In 1985, Suzuki revolutionized the sportbike category with the introduction of the original GSX-R750, and then created another milestone in 2001 with the introduction of the GSX-R1000. Using the lithe chassis of the GSX-R750 and a 988cc inline four-cylinder engine design that Suzuki is renowned for, Superbike performance became available to riders everywhere.
At the pinnacle of the GSX-R family of ultra-high-performance motorcycles, the 2022 GSX-R1000R’s versatile engine provides class-leading power that is delivered smoothly and controllably across a broad rpm range. Like the original GSX-R1000, the 2022’s compact chassis delivers nimble handling with excellent suspension feel and braking control, ready to conquer a racetrack or cruise a country road. Advanced electronic rider aids such as traction control, launch control, and a bi-directional quick shifter enhance the riding experience while the distinctive, aerodynamic GSX-R bodywork slices through the wind.
With a stunning appearance creates as much envy as its performance, riders can choose a GSX-R1000R with a new Metallic Matte Black and Glass Matte Mechanical Gray paint scheme or a Metallic Matte Black paint scheme. Both with bold, contrasting graphics that rival the appearance of any other street bike.
The GSX-R1000R continues its reign as the best liter-class supersport with an unmatched combination of reliability, durability, usability, and overall performance with excellent racing potential in a striking package that respects the GSX-R legacy.
