Suzuki India has opened its booking register for completely updated superbike- GSX-R1000. There are 2 versions of this superbike, the standard GSX-R1000 and the edgier GSX-R1000R. Both of them will be offered to the Indian bikers. The pricing of the motorcycle is still not officially out, but we expect it start at around Rs 19 lakh for the standard version and go upto Rs 22 lakh for the R variant. The dealers are promising that the deliveries will start by June. The booking can be made by depositing Rs 2-3 lakh depending on the dealership you choose.
The 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 is a completely new superbike that is built to rule the currently available crop of superbikes. The highlight of the bike is said to be the Moto-GP derived technology called variable valve timing that makes the engine perform at a vast range of rpms. This technology promises strong midrange along with the top-end punch.
The bike will be kitted with all the latest electronic rider aids like ABS, Traction control, rider modes, bi-directional quick shifter, and launch control. Additionally, these systems are interlinked with each other via six direction/three-axis IMU (Inertia management unit) so that they work seamlessly with each other.
Stopping power on both the GSX-R variants comes from Brembo 4-pot calliper twin-disc setup at the front and a Nissin calliper with a single disc at the rear. What differentiates the GSX-R1000R from the GSX-R1000 is an addition of Showa Balance Free Fork (BFF) and BFF-Lite rear monoshock. Watch the official video-
