OVERVIEW

The secret to the 2016 GSX-R1000’s legendary performance is an unrivaled combination of awesome power and precision handling. Its powerplant features cutting-edge designs like lightweight, forged pistons designed using Finite Element Method analysis, helping it provide incredible acceleration out of corners, matched by stunning top-end performance. Its chassis is designed for optimum rigidity, providing responsive steering and rock-solid stability even through wide-open sweepers.

FEATURES

EVOLUTION

999cm3 4-cylinder powerplant, with Bore x stroke of 74.5mm x 57.3mm brings enhanced throttle response across the entire rpm range and high potential for racetrack performance.

CUTTING-EDGE DIGITAL ENGINE MANAGEMENT

The Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) system has two butterfly valves (primary and secondary) in each throttle-body barrel. The primary valve is controlled by the rider via the twist grip, and the secondary valve is controlled by the ECM. As the rider opens and closes the primary valve, the ECM reads the throttle position, engine speed, and gear position and incrementally adjusts the secondary valve to maximise the intake-charge velocity. The ECM thereby enhances combustion efficiency, makes throttle response more linear, and improves low-end and mid-range torque.

THREE RIDER SELECTABLE

The unique Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system allows the rider to select from three fuel-injection and ignition-system maps, thereby adjusting power delivery to suit personal preferences. The "A" setting yields sharp throttle response throughout the throttle-opening range to realize maximal power delivery. The “B” setting yields relatively soft throttle response up to the middle of the throttle-opening range. The "C" setting yields relatively soft throttle response throughout the throttle-opening range by reducing engine power.

COMPLETE INSTRUMENTATION

The proven instrument-cluster design includes LCD indications for the speedometer, an odometer, dual trip meters, a reserve trip meter, a clock, the coolant temperature, the oil-pressure, a gear-position indicator, a laptimer/stopwatch, an S-DMS indicator, and a bar graph showing the brightness of the instrument illumination. There are four LEDs for a programmable engine speed indication system. There are also LEDs for fuel injection, low fuel, neutral, high beam, coolant temperature/oil pressure, and turn signals. An LED that shows immobilizer activation is also included where relevant. The right handlebar control module incorporates a speedometer display mode switch that can be used to trigger the laptimer/stopwatch.

ADVANCED SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGIES

Lightweight, fully adjustable 43mm Showa Big Piston Front forks (BPF) with an endurance-race-proven design deliver superb feedback and responsive, stable operation, and are lightweight. The Rear shock absorber features adjustable rebound damping, spring preload, and both high-speed and low-speed compression damping allowing adjustability for a wide range of conditions.

BREMBO MONOBLOC CALIPERS WITH ABS

The twin 310mm front disc brakes are equipped with top-of-the-line radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers. The monobloc calipers are lighter and more rigid than conventional bolt-together calipers and give better feedback to the rider. An Antilock Brake System (ABS) enhances brake performance as the system monitors wheels speeds to match stopping power to available traction.

CONTROL IS POWER

The chassis retains the basic elements that have contributed to the GSX-R1000 legend: A twin-spar frame that’s welded together using just five cast aluminium-alloy sections. An aluminium-alloy swingarm that’s welded together using just three castings and is arched to allow the muffler to be tucked in tightly. A short wheelbase for nimble handling on the racetrack. And a long swingarm that enhances traction and acceleration out of racetrack corners while resistingrear suspension squat.

ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED STEERING DAMPER

An electronically controlled steering damper uses the ECM to monitor motorcycle speed and adjusts itself for lighter steering at slower speeds, and delivers more damping force at racetrack and highway speeds.
