suzuki announces prices of new Gixxer 1000

Suzuki has announced pricing and availability of its hotly anticipated GSX-R1000R, with the all-new machine coming with an RRP of £16,099.

Boasting a completely new engine that uses technology taken directly from the firm’s GSX-RR MotoGP racer – including a variable-valve-timing system (SR-VVT) that has never before been seen on a production sportsbike – the new GSX-R1000R makes class-leading power and torque, producing 202hp at 13,200rpm and 117.6Nm of torque at 10,800rpm.

Developed by the hand of three-time British Superbike champion John Reynolds, the bike also features an inertial measurement unit-controlled 10-mode traction control system and cornering ABS, as well as launch control and a bi-directional quickshifter and auto-blipper. Suspension comes in the form of Showa’s race-proven Balance Free front forks and rear shock.

Suzuki has also confirmed pricing for its GSX-R1000, which gets the same 202hp-producing powerplant and all-new frame and swingarm. Launching with an RRP of £13,249, the GSX-R1000 gets the same 10-mode traction control system and an ABS system that controls rear wheel lift under heavy braking. Suspension is also provided by Showa, with Big Piston front forks replacing the Balance Free items on the GSX-R1000R.
