Back in the year 1979-1980, Wes Cooley won the American Superbike Championship in a Suzuki GS1000, the AMA Superbike Championship. As a result, Yoshimura launched a special model to honor the victories of Wes Cooley , the Suzuki GS1000S.
A few years have passed since then, but it has not been forgotten. Especially for a builder named William Kenefick , owner of RetroSBK and who has created the equivalence of what would be the Suzuki GS1000S of those days, but in this current era.
Based on a Suzuki GSX-R 1000 2008, it has been mounted in tribute to the Yoshimura factory in the United States and they promoted the start of so many speed races on the continent.
There is not much information yet, but enough to understand the more than 100 hours that have been thrown on this bike: the colin, tank and chassis are of the Suzuki GSX-R 1000 2008; a complete set of Yoshimura exhausts, various carbon fiber parts and, of course, that 70’s style fairing manufactured exclusively for her.
Ohlins rear suspension, readjustments on the front forks and Brembo calipers to adjust the bike to a more racing driving. Some 180CV of power and a unique retro look.
