The Japanese organization, Suzuki, is back and significantly more focused in the diversion with their all-new GSX-R1000 for 2017. Suzuki's dedication to MotoGP and Superbike racing resembles the old circumstances for Suzuki's loyal team of riders around the world.

The three models that will be available for this year includes, GSX-R1000, GSX-R1000 ABS, and a GSX-R1000R ABS which highlights an all-new motorcycle engine and suspension. A significant part of the innovation found in this 6th gen GSX-R1000 that they collected from the race track.

The sleek bodywork demonstrates similarities to the racer, and the said new engine is repositioned inside the reconfigured case to enhance handling and rider feedback into the corners. The suspension for the R model is from Showa's Balance Free Rear Cushion loop over shock absorber that has an outer oil damping circuit. Suzuki claims this plan secludes the damping oil from the impact of different weight, giving more positive input to the rider.

The company's standard GSX-R1000/ABS uses Showa's Big Piston Front fork that placed the springs inside the fork goes down so they can be submerged in oil, decreasing oil frothing for enhanced damping. The 1000's back Showa shock has new dynamic linkage. Spring preload and damping have an external modification. Bigger front brake rotors fuse another hybrid mounting framework to create larger contact space between the inner plate transporter and the rotor itself. The back brake stays unaltered from 2016.

While removal has mostly stayed the same which is 999.8cc for 2017 versus 999.1cc for 2016, bore and stroke have changed evidently. The old 74.5 x 57.3mm measurements are replaced with manufacture's pistons that involve bore and stroke range of 76.0 x 55.1mm, with pressure proportion knock from 12.9:1 to 13.2:1. Suzuki claims crest horsepower and torque have enhanced, with redline hopping from 13,500 rpm to 14,500 rpm. Meanwhile, the color and pricing for the GSX-R1000, GSX-R1000 ABS, and GSX-R1000R are TBD, with the GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R arriving in dealerships on May 2017 and the GSX-R1000 ABS will come in June 2017.
