Suzuki is back and substantially more engaged in the redirection with its new GSX-R1000 for 2017. Suzuki's commitment to MotoGP and Superbike hustling takes after the old conditions for Suzuki's dedicated group of riders around the globe.

The Japanese company releases three models, GSX-R1000, GSX-R1000 ABS, and a GSX-R1000R ABS which highlights an all-new cruiser motor and suspension. A huge part of the development found in this sixth generation GSX-R1000 that the company gathered from the race track concept.

The Suzuki GSX-R1000 was designed to regain the "King of the Sportbikes" crown. It has a stronger aluminum twin spar frame, which is ten percent lighter and compact. It also runs with premium Showa BPF fork and rear shock, Brembo monobloc calipers and T-drive rotors, and a large full LCD display.

The superbike has an improved 999.8 cc liquid-cooled DOHC inline-four cylinder engine, which produces outstandingly high top-end power without sacrificing low to mid-range power. It is equipped with a Variable Valve Timing (VVT) system and Ride-by-Wire Throttle Bodies.

It runs on advanced electronics, includes an Inertia Measurement Unit (IMU), Suzuki traction control, and S-DMS adjustable power output. These improved features help increase racetrack and street performance. The updated features optimized rigidity for nimble handling and a high level of grip.

The Suzuki GSX-R1000 has an advanced suspension, which controls from its SHOWA BPF fork and rear shock. The combined suspension offers a new BREMBO T-drive 320mm dual front brake rotors and Monobloc 4-piston calipers for exceptional handling and stopping performance.

It also features sleek and stylish aerodynamic bodywork. The superbike's housing has a new, bright LED headlight and Suzuki Ram Air Direct (SRAD) ducts, which feed a high volume of intake air for amazing top speed muscle.

The Suzuki GSX-R1000 has 32-bit Dual Processor Engine Control Module (ECM), which mixes Suzuki's inconceivable road running EFI learning with the knowledge from Suzuki's race-winning MotoGP program. The short stroke motor has a 76.0 mm bore versus a 55.1mm stroke, yet is smaller than the earlier generation of GSX-R1000. However, it gives an excellent account of great superbike outline.
