The newest generation of GSX-R1000 features an engine that produces more horsepower and torque than ever, with quicker acceleration to match - both from a standing start and in roll-on blasts through the gears. It’s also been redesigned to shave precious pounds, making it a phenomenal 8.8 to 28.6 pounds lighter than its closest rivals. Its light weight along with completely refined suspension front and rear give the GSX-R1000 the edge needed to Own the Racetrack.

To own your piece of the track in 2006, there’s only one choice: the GSX-R1000.

2006 Suzuki GSXR 1000

First impression

Buying a motorbike can be very hard at times. One probable reason for this is the numerous brands that all promise to sell the best bike model.

One of Suzuki’s leading brands is the 2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000. This is not surprising since this bike boasts of having a powerful engine and torque. As such, the buyer can be assured that it will have an incredible acceleration or speed. Due to its lighter weight and easy to understand functions, the bike is easy to handle. Another change with the Suzuki GSX-R1000 is the 4.8 gallon fuel capacity. As such, there is no more need to make frequent stops at gasoline stations.

At an affordable price of 10,999 dollars, the buyer can buy it in the color combinations blue and white, silver and gray, as well as red and black. He can purchase the bike online or in Suzuki stores near his or her house. No matter where he buys the bike, he is still guaranteed to receive the one-year warranty with an unlimited mileage. No doubt about it, every penny he spends on this bike will be worth it.

got me gixer 1000 k6 up to 159.9 bhp at rear wheel with a k&n,yoshi half system without set valve and power commander,dyno set up,stock is 153 bhp..anyone who states 160 at rear wheel and a true 190 mph stock set up is on drugs...

Hi Guys,

I currently own a K6 1000. I have tinted the indicators, eliminator, double bubble, race levers, Michelin CT2 Tyres, smaller front cog, de-restricted, irridium plugs, power commander. and its um.....goes.
Had it to 277kms before the work.
Yet to get the suspension perfect.
The only problem I have had is I got to the bottom of some twistes and found I had no front brakes. I upgraded the pads to dual carbon after
and now the disks are warpped. My friend wrote off his when he got to a
corner and found he had no front breaks. I love the bike but I want other people to be aware of what their breaks are doing. I currently am looking for options to upgrade the front breaks. Safe riding all.

gday,dave from oz.2 weeks ago i bought a gsxr 1000cc/2001model.still havnt been out of 3rd gear yet,the power of this beast is awsome,i am not an xperienced rider by any means.i learned on a cbr600f/98 and thought that was quick,but the gixxer makes it look and feel like a toy,no disrespect to the cbr,but there is just no comparison whatsoever.will just have to bide my time and treat this bike with the utmost of respect.gixxer 1000cc/2001 is simply awsome........

so happy with my 06 /1000 used to race/riding since 69 one of the best bike around since the 750 yamaha 2strokes . my 06 stock needs nothing just double bouble screen and tank proctector

  (6021) posted on 02.15.2008

Can anyone tell me what is the stock rwhp on the 06 gixxer 1000? trying to settle a argument. Yes i do own one, but that does not seem to convice this a-hole.

  (1) posted on 08.20.2007

I have owned 6 Gixxr’s to date. Three 750’s and three 1000’s. I am currently riding an 06 1000. The power is great and the handleing is good. I sometimes miss the 750 (it was a little easier to come out of corners) I still get on my buddy’s 07 750, when I want to thrash corners hard. Like Josh, (glad to see someone else dragging knee, I change my sliders on a regular basis along with tires.) I like softer tires for better grip (I’m a fan of the power pilots). I’m on my third set of tires in 3,500 miles. For those of you that can’t get the front end up, I suggest twisting your wrist a little more. The bike has great power and I love third gear. As for wheelies......WOW....I can ride one from first gear to fifth up to about 150 MPH. I like to clutch wheelies and can do it up to fourth gear. As for top speed....My speedo flashes @ 186 MPH, but the bike still pulls. I’m not much of a top speed person, I enjoy the twistys way too much. The one thing I don’t like about the bike is the front brakes. DAMN they do . I’m in the process of putting steal braided brake lines, new pads and wave rotors on, hopefully I’ll be happy. I’ve made some engine upgrades (and exhaust). Right now, the bike dynos @ 168 RWHP. It is by all means powerful enough. To the guys that ride straight, hit the twistys, then you will enjoy the bike more. If anyone else has had braking issues let me know. Maybe I’m just a little to hard on them. To those of you that can’t ride on a track, go slay a dragon, thats about the best closest thing.

i have had my stock 06 gsxr 1000
@ 160.mph with more to go

  (1) posted on 03.17.2007

you must be on crack or some other drug. to believe this bike weighs only 166lbs(curb weight).
the manufacture website states the weight as 379lbs(dry weight)i do agree the bike is badass machine. but, i can probally walk all over at least 30-40% of the people who own a 1000. on my 99 yzf-r6.

by the way I own a 2006 gsxr 1000 and in denver at bandimere speed way I clocked 9.8 @ 143.6 mph in the quarter mile with a .600 reaction time and the horse power is off by a little my bike dynoed at the wheel ( at 5722 ft above sea level ) 157 hp and the top speed of my bike after I just changed out the sprockets is 187 mph!! That is 16\45 #520 x ring conversion

and fstrthnu so what you can ride a wheelie @ 133 good for you, Can you slam your bike into a canyon turn at 95 or better. I can ride a wheelie just fine but that is not what will get you away from that asshole that changes lanes while talking on his f%$#ing cell phone right in front of you leaving you no choice and no where to go. I ride with guys that can ride wheelies too and it looks cool mad props for having the balls to do it but dont tell somebody they dont know how to ride cause they dont ride wheelies everyone rides different

by the way the GSXR 1000 is one of the sickest bikes i have owned that incluedes my 2006 haybusa that just sits in my garadge cause it handels like a and has no where near the throttle responce of my 1000, and my haybusa has about 8000 in aftermarket proformance parts ( cams, gears, powercommander, full exhaust, you name it!!) and my 1000 eats it for lunch until 175 and then my haybusa starts to catch up and pull away!!!

That guy asking about the hp problem with his 1000 you need to take that in and get it looked at sounds like a dead cylender or horrible injector timing either way that bike should kick you in the in first all the way till sixth and set your hair on fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! trust me it dose it to me and that is hard to say !

I just picked up an 04 Gixxer 1000 - I have gotten nowhere near top speed.... I have taken it up to 145 on a clear highway late at night and felt that I was just tapping into the juice.

Bike is phenomenal - blows away the CBR, ZX-10,11, FJR whatever.... and handles like a wet dream on rails.

Wheelies are out - no thanks - pass - dumb ass

Take a look at youtube.com for gsxr crashes and u will hold off on wheelies too....

Love my bike baby!

It’s a brilliant bike but i still prefer the 1996 Yamaha genesis,having said that I have always prefered the older bikes.

  (6021) posted on 12.4.2006

02’ gsxr 1000, 196mph with just a slip-on yosh pipe...... 133mph wheelies at 12.5k God Bless The GSXR!!!

  (6021) posted on 11.23.2006

Hey Josh, can we kiss your ring? Wow, you are the best. Such an honor to hear from the best rider on the planet.

  (6021) posted on 11.13.2006

To the moron who thinks wheelies are an indication of riding skill: I have never done more than a power wheelie in first gear and I ride a ’99 R1. Not because I can’t afford better but because I feel I haven’t reached the limits of what this bike can do and see no reason to upgrade.

Every two weeks, I replace my sliders on my suit and I ride with the fastest three people in Cyprus. If you want to see a clip of what real riding skill looks like, take a look at a video we made last week: http://www.youtube.com /watch?v=1pfy6P0-Rpw

Stop being such a prick and trashing people who can’t wheelie. It’s not your place to discourage people when you show no evidence of your own skill.

It’s likely there are many people who would own your on the street or track but prefer not to crack their frame or blow out their Ohlins fork seals doing wheelies. Maybe you should replace that square rear tire of yours and then go check out a riding school.

Thanks for coming out,

  (6021) posted on 10.21.2006

you need to learn how to ride if you cant wheelie 1000. I dont care what year the bike is

  (6021) posted on 10.16.2006

I’ve seen 172 in 5th gear and also 156 in 3rd - her engine was spinning at about 14k and was still climbing. As far as wheelies, I’ve been able to stand the bike up at 90 mph in second gear only using the throttle and no clutch.
