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. 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.

The Most Powerful GSX-R ever 

The all-new, 999.8cm3 in-line four cylinder, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine, is the most powerful, hardest accelerating, cleanest running GSX-R engine ever built. Producing 148.6kW (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.

Suzuki Racing VVT

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 centrifugally operated system is built into the intake cam sprocket and an adjacent guide plate, using 12 steel balls and slanted grooves to rotate the sprocket and retard the intake valve timing at a pre-set rpm, adding significantly to high-rpm power.

 

Suzuki Racing Finger follower valve train 

The new GSX-R1000 uses a valve train developed in MotoGP competition, using thinner-wall, hollow camshafts operating lighter, F1-style pivoting finger followers. Each finger follower is 6 grams lighter than a conventional bucket tappet (10 grams vs. 16 grams), and because each follower pivots on a fixed shaft, its moving mass is just 3 grams. The lighter moving mass allows maximum engine rpm and valve lift to be increased while improving valve response and maintaining accurate valve control. Each finger follower in the GSX-R1000 is designed based on the actual followers used in the GSX-RR MotoGP racebike, including a DLC coating to increase durability.

Suzuki Top Feed Injectors (S-TFI)

New, ride-by-wire downdraft throttle bodies are 19mm shorter, simpler, lighter and more compact than the previous model’s throttle bodies, with a larger bore (46mm versus 44mm). The new throttle bodies each have a single butterfly valve controlled by an advanced electronic engine management system, and each cylinder is fed by two ultra-fine-atomization 10-hole injectors. One injector is mounted at a steep angle in the throttle body itself and operates any time the engine is running. A second showerhead Injector―also known as a Top Feed Injector (TFI)―is mounted in the top of the airbox, directly over each throttle body velocity stack, and operates at higher rpm. The TFI showerhead injector delivers fuel in an optimised spray pattern designed to enhance combustion efficiency, throttle response and top-end power.

Suzuki Dual-Stage Intake (S-DSI) 

The S-DSI system has dual-stage intake funnels for cylinders #1 and #4, and single-stage, conventional intake funnels for cylinders #2 and #3. Normally, shorter conventional intake funnels are better for high-rpm power while longer conventional intake funnels are better for low and mid-range power. Thanks to the physics of air flow, S-DSI intake funnels provide the best of both, acting like a longer intake funnel at low and mid rpm, and acting like a shorter intake funnel at higher rpm.

Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A) 

GSX-R1000 models have long used a servo-operated Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) butterfly valve built into the mid- pipe to help maximize torque throughout the rpm range by adjusting back pressure based on engine rpm, throttle position and gear position. But the new GSX-R1000’s exhaust system improves on that idea with 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 by reducing back pressure and adding volume, at the expense of mid-range and lower-rpm power.  Suzuki engineers added two servo-operated SET-A butterfly valves, one in each header balance tube. The SET-A valve in each header balance tube remains closed to enhance lower-rpm and mid-range power, then opens to increase volume, reduce back pressure and work with pressure waves to add significant power at higher rpm.

Forged Aluminium Pistons

Each forged aluminium piston has short skirts and cutaway sides to reduce weight and friction, a DLC-coated wrist pin to reduce friction and a carefully shaped piston dome to increase compression while also enhancing combustion efficiency. The L-shaped upper compression ring is pushed out against the cylinder wall by combustion pressure, reducing blow-by and improving sealing. The oil control ring features a chrome-nitride coating, which is harder and smoother than conventional chrome plating, reducing friction, increasing durability, and also enhancing sealing.

Advanced Electronics

The IMU-based advanced electronic management system is operated by a 32-bit dual processor ECM (Electronic Control Module). As the rider turns the handlebar twist grip, the ECM reads throttle position, crankshaft position and rpm, gear position, front and rear wheel speed, IMU position and exhaust oxygen content. The system then adjusts ignition timing, opens or closes the throttle valves, and adjusts the amount of injected fuel to work with the traction control system, maximise intake charge velocity, and produce more efficient and complete combustion. The result is effective traction control and more linear throttle response, along with more power, more torque and reduced emissions across the rpm range.

Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System) 

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 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.

10 Levels of Motion Track TCS Intervention

The rider can chose from 10 levels of Motion Track TCS intervention: Mode 1 is the minimum, Mode 10 is the maximum intervention level. Modes 1-4 are designed for racetrack riding; Modes 5-8 are designed for street riding; and Modes 9-10 are designed for slippery road conditions. Modes 1-4 allow some rear-wheel spin on the racetrack, for the experienced rider who prefers minimal electronic intervention. In Modes 5-8, the Motion Track TCS intervenes earlier than it does in Modes 1-4. Modes 9-10 are designed for slippery road conditions, and the system activates earlier than in other modes.

Motion Track Brake System 

Both models are equipped with the new Motion Track Brake System, which 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 System reduces rear-wheel lift during very hard braking on the racetrack, and is especially effective on downhill sections of track. On the GSX-R1000R model, the system also optimises brake pressure when the motorcycle is leaning.

New Brembo Discs and Radial-Mount Calipers 

New Brembo stainless steel brake discs are 10 mm larger in diameter, measuring 320mm. Each disc features a new hybrid mounting system using a 50/50 combination of 5 conventional spring loaded floating pin mounts and 5 Brembo T-drive floating mounts. The Brembo T-drive floating mounts are lighter yet have more contact area between the disc and inner carrier, requiring fewer mounts (10) than conventional mounts alone (12), minimising the weight gain from the larger discs. But T-drive mounts can also produce an audible rattle in certain conditions. Conventional spring-loaded pin mounts are slightly heavier and produce a smaller contact area, but are quieter. Using a combination of T-drive and pin mounts reduces rattle as well as requiring fewer mounting points.
The GSX-R1000’s Brembo radial-mount, monoblock front brake calipers each have four 32mm pistons and work with a radial-pump, 19mm master cylinder. The rear brake system uses a single-piston caliper and a 220mm disc. The end of the front brake lever is slotted to reduce the chance that wind pressure will induce brake drag at high speed.

All-New and Lighter Aluminium Chassis

The new GSX-R1000’s chassis is more compact and narrower than the previous model’s chassis. Suzuki engineers designed a new twin-spar aluminium perimeter frame that’s 20mm narrower at the widest point between the spars and weighs 10% less. It’s constructed of four sections, welded together. Two main spar sections are built up using inner castings and outer stampings to optimise torsional rigidity, and link the cast steering head/front engine hanger section to the cast rear section incorporating upper and lower rear engine mounts and swingarm pivot plates. The frame is 60mm wider and stronger at the rear engine mounts, reducing vibration. The upper rear shock mount is moved back by 48mm and down by 20mm, making room for a race team to install a modified fuel tank for longer-distance events. The new bolt-on rear subframe is now made of square aluminuim tubing, reducing weight by 38%.

Racing Inspired Aluminium Swingarm 

A new aluminium swingarm is braced on both sides instead of on one, to improve weight and rigidity balance. It’s also 25mm longer from the pivot shaft to the rear-most axle position, improving cornering feel on the racetrack.

Suzuki Easy Start System 

The dual processor ECM also runs a new one-touch Suzuki Easy Start system, and an idle-speed system, which improves cold starting, reduces cold-start emissions and stabilises engine idle under various conditions, based on coolant temperature. The convenient Suzuki Easy Start System automatically starts the engine with one touch of the starter button mounted in the switch module on the right handlebar; there’s no need to hold the button down until the engine fires. Thanks to the new system, the rider doesn’t have to pull the clutch lever in to start the engine, as long as the transmission is in neutral.

Low RPM Assist

Suzuki’s new Low RPM Assist system monitors and automatically adjusts engine rpm when taking off from a stop or riding slowly. The system makes it easier to pull away from a standstill or maneuver in heavy traffic or through a crowded car park. 

Improved Aerodynamics

The new GSX-R1000 has MotoGP-inspired, sleeker and more aerodynamic bodywork designed to improve handling and top speed on the racetrack.
The front fairing is 13mm narrower, and reshaped fairing ears are closer to the handlebars and produce better air flow around the rider’s hands and arms. The lower leading edge of the fairing nose directs air into new Suzuki Ram-Air Direct (SRAD) intake ducts, which have a smoother internal shape that increases the flow of pressurised air into the air cleaner box. The fairing radiator cowl projects forward on each side, directing more cooling air into the radiator itself. The shape of the front fender increases down force, smoothes the flow of cooling air into the radiator and increases the air reaching the front brake calipers. The bodywork has a more connected flow line from the fairing nose to the tail section. It has a smaller frontal projected area and smoother wind-tunnel-developed lines, reducing the coefficient of drag and also reducing lift at racetrack speeds. It’s lighter, producing less moment of inertia and less leverage on the center of gravity. And it directs the air flow to improve engine and brake cooling while also increasing down force, rider wind protection, and engine efficiency. Which means that besides looking great, the new bodywork also helps the GSX-R1000 run, turn, and stop on the racetrack.

Bonus Bi-Directional Quick Shift System

The racing-type bi-directional quick shift system as featured on the GSX-R1000R is now available as standard on the GSX-R1000 ABS as part of the current SPECIAL OFFER. The quickshifter 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.
