The new-generation of the ever-popular Suzuki GSX-R have arrived in Suzuki dealerships nationwide.
Coming after a million sales over the past 30 years, Suzuki say the new-gen bikes “redefine the definition of Superbike”.
Proving their continued popularity - the first shipment of the GSX-R1000 is already nearly sold out.
Potential customers are now being encouraged to pre-order via their local dealer to secure their bike.
The top of the range GSX-R1000R is equipped with:
- Latest SHOWA BFF (Balance Free Front) forks
- SHOWA BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion lite) rear shock
- Bi-directional quick-shifter
- Launch control
- LED position lights
- Unique black LCD instrument panel display
Available in two colour schemes - Metallic Triton Blue or Glass Sparkle Black, prices start from $25,490, or $27,490 ride-away.
The GSX-R1000 ABS model is also available in three distinct colour schemes – Metallic Triton Blue, Metallic Matte Black No. 2 and Pearl Mira Red.
Prices here start from $21,990, or $23,990 ride-away.
And there’s also the Suzuki GSX-S1000/F available in both faired and naked platforms.
Sporting two all-new colour schemes - Glass Sparkle Black and Candy Red, the offering gets a more-powerful Euro 4 compliant engine.
Suzuki has bumped the power and torque up 3kW/2Nm over the old version with new outputs of 110kW/108Nm.
A back-torque-limiting clutch has been added and Suzuki tell us they have improved the design of the front brake hose for improved stopping performance and feel.
Lastly, the GSX-S1000/GSX-S1000F.
The changes here include a new smoke finish windshield (GSX-S1000F), while both offerings get blacked-out footrests, gear levers, rear brake pedals and handlebar levers.
