There’s plenty of talk surrounding Suzuki’s abrupt exit from the MotoGP paddock at the end of this year. But this hasn’t stopped Suzuki’s French arm from introducing a limited edition variant of the GSX-S950 that celebrates MotoGP’s French Grand Prix scheduled for this weekend.

Suzuki GSX-S950 R Limited Edition

Dubbed the GSX-S950 “R”, the motorcycle is based on the GSX-S950, which is essentially a detuned iteration of the flagship GSX-S1000, catering to newer riders and allowing A2 customers to limit the output to 48 horsepower.

Suzuki might be leaving MotoGP, but that hasn’t stopped Suzuki France from prepping up a limited edition GSX-S950 for MotoGP’s French round

For the limited edition build, Suzuki France gave the responsibility to renowned custom bikemaker AD Koncept.

The most radical change by the custom bikemaker is the uber-sexy livery blending silver, black, and golden colors. While the base coat is silver, the bike proudly dons Suzuki’s signature “R” logo from GSX-R finished in golden black.

To complement this, the aerodynamic wings upfront are also bathed in gold and so are the pinstripes on the alloys.

As epic as the GSX-S950 R looks, it’s hard not to wonder how better this would look with gold USD forks which would not only look dope but amplify the premium-ness of the whole package.

Livery aside, AD Koncept has equipped the motorcycle with a short-but-brawny visor up front, followed by a pillion-seat cowl at the tail end.

Not only does this look gorgeous, but it is topped by a pillion seat cowl and a brawny visor to add more character

Since Suzuki wanted AD Koncept to rertain the GSX-S950’s core components, there are no major mechanical tweaks here. All you get is an Akrapovic slip-on exhaust which helps the limited edition model stay in line with the “R” moniker.

For reference, the stock Suzuki GSX-S950 produces 94 horsepower and 67 pound-feet from its K5 GSX-R1000-derived 999cc, inline-four heart.

Only 50 examples of the GSX-S950 R will go into production, luckily not at an obnoxious price. Swipe up to know more.

Heck yeah! Instead of just one, Suzuki has asked AD Koncept to build 50 examples of the GSX-S950 R, each unit retailing at 11,549 Euros ( $12,170).

To mark the limited edition, all 50 bikes will bear a special numbered insignia on the fuel tank, #1 of which will be showcased at the Le Man’s circuit to kick off the MotoGP weekend.
