Suzuki lines up to the tendencies for 2009 and ads white on the list of colors for the GSX-R 600, GSX-R 750 and the Hayabusa. As you may have noticed, these are the bikes that don’t feature any updates, the 2009 GSX-R 1000 being excluded.
The new color schemes and graphics are among the most appropriate for these models so far, leaving no questions to be asked related to technical evolution.
Suzuki Great Britain announces GSX-R1000 Cameron Donald and GSX-R600 Bruce Anstey replicas as celebration of the Suzuki Relentless by TAS team victories in the Superbike, Superstock and Supersport categories.
The special edition motorcycles are production-based and, certainly, a dream came true for fans of motorcycle racing. They feature the team’s coloring and graphics and exert a magical attraction even from the pictures.
George Cheesman, marketing manager of Suzuki GB referring to this subject, "The Relentless by TAS team achieved incredible success at this year’s TT, almost delivering a clean sweep of wins. To celebrate this, we are pleased to offer these special edition models via the authorised dealer network in the team livery, with celebratory graphics in addition too."
Retail price for the GSX-R1000 Donald replica is £9,170 while for the GSX-R600 Anstey replica is £7,403.
Manufacturers that are successful on the track often apply this strategy in order to get more money on virtually the same product and for customer paid commercial. But as you take a look at the bikes you understand why each and every time fans compete for these bikes and then compete on them.
Suzuki unveiled the 2009 GSX-R 1000 recently at the Paris show and this video is the closest thing to an official one yet. We’re still waiting for the version which truly reflects this supersport’s qualities.
I would definitely say yes if you do it the right way…which is pretty much the way that this guy does. A burnout in the garage now apparently replaces the traditional cookie sharing when it comes to bonding with neighbors.
Suzuki presents today a dream come true: the Limited Edition MotoGP inspired Suzuki GSX-R1000.
Riders longing to look like Capirossi and Vermeulen must know that Suzuki has made this new limited edition GSX-R1000 available in special blue color, exactly like the one of the Suzuki GSV-R. Their strategy is to allow Loris Capirossi and Chris Vermeulen, as well as the team’s fans, to take to the road a GP-inspired colored version of one of the best track racing bikes ever made.
A number of exactly 800 lucky future owners from Australia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, South Africa, UK, Spain and other countries will be riding this racing bike with headlight. On top of the 2008 Grand Prix base colour, a set of both Capirossi and Vermeulen graphics is also available in some markets.

With the Hayabusa, Suzuki is a recognized sprint leader, but the Gixer 1000 doesn’t stay behind for long. Yet another occasion to prove that was the 2008 aintree motorcycle sprint, from where we’ve managed to obtain this video. Check it out!
When you talk about two wheels there are few chances you won’t be expressing your love for races, a fully opened throttle, the way it sounds, the smell of burned gasses and eventually rubber. But, in contrast with all this, big motorbike houses create increasingly restrictive rules concerning pollution and they invest big bucks in learning how to effectively exploit biological fuel.
A very interesting example is the work done by Team Alstare, which ever since 2007 has spend time developing small engines for bikes and quads which are planned to run on bio fuel.
The big objective of this practice is to improve the process in which the plant becomes fuel in order to obtain a stronger bang, optimizing this way the costs and properly exploiting the resources.
And if you were thinking that all this is only bla bla bla and nothing consistent, I must tell you that a remarkable result is an agricultural quad powered by a mixture of 85% bioethanol and 15% gasoline. Also, Alstare presented a GSX-R1000 Superstock prototype using the same recipe and keeping the proportions.
The culmination point was on the track of Monza where Alan Cathcart made a demonstration of power on the two revolutionary wheels. The machine, made in Belgium, is now a benchmark bio racing engines.
Let’s just hope that in a few years, respecting the EU regulations, there will be attempts of Superbike and MotoGP ecological races. The ice was broken and big results wait on the corner!
Suzuki will produce the GSX-R1000 under yet another coloring and have it called a limited edition model. Color combination for this unique ride will be pearl white and metallic silver and all authorized dealers will sell it for the equivalent of $15,840.
George Cheeseman, head of the marketing department at Suzuki GB comments: “Customer demand in the past has proven how popular the limited colour runs are, so we are pleased to be able to offer this addition to the already popular GSX-R (...) > Full story
Is this the bike on which Chris Vermeulen plans on winning the 2009 MotoGP? We’ve come across this photo from the first tests of Chris Vermeulen on the evolution version of the GSV-R with which the Australian pilot will attempt to conquer the 2009 MotoGP title. Perfectly reflecting the team’s strategy, the bike, equipped with sidecar and car wheels as balance and the aerodynamic features do all the trick. I don’t know how a shoulder-to-shoulder final lap will look with this thing on the track, but the idea is daring, challenging and funny.
