In 2010, Suzuki will celebrate 25 years of producing the GSX-R series and have created a limited edition GSX-R1000 for the occasion. Called the Suzuki GSX-R1000Z, the anniversary edition will only feature cosmetic differences compared to a standard GSX-R1000 K9 or K10 model (there’s no mechanical difference between the two model years anyway).

Only 1000 such bikes will be made and feature a gold or beige frame, swingarm and parts of the fairing combined with the dominant pearl white color on the fairing. Also, the Gixxer will feature 25th anniversary graphics on the fairing, mufflers, wheel rims and ignition key, as well as a serial number plate.

Suzuki plans to take the wraps off the GSX-R1000Z 25th anniversary edition this week at the NEC Show in Birmingham.

Update: Video is attached after the break.

Leaving the parts of your Suzuki GSX-R spread around the garage turns out being an inspired choice as the magic attraction between these get the bike together in less than five minutes.

Actually, this video was done with the use of stop-action photography in order to show the most important steps of the assembly process without showing the actual people that got the job done. I wonder if that’s also the way things get done back in Japan.

It’s official! None of the 2010 GSX-R models will be technically new, as revealed by these photos. Still, Suzuki has come up with a new blue/white color scheme for their notorious supersport lineup and this even includes dark blue coating for the frame and swingarm. Prices of the 2010-spec GSX-R1000, GSX-R750 and GSX-R600 are yet to be announced.

Riding among all kinds of lunatics, a biker can never be too careful. That is why during motorcycle safety courses, instructors advise students to always check their mirrors, even when sitting at a traffic light, stop sign, or simply stopping along side of the road. But the thing is that nobody advises you about this sort of crap. I can’t imagine how that car ended up riding the Gixxer…I just hope the rider is ok.

Superbike Magazine got their hands on the leaked official shots of the future Suzuki GSX-R125 model that is supposed to compete with the Honda CBR125 and Yamaha Yamaha YZF-R125. The 125cc four-stroke motorcycle is far from the official unveiling and that’s what makes these photos so precious. They show how Suzuki Suzuki manages to perfectly mimic the styling of larger GSX-R models and make this the dream of every teenager with a soft spot for motorcycling.

Given the fact that the frame is most likely pressed steel and not cast or extruded aluminum, the bike will have a dry weight of around 125kg and will be powered by a 15bhp motor. Ok, so it won’t beat any power-to-weight ratio, but the multi-layered plastics and banana swingarm go straight to the rider’s heart. Also, expect for non-adjustable suspension.

The Suzuki GSX-R125 is a very late addition to a very attractive segment, but this also makes it interesting and tempting for those who always want to stay ahead of the competition. We will have to wait and see if this means that Suzuki will finally get their piece of the 125cc superbike pie.

A French fan of Suzuki has imagined the Japanese manufacturer’s 2010 model range and put his Photoshop skills to work in a quite successful (in our opinion) attempt of showing how the B-King , GSX-R series, GSX650F , SV650 , SV1000 and DR-Z400SM might end up looking in the year to come.

While the visual changes imagined for each motorcycle aren’t dramatic, this might very well reflect reality for models which won’t be significantly upgraded.

Yoshimura uses the experience gained in AMA Superbike racing to create a limited edition Suzuki GSX-R1000 . Features such as the high-lift cams, a quick shifter, numerous suspension upgrades and a full titanium-carbon exhaust are surely enough to help make an impression on the bike that comes as a clearly superior alternative to the recently unveiled Buell 1125RR racing motorcycle, which will compete in the AMA Superbike series.

The fact that the Buell motorcycle is not for sale to the general public determined Mat Mladin, former AMA Superbike Champion, to contest the AMA’s decision to let Buell’s turnkey racer compete in the series. As a contradiction to this fact, the Suzuki GSX-R1000RR is street-legal and also available to the public, which shows how racing experience always stands out when it all reduces to the facts/benefits.

Price and availability are yet to be announced, but those who miss their exemplar can very well built their own by simply buying the Yoshimura aftermarket parts and having them mounted on a standard Suzuki GSX-R1000.

Hit the jump to read the bike’s impressive features.

Roaring Toyz has just finished customizing this Suzuki GSX-R 1000 for Mat Mladin! Does the name sound familiar to you? Mat Mladin is the winner of six titles in the AMA Superbike Championship and the recent founder of Bike Gear Warehouse Company, which is also the reason why he ordered this custom made motorcycle.

The Suzuki GSX-R 1000 K9 by Roaring Toyz will be officially unveiled in two days at Laguna Seca and it will then start a promoting tour for the newly born company on all the tracks where AMA Superbike rounds are planned. The bike will then be taken to Australia (Mladin’s home country), where it will be used to promote Bike Gear Warehouse in their job of distributing Roaring Toyz custom sportbike parts.

While the world expects the launch of a direct competitor for the Ducati
Streetfighter
, designer Oberdan Bezzi comes up with the naked version of the 2009 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 , which looks like the appropriate thing for the job.

Also, the Suzuki SuperKatana 1000 stands as Japan’s response to the BMW K 1300 R , a model which together with the Ducati Streetfighter managed to slightly worry Japanese builders.

Italian company RM Racing got their hands on a Suzuki GSX-R 1100 and modified it into a veritable dirt bike just to show off their talent in taking the ordinary and transforming it into something totally out of the ordinary.

At a first glance, the bike looks like an old thumper, but as you get a closer look at it it’s easy to realize that someone spent a great deal of time undergoing a serious, but partial transformation from superbike to dirt bike.

The engine displacement was increased to 1,200cc, modification that required a new set of pistons and a new engine head. The original swingarm was replaced with an aluminum unit taken straight off a 1993 GSX-R 750 model and an Ohlins shock was added as well. The bike features cool new KTM parts such as an inverted front fork, brake system and wheels, but it’s impossible not to spot the immense four-cylinder engine that was built for speed. This now evacuates burned gasses through a four-into-one exhaust with no silencer whatsoever! I don’t want to be anywhere close to this thing when it climbs a hill.

Having also changed the bars and adding a pair of more appropriate plastic fenders, the Italians finished their unique project and took it for a test run. Nice!
