We’ve got some new pricing details regarding the Suzuki GSX-R1000R, if you’re interested?
So, it seems as though the new Suzuki GSX-R1000R is going to be priced at $16,999, while the GSX-R1000 will be priced at $14,599.
Since it’s been a while, we’ll remind you of some of the cool tech specs for the GSX-R1000R. As you know, the standard GSX-R1000 is already amazing, and features some of the highest technology for sportsbikes available right now. However, when it comes to the GSX-R1000R, the engineers took it to another level by adding advanced rider aids such as clutchless up-and-down quick shifting, launch control system, and an IMU-influenced motion track anti-lock brake system.
In addition, the machine features a brand-new 999.8-cc liquid-cooled, 4-cylinder engine, which also carries six-speed transmission. Moreover, the GSX-R1000R gains a lightweight upper fork clamp, LED lights and a compact competition battery, which again are just some of the amazing features which make this bike amazing. The GSX-R1000 will be available in dealerships at some point during March and the GSX-R1000R will be available by May.
When questioned about the new pricing, Rob Cooper, who is the UK Marketing Manager for Suzuki, stated that:
“Anticipation is high for both the GSX-R1000R and the GSX-R1000, and we’re delighted to be able to confirm highly-competitive pricing for both models. The GSX-R1000R was designed and built a fresh from the ground up, and gets a comprehensive electronics package to further enhance its performance. We’re also really pleased to be able to offer a stripped back version of our flagship sports bike that delivers the same, unrivaled engine performance and class-leading power at a lower price point. Our brand philosophy is to deliver value-packed products at a great price, and the GSX-R1000 is both brand new and the most affordable litre sports bike on the market”.
