The new Suzuki 2017 GSX-R1000 & GSX-R100R set to headline at Intermot
Suzuki have released information and images associated with the all-new GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R, which are set to headline the Intermot motor show in Cologne. The manufacturer has implemented technology which has been developed from the winning MotoGP GSX-RR machine, which also features a brand new swing arm and frame design.
The superbike is said to have the most powerful GSX-R engine supplied by the manufacturer, with the new power plant which produces 202PS at 13,200rpm. Each bike uses a 999.8cc incline four-cylinder engine, with exceptional dimensions and a strategic layout in order to boost cornering performance, as well as including new pins, pistons, rings and titanium valves for ultimate racing power. Suzuki have also announced that they have condensed the engine length for improved stability and “front end feel”.
Taking inspiration from competition in MotoGP, Suzuki have developed a wide-ranging electronics package, featuring a 10-mode traction control system, a Motion Track Brake System and three rider mode.
One of the main differences between the two bikes is that the GSX-R1000R includes a launch system control which allows the rider to make faster and much smoother starts as well as benefiting from the manufacturers ABS function.
We can expect the GSX-R1000 to arrive early spring, whilst the GSX-R1000R is hoped to launch later in the season.
