Yoshimura is considered by many riders a leader when it comes to motorcycle tuning. This is the reason why, Suzuki choose to work with them and announced a range of limited editions of its black GSX-R750 equipped with Yoshimura and genuine Suzuki accessories.
The Limited Edition GSX-R features a fairly distinctive style and is sure to turn heads every time it passes down the street. Each Yoshimura Limited Edition GSX-R is available with a high quality, custom painted Black/Grey color scheme.
The bikes are available in only 25 units and are fitted with performance exhausts, bronze alloys, Yoshimura oil filter plug, case saver kit, steering stem nut and timing inspection cap. You also get black Yoshimura bar end weights and rear paddock stand bobbins.
As far as genuine Suzuki accessories are concerned, the bikes are fitted with rear seat cover, a double bubble screen, tank protector and fuel cap trim.
The Limited Editions cost just £800 more than the standard models and their custom parts worth over £1200, so it sounds like a pretty good deal to us. Moreover, thanks to a special offer from Suzuki, you can have to bike to the same price as the stock model as Paul de Lusignan, Suzuki General Manager said“Add in our current £800 cash back offer, and the faster responders will ride a very special GSX-R750 away for the same price as a standard model.”
Suzuki’s GSX-R series hold a special place in the hearts of riders for being the kind of bike that offers sporty good looks with outstanding engine performance and crisp handling. It’s an ideal bike for any kind of activity, with a versatility that’s virtually unmatched in the industry.
The technical specs of the 2012 model remain largely the same, which can really be looked at in either a glass half-full or half-empty way depending on which side of the fence you’re on. While others might scoff at the relative lack of improvements from its predecessors, others continue to laud the GSX-R series for continuing its tradition as one of the best all-around bikes on the market.
For the latter, the GSX-R750’s 750cc, four-cylinder engine is the stuff where excitement is born. It comes with a race-proven oversquare bore/stroke ratio that provides exceptionally potent, high-revving performance while maximizing torque and improving throttle response, especially in the low-to-mid RPM range. The bike’s powetrain set-up also makes use of forged pistons, shot-peened conrods, a chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes for outstanding engine performance.
A far as handling is concerned, the Suzuki GSX-R750 was given a lightweight and compact twin-spar aluminum cradle frame that’s made out of five cast sections and features a cast swingarm. An electronically controlled steering damper provides lighter steering at lower speeds and more damping force at racetrack and highway speeds. On the flip side, handling also plays a huge part in ensuring that the GSX-R50 stays in the best possible shape, getting equipped with front brakes that feature fully floating 310mm discs and radial-mounted, four-piston Brembo monoblock calipers.

When you’re in the market for a bike that comes with a world-class racing pedigree, you can’t do a whole lot better than the Suzuki GSX-R600. As a bike that has blazed its way to the AMA Pro Daytona SportBike Championship and the overall AMA Pro SuperSport Championship, the GSX-R600 is truly in a class all its own.
Compact and powerful, the GSX-R600 is a clear demonstration of Suzuki’s highly-advanced and race-proven technology of the GSX-R line. The crown jewel of the bike is its 599cc, 4-cyclinder engine, that comes with a race-proven oversquare bore/stroke ratio engineered for an exceptional high-revving performance. It’s got shot-peened con rods, a chrome-nitride-coated upper compression and oil control rings, and pentagonal ventilation holes that ensure the bike has the kind of efficient performance befitting its name and stature in the industry. The GSX-R600 also has new camshaft profiles that feature an aggressive valve-lift curve and a 4-into-1 stainless-steel exhaust system with a titanium muffler, maximizing torque and improving throttle response, especially in the low-to-mid RPM range. The whole engine technology, particularly the Suzuki Dual Throtle Valve System, gives the rider free reign to enjoy the insanely powerful characteristics of the GSX-R600.
Handling is also a prime trait of the GSX-R600, thanks in large part to a race-developed, lightweight Showa Big Piston front-Fork that delivers superior feedback and consistent performance. Likewise, a single Showa rear shock features externally adjustable rebound and compression damping, along with adjustable ride height, making for a bike that truly has the whole package - and then some.

For those that can’t handle the all-world capabilities of the Suzuki Hayabusa, you can always find solace in a bike like the Suzuki GSX-R1000. It’s not as powerful as the almighty Hayabusa, but it comes pretty darn close.
The 2012 GSX-R1000 was built with an eye towards designing a super bike that can make the competition wince. With the kind of history Suzuki has with these machines, it wasn’t all that surprising that they’ve built a bike its customers will be very proud of.
Not only does the GSX-R1000 come with a new style and bodywork, but the bike also gets the benefit of a new chassis and suspension set-up that can support bikers during their high-speed excursions out on the the track.
Among the aesthetic features that have been built into the GSX-R1000 include a new high-grip leather seat that features outstanding holding properties, providing the rider with a greater sense of stability when accelerating. New front and rear tires have also been fitted with improved tread patterns and the front tire is 200 grams lighter, contributing to lower unsprung weight and sharper handling.
At the heart of the GSX-R1000 is a 999cc four-cyclinder engine that has been modified to deliver the kind of scintillating acceleration that few other top-end performance bikes are capable of replicating. The engine works hand-in-hand with a back torque-limiting clutch that incorporates the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) for light clutch pull and optimum clutch performance, resulting in smoother downshifting, and allows the rider to take full advantage of engine output during deceleration. The GSX-R1000 also has a new 4-2-1 exhaust system that’s significantly lighter than its predecessor, contributing to improved agility and handling of a bike whose power output is no laughing matter.

Suzuki’s GSX-R1000 became the fastest road racing Superbike on the planet earlier this month, as Relentless Suzuki by TAS racer, Bruce Anstey, recorded an astonishing 133.977mph average lap speed in the final race of the Ulster Grand Prix.
Riding in the prestigious event that uses the closed-off roads around Dundrod in Northern Ireland, Anstey bravely piloted the GSX-R1000 around the 7.4 mile circuit, smashing the previous record in front of a 30,000 strong-crowd.
Talking about his amazing lap record, London-based Kiwi, Bruce, said,"I knew the Relentless Suzuki by TAS GSX-R1000 was fast, but even I didn’t think we could go this quickly. We finished second in the opening race which was a little disappointing, so I got my head down in the final Superbike race and pushed as hard as I could. It was a close battle, but we took the win and proved that the GSX-R1000 is the fastest, which is especially nice during the 25th anniversary year".
Mulholland a.k.a. The Snake seems to have a bad relation with motorcycles in general and GSX-Rs in particular as the highway’s often challenging curves happen to throw off the seats even the most experienced riders. We’re not sure if that’s the case with the next two examples that we came across, but they’re enough to make a point. The first rider lowsides and the second highsides, both while riding a Suzuki GSX-R on the same section of The Snake. Hit the jump to see the videos.
A couple of months ago we posted an official Suzuki video showing how their 1993 GSX-R750 came to life. While that was very interesting despite the age, imagine how exciting it is to see how today’s Suzuki GSX-R1000 superbike is born at the Japanese plant in Hamamatsu. The attached video takes us through the most important fabrication processes, allowing riders to understand just how brilliantly their bikes are being put together.
Suzuki carries on producing the GSX-R600 with little design tweaks and presents a new color range aimed at upgrading the bike’s exterior. This is the main 2010 strategy for the middleweight class (and not only) as manufacturers reunite with their drawing boards for future generation models.
By presenting the 2010 GSX-R 750, Suzuki gives a big slap on the necks of those who expected them to stop making this superbike. A motorcycle that was successfully produced for decades and has even inspired the introduction of the GSX-R 600 back in the early 1990s carries on as a unique presence on a continuously growing market, but, apparently, one in which competitors can’t see the effectiveness of the 750cc sport bike.
While the last Suzuki GSX-R 1000 model didn’t just feature some new color schemes and that was it – as Suzuki’s liter class model turned into a more compact, lighter, as well as a more powerful package in 2009 – the 2010 one carries on being produced without any technical or visual changes apart from the new color schemes. Furthermore, the Japanese manufacturer offers a 25th anniversary limited edition model to celebrate the fact that the Gixxer has been around for a quarter of a century and this might just be enough to keep it on the buyer’s map in 2010.
See how metal turns into motorcycle in a promotional video released by Suzuki in the early 1990s to show how their GSX-R 750 supersport motorcycle came to life. As you can suppose, the engine is their main focus, so if you incline towards engineering and often get your hands dirty yourself, this is the kind of video during which you drink your coffee and draw inspiration from. We sure like it and hope you do too.
In 2010, Suzuki celebrates 25 years of successfully producing the GSX-R series, so they have released a special edition GSX-R600 featuring a paintjob that is reminiscent of the 1999 factory World Superbike racing bike, but also a Yoshimura exhaust, top yoke plaque and an authenticity certificate.
Only 25 anniversary models will be made and they are destined for the Britain market at the price of £8799 ($13,283). The bike will be first seen in public at the Carole Nash MCN Scottish motorcycle show this weekend and reservations start on the 1st of April. For more information about the Suzuki GSX-R special edition and reservation process go to www.imgsx-r.com.
Last week we helped spread out the word that Suzuki was going to unveil a 25th anniversary GSX-R1000 limited edition model at the NEC Show in Birmingham to celebrate a quarter of a century since the first GSX-R model of the series was produced back in 1985. Meanwhile, Suzuki did more than keeping their promise. They have also revealed a limited edition version of the extremely popular GSX-R750 model with the same excuse in the back of their minds.
While the liter bike will sell in a number of 1000 units, its smaller sibling, the GSX-R750 (which is available only in Great Britain), will be even more exclusive as only 25 such motorcycles will be produced. But what will those who miss the chance to buy one lose? Technically nothing apart from the awesome-looking Yoshimura exhaust, but those who like the special color scheme replicating the 1996 blue/white one most likely don’t care about that. Each of the very special 25 Suzukis comes with a commemorative number on the top yoke and certificate.
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 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 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.

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!
The patient of the motorcycling dentist apparently wanted to combine pain with pleasure (which are close, but not that much) and things didn’t turned out in his favor. His stumble had the nurse and dentist take out the heavy artillery – a Suzuki GSX-R1000 – and the result is as satisfying as it is traumatic.
Suzuki Motor Corporation has announced the recall of 26,082 GSX-R1000 motorcycles made during 2005 and 2006 because of a frame problem. Apparently, the unit is susceptible to crack behind and below the steering neck near the front triple clamps if the bike is aggressively ridden. All recalled bikes will be fitted with a special brace that will reinforce the undamaged frames and will be covered by a five-year warranty which begins on the date of installation by the dealer. But if they detect any damage, the entire frame will be replaced with a reinforced unit in order to prevent the danger of cracking.
Are the GSX-R1000s dangerous for riders? Not in any special way! So why would Suzuki come up with such a measure? The answer is REPUTATION. Buyers of the specific model often happen to exploit their bikes beyond the machine’s capabilities or manufacturing purposes and this leads to the possible problem that Suzuki complies fixing in order to maintain their reputation.
In my opinion, riders who do wheelies and stoppies in such a manner that the frame gets damaged and implicit likely to crack won’t have a bike to send down the dealer and guess what? It isn’t the manufacturer’s fault!
Bikes and Babes…could you ask for more? Normally, the answer would have been a definite “No”. But that was until spotting a post on twowheelsblog in which this beautiful blonde girl shows off the beautiful way in which her mother made her. Ever since, our preferences changed into Suzuki and Blondes. Now that is one lethal combination!
I don’t understand a few things about this character and I don’t plan on trying to, but simply enumerate them”
First, I don’t understand why this guy would ride without a shirt, nor a helmet.
Secondly, I don’t understand why he even fights back as he is guilty as charge.
Thirdly, why would you go to court dressed like that and have the attitude that he has?
And finally, if you care that much about your bike, why trash it?
I know I said I won’t look for answers, but they simply pop up. So it’s either idiocy or the quest for audience, but most likely both.
P.S. I still can’t stop laughing.
Suzuki has just released the promo video of the 2009 GSX-R1000, their most powerful and most refined superbike product ever built.
With a new, more compact engine, shorter wheelbase and a totally new design, the GSX-R1000 raises once again the stake in the most disputed supersport class.
What is so great about this video is that it takes you through all the upgrades they’ve made on next year’s model so it is pretty much like reading a preview on the bike.
We’ve recently “admired” every girl’s idea of a BMW R 1200 GS and it included a lot of pink. Well guess what? Things don’t change a bit in the case of this Suzuki GSX-R K4. Even more, we know that this is no photoshop modified picture as it shows the bike in action on the track as ridden probably by a Barbie girl.
No reasons to get upset guys! Everybody does whatever they want with their bikes.
Having created a two-wheeled Department of Protective Security and Emergency, the authorities in Dubai thought that their six highly trained and specially chosen women officers must rely on some serious horsepower in order to follow up the Gulf region’s exotic cars often driven insanely crazy by rich guys. The response came in the form of black painted Suzuki GSX-R1000 patrol bikes and the fairly-slower Yamaha 1200.
Now, I don’t know how some people get that lucky, but considering my heavy hand/foot and by the looks on their faces, I reckon I don’t want to find out.
After seeing the video in which Yamaha presents the 2009 R1, it is good to know what the competition has to offer and Suzuki’s alternative is the GSX-R 1000 K9. This video is more of a disappointment in comparison with the one I linked with, but not the bike as Suzuki rode the winds of change pretty good lately, ending up among the favorites of its class.
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 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.

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!

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.

Stamford Superbike in the United Kingdom inspired of Chris Vermeulen’s Suzuki which he rode at the 2007 Australian MotoGP as a tribute to Barry Sheene and created a limited edition GSX-R1000 which has all the chances to be named the best looking GSX-R1000 of all times, or AT LEAST the one featuring the most beautiful paintjob.
If we already caught your attention and your eyes are now stuck on the pictures you should know that the company in the UK will sell the one of only six produced (...)
To the team of Suzuki engineers responsible for the GSX-R1000, Own The Racetrack is not just a slogan, it is a way of life. A life dedicated to making the most successful open-class motorcycle in the history of production-based racing even better. By applying the latest technology and the most recent hard-fought racing experience. And keeping the GSX-R1000 well ahead of the would-be competition.
A revised, compact combination of chassis and engine, fitted with advanced electronics, effective suspension and radial-mount brakes to not only make more power and accelerate harder but also to handle better, with the goal being a quicker lap time around a racetrack. Ignore the lights and mirrors and the fact that this is also the cleanest running four-cylinder 600cc motorcycle that Suzuki has ever built, and it is easy to imagine the GSX-R600 rolling directly out of a race shop.
The answer to the question can be found by looking at the pictures with this police special Suzuki GSX-R 750, a project that could easily become reality as the crowded streets are in more need of a quick response in a hazard situation.
Having its fairing removed, modified fuel tank, front and rear end together with the small final muffler, this motorcycle was transformed into a street fighter with a unique feature: it really is prepared to fight against everything that contradicts the (...)

Imagine you just purchased a brand new Suzuki GSX-R1000 motorcycle two months ago, and it was stolen right before your eyes as you were eating in your favorite restaurant. Not to worry, you are fully protected by the full coverage motorcycle insurance policy your motorcycle lender required you to get. Right?
In most cases, not exactly, if you look into the details of the motorcycle insurance policy you purchased. The reason is that most full coverage motorcycle insurance policies will (...)
