SUZUKI SHOWS NEW COLOURS FOR GSX-R1000R AND GSX-R1000

Back to news

Suzuki has shown its new colour options for the 2018 GSX-R1000R, with the award-winning superbike available both in an eye-catching white and stealthy black version of the firm’s MotoGP-inspired livery. The GSX-R1000 is also available in the same white paint scheme as the GSX-R1000R, as well as a matt black for 2018, with blue accents and wheels.

 

In the hands of Michael Dunlop, the new GSX-R1000 - which is not only visually inspired by the GSX-RR, but benefits from engine and chassis technology taken directly from the prototype racer - won the blue riband Senior TT on the Isle of Man, while his teammate in the Hawk Racing stable, Richard Cooper, raced to nine victories in the National Superstock 1000 class. In Superbike trim, it won this year’s MotoAmerica title and the Australian Superbike championship.

The GSX-R1000R gets an inertial measurement unit-controlled traction control system with 10 settings, plus cornering ABS, launch control, a bidirectional quickshifter and auto-blipper, plus Showa’s race-proven balance free suspension.

The GSX-R1000R comes with an RRP of £16,099, while the GSX-R1000 is available for £13,599. Both will be on display on the Suzuki stand at Motorcycle Live, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham, and opens its doors on Saturday 18 November.
