Performance, Innovation, Domination
GSX-R1000, the most powerful, hardest accelerating, cleanest running GSX-R ever. It is also the lightest and most aerodynamic GSX-R1000.
MotoGP Designed Engine
The new engine revs higher and makes more peak horsepower, while maintaining excellent low-to-mid-range power and drive. It is 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. The Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT), Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A), and Suzuki Top Feed Injector (S-TFI) systems combine to make the Broad Power System, increasing high-rpm performance without reducing low and mid-range performance. The result is strong, linear power and enhanced acceleration throughout the rpm range.
Advanced Rider Technology
The GSX-R1000 is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a new Motion Track Brake System¹, Motion Track TCS² (Traction Control System) and Suzuki Drive Mode Selector
Using the S-DMS switch on the left handlebar, the rider can select three different mapping and engine power delivery settings designed to match power delivery to various weather conditions or riding on different racetracks. The rider can change the power mode while riding, as long as the throttle is closed. Note, full power is available in all three modes. The S-DMS system works with the 10-level Motion Track TCS system, offering the rider a wide variety of power delivery and control choices.
The King of Sportbikes
Now, in its 6th-generation the GSX-R1000 is redefining what it means to be the top performer. It embodies the life work and professional ambition of Suzuki engineers who are passionate about the GSX-R1000 and its place in motorcycle history. People who love riding and racing, enthusiasts determined to restore the GSX-R1000 to its proper title of The King of Sportbikes.
The Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT), developed in MotoGP competition on the GSX-RR is unlike complicated systems used by other manufacturers, the SR-VVT system is simpler, more compact, and lighter. The system is built into the intake cam sprocket and an adjacent guide plate, using 12 steel balls positioned between slanted radial grooves in the intake cam sprocket and straight radial grooves in the guide plate attached directly to the camshaft. As centrifugal force moves the balls outward at high rpm, the offset grooves align, rotating the position of the cam sprocket on the camshaft and retarding intake cam timing, adding significantly to high-rpm power. The beauty of the SR-VVT system is in its compact simplicity, light weight, reliability and seamless operation.
Motion Track TCS
Suzuki’s advanced Motion Track TCS² 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. The TCS intervention can be changed while riding, as long as the throttle is closed. The Motion Track TCS continuously monitors front and rear wheel speed, throttle position, crankshaft position, gear position, and motorcycle motion, and quickly reduces engine power output when a loss of traction is detected or predicted. Power output is controlled by managing ignition timing and throttle valve position. Motion Track TCS reads sensor input every 4-milliseconds, for precise response. And by using input from the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), the ECM can calculate the motorcycle’s motion in 6-directions (along 3-axis, Pitch, Roll and Yaw), for more precise traction control.
The most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R ever built. It’s also the most compact and most aerodynamic GSX-R1000, with smoother throttle response and better combustion efficiency. With a supremely effective electronic engine management system, derived from MotoGP technology, it maximises drivability from the 202PS engine without being complicated to use. It’s time to Own the Racetrack
The GSX-R1000’s 4-into-2-into-1 thin-wall stainless-steel Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (S-AES) is also designed to increase high-rpm horsepower without reducing mid-range and lower-rpm power. GSX-R1000 benefits from the addition of new Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A) butterfly valves . A header balance tube connects the head pipes for cylinders #1 and #4, and another header balance tube connects the head pipes for cylinders #2 and #3, a design feature that normally increases high-rpm power at the expense of mid-range and lower-rpm power. Suzuki engineers added a servo-operated SET-A butterfly valve in each header balance tube, which remains closed to enhance mid-range and low-rpm power, then opens at high rpm to add significant top-end power.
Motion Track Brake System
The GSX-R1000 is equipped with a new Motion Track Brake System¹, which works with the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit). The IMU constantly monitors vehicle movement using IMU Pitch input. The Motion Track Brake System reduces rear wheel lift during very hard braking on the racetrack, and is especially effective on downhill sections of track.
