2018 suzuki gsx-r1000

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.

Prices start from $15,190 ($16,690 ride-away) for the S1000, $15,990 ($17,490) for the S1000F.
