GSX R1000 Expert Review
The 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 is available in two variants - standard and GSX-R1000R. The Suzuki GSX-R1000 has been priced at Rs 19 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It will compete against the Yamaha R1, Honda CBR1000RR, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, Ducati 1299 Panigale, Aprilia RSV-4 and the BMW S1000RR. The Suzuki GSX-R1000R carries a price tag of Rs 22 lakh while the base version retails for Rs 19 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). Booking for both the motorcycles had already commenced for Rs 1 to Rs 3 lakh depending on the city. Powering the new motorcycle is a 999.8cc liquid-cooled, in-line four engine delivering 202PS of power and 117.6Nm of torque.

The benefit of VVT is that it offers the rider good mid-range performance along with an extra zing in the top end of the power band. Another chink in the armour of the older bike was its lack of electronic wizardry. Suzuki engineers have loaded the new GSX-R1000R with three ride modes, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), 10-level traction control, cornering ABS while launch control and a bidirectional quickshifter (only the Suzuki GSXR-1000R gets the last three features). The R version rides on Show BFF (Balance Free Front) and the base version gets lower spec Showa BPF (Big Piston Front). The brakes are now larger 320mm dia twin Brembo disc brake at front and Nissin 220mm dia disc brake at the back.
