OWN THE ROADS AND THE RACET RACK
That's why we've built you the most advanced, most exciting GSX-R in history, with an aggressive new look to match.
AN UNBEATABLE PACKAGE
The Suzuki GSX-R series has defined sportbike performance for over 30 years, with more than a million sold worldwide. So the dedicated Suzuki engineers who have devoted their lives to the GSX-R take their responsibilities very seriously: every GSX-R must be very light and the best performing in its class, in an unbeatable package.
The most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R ever built. It’s also the most compact, most aerodynamic and the best handling GSX-R1000. 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.
Motion Track Brake System
This system works with the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit). The IMU constantly monitors vehicle movement in 6-directions along 3-axes, Pitch, Roll and Yaw. Using IMU input, the Motion Track Brake System¹ reduces rear wheel lift during very hard braking² on the racetrack, and is especially effective on downhill sections of track. On the GSX-R1000R the system also optimises brake pressure when the motorcycle is leaning.
Motion Track TCS Traction Control System
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 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.
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.
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.
ADVANCED RIDER TECHNOLOGY
The GSX-R1000R is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a new Motion Track Brake System¹, Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System²), Suzuki Drive Mode Selector, Launch Control and a Bi-Directional Quick Shift System.
BI-DIRECTIONAL QUICK SHIFT SYSTEM
This system allows the rider to upshift and downshift without using the clutch or the throttle. The quick shift system allows the rider to upshift smoothly and quickly at full throttle, without closing the throttle. The system automatically interrupts power delivery just long enough (between 50 and 75 milliseconds, depending upon the sensitivity adjustment) to unload the transmission gear dogs and allow a clean upshift, producing smoother, almost uninterrupted acceleration. For quicker and smoother downshifts without manually blipping the throttle twist grip or using the clutch, the system automatically opens the throttle valves just enough to increase rpm and match engine speed to the next-lower gear ratio.
The launch control system makes it easier for a racer to get a good start in competition by automatically limiting engine rpm and optimising torque delivery while the rider holds the throttle twist grip wide open and concentrates on feeding in the clutch lever. Once launch control is selected using a switch on the right handlebar, the system engages special maps controlling throttle valve opening and ignition timing. The system monitors throttle twist grip position, throttle valve position, engine rpm, gear position, front wheel speed, and rear wheel speed. At the moment of launch, the system is set to hold the engine at ideal rpm for an effective launch.
