2001 Suzuki GSX-R1000

2001 Suzuki GSX-R1000

The GSX-R1000 is a select member of the superbike elite club, with the 2001 MY taking off where the 750er left off. Without being significantly bigger or heavier than the traditional 750cc Gixxer, this bike however packs a significant power and torque upgrade. One of the high-performance components is the Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) digital-control exhaust back pressure adjustment. The high-end steel-titanium-aluminium construction of the exhaust system provides dynamic response to the engine revs and maximizes the power deployment.

For 2001, Suzuki introduced a new GSX-R model that replaced the largest and most powerful model of the GSX-R series sport bike, the GSX-R1100, with the all new GSX-R1000. The Suzuki GSX-R1000 is capable of leading the fast group at track days or winning races but useable and stable on the road. It’s not super fast steering but it’s still a nimble bike. Really hard use can show up weaknesses in the Suzuki GSX-R1000's front brakes. Try fresh fluid and pads but if they doesn’t work, a Brembo 1920 master cylinder should help.

2002 Suzuki GSX-R1000

After being named Sport Rider Magazine's 2001 Bike of the Year, the GSX-R1000 carries on the race track-proven heritage and introduces a new paint scheme in red and black, bolt-on bungee hooks and a sleek-looking polished stainless steel exhaust. Under the luxuriuous, aggressive bodywork, the GSX-R1000 is hiding a monstrous 999cc in-line 4 engine which can deliver 160 hp and whose 6-speed gearbox is engineered to deliver top performance both on track and street.

The 2003 MY GSX-R1000 may look a lot like its v-twin sibling, but we're dealing with a full-fledged in-line four-powered machine this time. Sharing a top place in the liter-class superbike segment with the TL1000R, the big Gixxer is more powerful, with its 988cc engie producing 162 hp and 120 Nm of torque.

The engine sits in a black aluminium frame with an adjustable swingarm pivot, rolling on cast wheels and beefy 43mm USD forks with extensive adjustment options, just like you'd expect from a racing bike. The 2003 MY GSX-R1000 has a 6-speed transmission, EFI system, racing-grade titanium exhaust and upgraded cooling efficiency.


2004 Suzuki GSX-R1000

2004 Suzuki GSX-R1000

The liter-class Gixxer is the Motorcyclist magazine's Motorcycle Of The Year for 2003 and Cycle World's Best Superbike for the same year, and this means more than simple words. The 2004 MY GSX-R1000 mixes the best of both track and street worlds, with race-derived features and "civil" riding manners for an experience which is always thrilling.

This model brings 162 hp and 120 Nm of torque to the game, with a new programmable shifting light assistant, improved air intake, a new ECU, a lower seat height and adding 4-pot radial calipers for less flex under hard braking. A titanium exhaust is also part of the game, with new lights and redesigned instruments.

The 2005 model year GSX-R1000 is a redesigned machine, with a new chassis and a slightly bigger engine. The aluminium frame is shorter and provides sharper steering, but the wheelbase remained almost the same. The 999cc engine comes with some extra punch, and new, radial brake calipers with racing-like performance, a new catalytic silencer made from titanium and which provides reduced turbulence.

With 178 horsepower at hand, the GSX-R1000 is definitely not a toy for the inexperienced. The bike is built for high-performance and is not exactly the most forgiving of them all.

The 2006 MY GSX-R1000 has not received significant changes over the previous version, as it looks like the current recipe works just well. The wind-tunnel-developed bodywork cuts the air almost to perfection, allowing the liter Gixxer to benefit from minimal drag, while the ram-air intake ports are integrated with the fairing. The same level of flush-mount integration cant be observed in the turn signal department, with the front ones embedded into the mirrors and the rear ones into the tail section.

The transmission is equipped with a back-torque limiting clutch, while the Suzuki Exhaust Tuning System modifies the exhaust pressure for constant, optimal engine torque in all scenarios.

2013 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Commemorative Edition

Suzuki Celebrates One Million GSX-Rs With Commemorative Motorcycle

Suzuki has recently produced its one millionth GSX-R motorcycle and is celebrating this special milestone with a commemorative edition of its flagship sportsbike, the GSX-R1000.

Worldwide there will be 1,985 commemorative editions of the GSX-R1000 available, to celebrate the very first year the GSX-R was born.

The GSX-R legend began in 1985 with the launch of the GSX-R750, the range propelling Suzuki to the forefront of motorcycle racing, making the GSX-R series the flagship of the brand and a favourite amongst professional racers and riding enthusiasts.

From the beginning, Suzuki has constantly redefined the GSX-R range into a super sport line-up that delivers the pure excitement of racing performance.

The introduction of the GSX-R750 changed the world of sportsbikes forever, as the first mass produced race replica, it was a race bike first and a street bike second.

Joining the GSX-R750 was the GSX-R600 and GSX-R1000, which equally dominated racetracks and sales in Australia and internationally.

Since its introduction just over a decade ago, the GSX-R1000 has won multiple championships and filled 1,000cc production based road racing grids worldwide and currently holds the Australian Superbike Champion title.

Ridden by 2009 and 2012 Australian Superbike Champion Josh Waters, four-time New Zealand Superbike Champion Robbie Bugden and also recently retired three-time Australian Superbike Champion Shawn Giles, the GSX-R1000 continues to own the racetrack.

Featuring class-mastering performance, cutting-edge technology, design and engineering, the GSX-R1000 is the ultimate fusion of performance and design and delivers excellent mid-range power and acceleration.

The commemorative edition of the GSX-R1000 features a brand-new colour scheme reflecting its race heritage, decals on wheels, special anniversary decals and matching seat cowl.

Some say that the GSX-R1000 is in need of a major revamping job and might be true, as the bike remained almost unchanged fro quite a long run. However, if you throw a leg over the 2012 MY GSX-R1000 you'll be thrilled to see that there is rather little which can be improved to make a different machine. Technically, the liter-class Gixxer is derived from the actual bikes used in road racing series and this is why you're looking at a machine which delivers spectacular results when pushed hard.


The bike is loaded with a ton of proprietary technologies which take everything to the next level, literally, so we can say that the GSX-R1000 is a machine engineered for those aho are only a step away from being actual pro racers.

Getting edgier and edgier with each passing model year, the GSX-R1000 remains one of the elite liter-class superbikes, a machine engineered to deliver both on the street and on the race track. In fact, it's the closed circuit racing the GSX-R1000 has been built for, and the fact that Suzuki decided to add street-legal amenities to it is because Hamamatsu wanted you to see how sizzling hot the bike is for yourself.

Last year (2013) marked the birth of the GSX-R number 1 million, and this is a very good testimony of how popular these bikes are. With nearly 200 hp, the 2014 MY GSX-R1000 comes with ram-air intakes, dual throttle valve injection, and three riding modes for the various scenarios.

The 2015 MY GSX-R1000 celebrates Suzuki's return to MotoGP, and offers a Racing Blue livery which harks back to the looks of the Rizla-sponsored bikes of the past. The GSX-R1000 has been tested alongside the GSX-RR machine and even has borrowed some technologies from the actual prototype. GSX-R1000 comes with a high-grip seat and adjustable rider pegs which also reposition the rear brake pedal and master cylinder. On the left side of the bike the shift lever can also be adjusted for various riders.


Cue lighter tappets and pistons for stronger acceleration, monoblock Brembo calipers, a Showa Big Piston Fork, fully-adjustable suspensions, a racing-grade slipper clutch and three engine mappings for various riding scenarios.
