Suzuki claims that the 2017 GSX-R1000 is built completely from scratch

Suzuki has unveiled the upcoming GSX-R1000 at the 2015 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan and even though the company says that this is still a prototype, it is quite confirmed that the bike will be launched towards the middle of 2017. The new GSX-R1000 has been built right from scratch and the Japanese company claims that it is the hardest accelerating, most powerful and cleanest running GSX-R ever built.

Exact and detailed technical specifications of the bike haven’t been revealed but the GSX-R1000 will be powered by an all-new 999cc in-line, four-cylinder engine. The bike also comes with features like a 10-level traction control, ride-by-wire throttle, quick-shifter, launch control and ABS. The quick-shifter is used to upshift and downshift gears without using the clutch or blipping the throttle.

The brand new 999cc engine also uses variable valve timing (VVT) to churn out an increase in top-end power without losing out on low-end or mid-range performance. The GSX-R1000 also gets stationary injectors in the top of the air box that operate at high RPM levels while the exhaust gets servo-operated butterfly valves in them which open up at high RPMs.

The 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 comes with a Showa Balance Free fork and shock which is lighter than the old one and it has been developed for racing, meaning that it offers more consistent damping. The bike comes with LED lights at the front and rear and the overall styling is inspired by MotoGP. The 2017 GSX-R1000 sure looks sporty and aggressive and this blue colour scheme looks very pleasant too. It seems Suzuki really wants to take the throne away from the Yamaha R1 and Ducati 1299 Panigale.
