pumps out a massive 212 hp and comes with carbon-fiber and MotoGP components

Remember that special GSX-R 1000R with carbon-fiber fairing, top-spec exhaust, race-styled screen and lever guards we spoke about last week? Well, we thought that this was a limited edition affair to showcase Yoshimura’s involvement as the former’s official partner for the upcoming MotoGP season.

At least we were right about the limited edition part. What it is, is the Suzuki GSX-R1000R Ryuyo. It is a not so cheap, nor can be ridden on the street version of the “King of Sportsbike” that gets a bump in power to a crazy 212 hp while losing out a huge 77 pounds, courtesy - so much carbon-fiber.

The bike gets the name from Ryuyo, a small place with a big name located close to Hamamatsu, Japan. This development center has an off-road track and a road course. It’s basically where most Suzuki motorcycles are developed. But one thing’s for sure – it is the fastest test track in the world. And now, it is also the fastest GSX-R1000R ever.

With only 20 units to be made available, this extremely limited edition GSX-R based on their sportier 1000R variant will run on top-spec components from some the industry’s best-known brands to make it the fastest, most powerful, hardest-accelerating, cleanest-running GSX-R ever produced.

It gets an all-carbon fiber fairing with airbox ducts to shelve massive weights from the mighty GSX-R 1000R. The same material is also used for the Carbon front-mudguard and the Carbon frame-guards. Yoshimura plays with the R-11 exhaust made entirely of titanium along with the EM PRO control unit switchboard and wiring across the handlebars and the TFT instrumentation.

Multi-adjustable GP EVO footpegs, brake calipers dissipators, lever guards, Engine crankcase protectors amongst other have been 3D machined from solid billet aluminum. The Ryuyo also gets MotoGP styled Plexiglass screen, and an HP closed cell Neoprene saddle. Bonamici components also creep in the form of aluminum Racing steering plate and a Racing tank cap.
