IT has been three decades since the GSX-R line was born in a Suzuki factory, and a decade and a half since the first GSX-R1000 (K1) changed the open sports bike market forever.
Now, the 6th-generation GSX-R1000 is redefining the definition of “Super bike”, with the top-spec GSX-R1000R equipped with the latest SHOWA BFF (Balance Free Front) forks and SHOWA BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion lite) rear shock, a bi-directional quick shifter, racing launch control and LED position lights.
Riders will also find a lightweight battery and a unique black LCD instrument panel display, designed to let you know you’re sitting aboard something truly special. Officially launched on to the Australian market today (7 September), the GSX-R1000R will hit the road at $27,490 (ride away).
Available in two colour schemes Metallic Triton Blue and Glass Sparkle Black, the GSX-R1000R will be joined in show rooms by the GSX-R1000 ABS, which comes in three striking colour schemes –Metallic Triton Blue, Metallic Matte Black No. 2 and Pearl Mira Red. It hits the road at $23,990 (ride away).
