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-R1000RA will Own The Racetrack.
Run. Turn. Stop.
Throughout 30 years of GSX-R development, Suzuki engineers have focused on the fundamentals that make a great sportbike. Those fundamentals can be distilled down into three simple, yet powerful words: Run. Turn. Stop. The newest GSX-R1000RA is built using the latest state-of-the-art technology to embody those fundamentals into the powerful combination of Acceleration, Cornering and Braking.
MOTION TRACK TCS
Suzuki’s advanced Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System) allows the rider to select 10 different levels of traction control intervention, depending upon road or racetrack conditions as well as personal preference and experience level. The power mode and level of TCS intervention can be changed while riding, as long as the throttle is closed.
The GSX-R1000R model’s launch control system makes it easier for a racer to get a good start in closed-course competition by automatically limiting engine rpm and optimizing torque delivery while the rider holds the throttle twist grip wide open and concentrates on feeding in the clutch lever.
ALL-NEW CHASSIS DESIGN
The new chassis is more compact and lighter, improving response and agility. It is designed to increase the rider’s confidence in RUN, TURN, STOP performance on the racetrack.
Thanks to the high-illumination LED, the new GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R headlight is much more compact than the current GSX-R1000 model’s headlight.
The 2017 GSX-R1000 is fitted with MotoGP-inspired, more aerodynamic bodywork designed to contribute to better overall racetrack performance by increasing handling and top speed on the racetrack.
MOTOGP DESIGNED ENGINE
To defeat the competition, increasing top-end power was an essential target. However, the GSX-R line has always been known for making broad power across the rev range, combining low-end and mid-range torque with an exciting top-end rush. The new GSX-R1000 engine is designed to produce the most top-end power without sacrificing low-end and mid-range power and torque. To achieve this target, technology developed in MotoGP racing has been used in the engine design.
Exploiting the higher engine speed and increasing the high-rpm power without affecting lower and mid-rpm power presented a challenge. The valve timing typically needed for higher peak power also reduces mid-range and lower-rpm power, and vice versa. The answer came from the proprietary, proven Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT) System developed for Moto GP racing. Unlike complicated variable valve timing systems used by other manufactures, the SR-VVT is simpler, more compact, lighter and more positive.
The new GSX-R1000’s 4-into-2-into-1 thin-wall Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (S-AES) is also designed to increase high-rpm horsepower without reducing mid-range and lower-rpm power and torque.
From the beginning, the GSX-R has been known for its racetrack potential. The first GSX-R was introduced as being Born On The Circuit, and ready to Return To The Circuit. Inspired by factory racebikes, the original GSX-R immediately proved itself racetrack capable. The new GSX-R1000 continues that tradition, whether set up in relatively stock form for track-day fun or modified for full-on races.
