excellent low-to-mid-range power and drive. It would be a compact and lightweight Inline Four, DOHC with chain cam drive and four titanium valves per cylinder set at narrow angles, with a more over-square bore/stroke ratio, a higher redline and a higher compression ratio.
IMU sensor to track motorcycle motion
The new GSX-R1000’s advanced electronic management system incorporates feedback from a Continental Inertial Measurement Unit(IMU) which tracks the motion and position of the motorcycle in 6-directions, along 3-axis, Pitch, Roll and Yaw.
The new GSX-R1000’s chassis is more compact and narrower than the previous model’s chassis. Suzuki engineers designed a new twin-spar aluminium perimeter frame that’s 20 mm narrower at the widest point between the spars and weighs 10% less.
The 2017 GSX-R1000 has MotoGP-inspired, sleeker and more aerodynamic bodywork designed to improve handling and top speed on the racetrack.
