This is most powerful GSX-R ever!
It has been three decades and more than a million sold since the GSX-R line was born. A decade and a half since the first GSX-R1000 (K1) changed the open sportsbike class forever.
The all-new, 999.8cm3 in-line 4-cylinder, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine, is the most powerful, hardest accelerating, cleanest running GSX-R engine ever built. Producing 202ps @13,200rpm with 117.6Nm of torque @10,800rpm, the new engine surpasses the competition. The design target was simple “Increase top end power without sacrificing low and mid range output” to achieve this Suzuki engineers had to employ advanced MotoGP derived technologies known as the Broad Power System.
Now, the 6th-generation GSX-R1000 is redefining the definition of “Superbike”. It embodies the life work and professional ambition of Suzuki engineers who are extremely passionate about the GSX-R brand and its place in motorcycle history. A team who love riding and racing, enthusiasts who were determined to restore the GSX-R1000 to its rightful place as top dog. Put simply -It is the most powerful, hardest-accelerating, cleanest-running GSX-R ever built.
