New 999cc four-cyclinder powerplant is modified to deliver extraordinary acceleration matched by maximum top-end performance of world-class racetrack performance.
Race-proven designs include high-quality titanium valves, forged pistons, shot-peened conrods and large intake and exhaust valves.
New 4-2-1 exhaust system is significantly lighter, contributing to improved agility and handling. It is also increased mid-range engine power output further improving acceleration out of the corners.
Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) servo-controlled butterfly valve in the exhaust pipe helps to maximize torque throughout the rev range in diverse running conditions by optimizing the exhaust-system back-pressure in accordance with the engine speed, throttle position, and gear posistion.
An Engine Control Module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has newly optimized settings to maximize the benefits of the new 4-2-1 exhaust system and other engine refinements.
Suzuki Ram Air-Direct (SRAD) air intakes are positioned close to the centerline of the fairing to provide optimum intake efficiency. The intake-duct openings feature a louvered design that heightens intake efficiency, while also contributing to weight reduction.
The back torque-limiting clutch incorporates the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) for light clutch pull and optimum clutch performance. The back-torque limiter offers smoother downshifting, and thereby lets the rider take full advantage of engine output during deceleration.
The footpegs can be adjusted to any of three positions in a 14mm horizontal and vertical range. The rear brake pedal and master cylinder move with the right footpeg assembly, and the shift-lever linkage can be adjusted to accomodate changes in the position of the left footpeg.
Lightweight 43mm Showa Big Piston Front forks (BPF) are refined to match the GSX-R1000′s reduced weight. Their design offers more effective valving, with more controlled compression to deliver better feedback to the rider and enhance the rider’s ability to make line corrections while cornering.
Electronically controlled steering damper contributes to handling stability and a more alert and agile feel by increasing the damping force at higher speeds and reducing it at lower speeds
New 5mm front brake discs made of heat-resistant stainless steel work together with new top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo monobloc caliper
