The secret to the GSX-R1000’s legendary performance is an unrivaled combination of awesome power and precision handling. Its powerplant features cutting-edge designs like lightweight, forged pistons designed using Finite Element Method analysis, helping it provide incredible acceleration out of corners, matched by stunning top-end performance. Its chassis is designed for optimum rigidity, providing responsive steering and rock-solid stability even through wide-open sweepers.
Suzuki GSX-R 1000 2016 Features
Engine Features Potent 999cc, 4-cylinder powerplant, with a bore and stroke of 74.5 x 57.3mm brings enhanced throttle response across the entire RPM range plus a true potential for racetrack dominance.
The compact engine enables short wheelbase with a long swingarm to create racetrack-capable handling characteristics.
Lightweight, durable forged pistons are designed using the same Finite Element Method (FEM) and fatigue analysis technology used for MotoGP racing engines.
Pentagonal shaped ventilation holes in the sides of each cylinder bore reduce pumping losses due to internal crankcase air-pressure resistance to downward piston movement.
The camshaft profiles were developed using proven MotoGP racing engine technology to produce power delivery capable of racetrack performance.
Carefully shaped combustion chambers and a compression ratio of 12.9:1 creates strong low-range and mid-range performance to create a broad torque curve.
Iridium spark plugs produce more complete combustion and last longer than conventional plugs.
An Engine Control Module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has enhanced settings to suit the single muffler, resulting in better fuel economy and linear throttle response.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of three performance settings to suit riding conditions and personal tastes. The switch is located on the left handlebar control module.
The 4-2-1 exhaust system carries a Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) valve to maximize torque and improve throttle response, especially in the low-to-mid RPM range.
Race-proven back-torque-limiting clutch contributes to smoother downshifting and corner entry.
Large, efficient radiator with a curved shape developed on factory team racebikes and a trapezoidal engine oil cooler shed heat while reducing drag.
Chassis Features SHOWA Big Piston front forks (BPF) with an endurance-race-proven lightweight design that delivers superb feedback and response. Spring preload, rebound and compression damping are all fully adjustable.
Single, link-style rear shock absorber features adjustable rebound damping, spring preload, and both high-speed and low-speed compression damping.
The dual front disc brakes are equipped with the premier, radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers grasping 310mm floating brake rotors.
The rear brake system with single-piston caliper contributes low unsprung weight.
Electronically controlled steering damper provides lighter steering at slower speeds and more damping force at racetrack and highway speeds.
Three-way adjustable footpegs, adjustable shift lever and short fuel tank help compose a comfortable riding position.
Instruments include a silver-ringed analog tachometer with LCD speedometer. LCD readouts include odometer, dual trip meter, 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.
The edgy and clean GSX-R race-inspired styling incorporates fairing and bodywork details aimed at reducing turbulence and drag.
Distinctive multi-reflector headlight with vertically stacked high and low-beam halogen bulbs is centered between position lights on each side.
Bright, durable LED taillight, with clear inner lens and red outer lens.
The front turn signal are integrated into the rear-view mirrors while the rear tail section houses the rear signals.
Attention to rider comfort and confidence includes a carefully shaped seat with a high-grip cover.
The wheel rims have pin stripes punctuated by “R” logos that highlight the bike’s identity.
