The most powerful GSX-R ever

The compact 999.8cm³ liquid- cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, inline- four engine is designed with a high level of top-end performance plus strong low- to mid-range power.

The short-stroke engine features a 76.0mm bore versus a 55.1mm stroke, as well as a narrow profile thanks to effective design.

Technology adopted directly from racing development, the Suzuki Racing Finger Follower valve train weighs less than a tappet-style valve train for reduced friction and increased valve response at higher engine speeds.

Four titanium valves — two 31.5mm intake and two 24mm exhaust valves — are used in each cylinder. The lighter valves respond well to the finger follower’s arms and permit a 14,500 rpm redline that helps produce very high peak horsepower.



More about this product

  • Broad Power System

    Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT), Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A) and Suzuki Top Feed Injector (S-TFI) systems combine to make the Broad Power System resulting in strong, linear power and enhanced acceleration throughout the rpm range.

  • Suzuki Racing Variable Valve Timing System (SR-VVT)

    The exclusive Suzuki Racing Variable Valve Timing System (SR-VVT) uses a centrifugal actuated mechanism on the intake camshaft sprocket to increase high engine rpm power without losing low- to mid-range power.

  • Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET)

    The Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system valve in the mid-pipe helps control back pressure and flow to the muffler to widen power delivery and reduce exhaust sounds without needing a larger silencer.

  • Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A)

    Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A) butterfly valves positioned in the balance tubes between the two outer and the two inner head pipes open at higher engine speeds and close at lower rpm to help the engine create high peak power without losing low- and mid-range horsepower.

  • Suzuki Top Feed Injectors (S-TFI)

    Complementing the four primary fuel injectors in the throttle bodies are four Suzuki Top Feed Injectors (S-TFI) that spray fuel from the top of the airbox directly into the intake funnels. This results in higher peak power, more efficient combustion, and a higher level of fueling control.

  • Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)

    Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)–coated cylinders are integrated into the upper crankcase to reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.
    The high 13.2:1 compression ratio helps produce high horsepower. The cylinder head’s shallow combustion chamber minimizes heat produced during operation.

  • Suzuki Ram Air Direct (SRAD)

    A pair of Suzuki Ram Air Direct (SRAD) intake ducts are used to exponentially increase the volumetric flow of air amount coming in the airbox as road speed increases.

  • Ride-by-wire fuel injection

    The electronic fuel injection system uses Suzuki’s ride-by-wire electronic throttle bodies, which use a servo motor to control the throttle valves for fast response to rider throttle grip input while delivering precise and smooth power.


The cassette-style, 6-speed transmission lets riders precisely match the gear ratio to the riding condition. A cassette-style transmission can be easily removed from the crankcase as an assembly with the engine still in the frame, facilitating quicker race track gear changes and simplified service.

Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS)

The GSX-R1000 is equipped with the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) multi-plate, wet clutch. SCAS works like a slipper clutch during downshifts while increasing clamping pressure on the plates during acceleration. This smooths engine braking and lightens the clutch lever pull.

Drive chain

To reduce moving mass, a 525-size drive chain is used with a 45/17 final sprocket ratio that complements the large rear tire dimensions.

Body Color

Metallic Matt Black/Glass Sparkle Black

Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.)

The advanced electronic control systems of the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) help you optimize performance characteristics to match your changing riding needs and preferences, both on the street and the track. These include the Bi-directional Quick Shift System, Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System*), Motion Track Brake System, and Ride-by- Wire Electronic Throttle System.

Supporting S.I.R.S. is a compact 6-direction, 3-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) that constantly monitors pitch, roll, and yaw movement to help provide more precise and effective traction, braking and cornering.

Inertial Measurement Unit

Using racing know-how, Suzuki has equipped the GSX-R1000 with an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit). The IMU provides 6-axis motion and position information to the ECM so instantaneous adjustments can be made electronically to the engine and chassis components that influence performance.

The ride-by-wire electronic throttle bodies are precisely opened by the ECM to match the throttle grip rotation of the rider’s hand and electronic systems that use input from the IMU. The result is strong, seamless engine power delivery from idle to redline.

Motion Track Traction Control System

The exclusive 10-mode Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System)*, which uses input from the IMU, increases rider confidence by allowing adjustments to the amount of intervention to match riding ability and surface conditions.

  • Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System)*,

    The exclusive 10-mode Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System)*, which uses input from the IMU, increases rider confidence by allowing adjustments to the amount of intervention to match riding ability and surface conditions.

  • Motion Track Brake System

    Exclusive to Suzuki, the Motion Track Brake System brings additional control to antilock braking. Like a conventional ABS** system, the Motion Track Brake System provides the appropriate amount of braking force for the available traction. When the IMU detects the rear wheel lifting up from extreme braking forces, the ABS control module will adjust the front brake pressure to reduce rear wheel lift.

  • Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS)

    The 3-mode Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) system lets the rider set the engine’s power delivery characteristics to match riding ability and conditions.

  • Bi-directional Quick Shift System

    The Suzuki Bi-directional Quick Shift System lets racers shift faster than ever before. The system adjusts ignition timing on upshifts and electronic throttle body action on downshifts to enable clutchless shifting that helps deliver faster and more consistent lap times.

Easy Start System

The Suzuki Easy Start System simplifies startup for the GSX- R1000 rider as the ECM automatically cranks the engine for 1.5 seconds (or until it starts) with a momentary press of the starter button. The digital ignition fires iridium- type spark plugs that increase spark strength and combustion efficiency.

RPM Assist

Suzuki’s innovative Low RPM Assist function smooths standing starts and reduces the chance of the rider stalling the motorcycle.


Using chassis development technology from Suzuki’s racing experience, the engine angle of the GSX-R1000 was rotated backward six degrees. This produced the joint effect of reducing the distance of the forks to the center of the chassis by 20mm and lengthening the swingarm length by 40mm, which in turn increases chassis stability and improves aerodynamics.

Lighter Aluminium Frame

Suzuki engineers designed a new twin-spar aluminium perimeter frame that’s 20mm narrower at the widest point between the spars and weighs 10% less than previous.

Racing inspired swingarm

An aluminium swingarm is braced on both sides instead of on one, to improve weight and rigidity balance. It’s also 25mm longer from the pivot shaft to the rear-most axle position, improving cornering feel on the racetrack.

Adjustable front and rear suspension

Racetrack-developed links connect the single SHOWA Remote Reservoir Shock Absorber to the braced swingarm. With spring preload, rebound damping, plus high- and low-speed compression damping force adjustment, the rider can tune the motorcycle to respond to riding style and weight.

Superb suspension action is delivered by the fully adjustable SHOWA Big Piston Forks (BPF), which are renowned for damping force control that maintains front tire contact with the surface so the rider gets good sensory feedback while riding at a variety of speeds.

Strong Brembo braking performance

Brembo radial mount brake calipers provide the rider with strong braking performance combined with superb feel.

Brembo T-drive Brake Rotors feature two methods of attaching the 320mm floating disc to the carrier. There are five conventional floating rotor spools that maintain the rotor’s relationship to the caliper and five new-design T-drive fasteners. This combined attachment technique allows the rotor to absorb more energy, so a high degree of braking force is available to the GSX-R1000 rider.

Lightweight aluminium wheels

Exclusive to Suzuki, the lightweight 6-spoke cast aluminium wheels reduce unsprung mass and have been designed to handle the braking and drive forces that a GSX-R1000 can create.
The wheel rims have pinstripes punctuated by “R” logos that highlight the bike’s identity.
