An Invitation To Own The Racetrack
All-new Suzuki GSX-R1000 2009. With a more powerful, cleaner-running engine. A more nimble chassis and more responsive suspension. In a more compact and lighter package. Wrapped with an edgy new look. All delivering a renewed invitation for riders worldwide: Own The Racetrack.
Suzuki GSX-R1000 2009 Features
999cm3 4-cylinder powerplant, designed lighter and 59.7mm shorter from front to rear, brings enhanced throttle response across the entire rpm range and high potential for racetrack performance.
The new compact engine enabled 10mm shorter wheelbase and 32mm longer swingarm to improve racetrack performance. New, more over-square bore x stroke of 74.5mm x 57.3mm (changed from 73.4mm x 59.0mm) gives the engine better overall tuning potential. The compression ratio is now 12.8:1, changed from 12.5:1.
The engine employs enlarged titanium valves in diameter, forged pistons, shot-peened conrods.
Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)-plated cylinders integrated into the crankcase, reducing friction and improving heat transfer, durability and ring seal. 12-hole fuel injectors produce a finer fuel mist for more complete combustion, reducing fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of three performance settings to suit riding conditions and personal tastes. Now the switch is relocated on the left handlebar control module. Iridium spark plugs produce a stronger spark for better combustion.
Large, efficient radiator with a trapezoidal shape developed on factory team racebikes and a trapezoidal engine oil cooler both help reduce drag.
Cable-operated back-torque-limiting clutch makes for efficient clutch operation with superb feel.
Unique Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) uses an under-engine chamber and low-slung, large-volume MotoGP-inspired titanium mufflers.
Twin-spar cradle frame made of five cast sections, mated with an arched swingarm made of three castings and one-piece die-cast rear subframe.
Big Piston Frontforks (BPF) with an endurance-race-proven design deliver superb feedback and responsive, stable operation, and are lightweight.
Rear shock absorber features adjustable rebound damping, spring preload, and both high-speed and low-speed compression damping.
Front brakes with fully floating 310mm discs and rigid, lightweight race-proven monoblock aluminum casting alloy radial-mount calipers.
The edgy and clean Suzuki GSX-R1000 2009 styling incorporates fairing and bodywork details aimed at reducing turbulence and drag.
Attention to rider comfort includes a carefully shaped seat and adjustable footpegs.
Tailsection cover included for solo rides or track days. Sculpted fuel tank is lighter, while capacity remains 17.5 liters (4.6 US gal).
New look multi-reflector headlight with vertically stacked high and low-beam halogen bulbs centered between position lights on each side.
For Europe, the position lights each have layered lenses with blue coloring on the inside lens for an even sportier look.
Front and rear turn signals feature clear lenses over amber bulbs.
Instruments include a silver-ringed analog tachometer with LCD speedometer. LCD readouts include odometer, dual trip meters, reserve trip meter, clock, coolant temperature/oil pressure warning indicator, gear position indicator, lap timer/stopwatch, S-DMS setting indicator and bar-graph indicating the instrument lighting level, or brightness.
