Review: Suzuki GSX-R 1000

The new Suzuki GSX-R1000 is equally by the look of factory escaped the track machine by the sum of technological innovations, which it enjoys today to continue to terrorize the racetracks.

To ensure its supremacy, the new GSX-R1000 has certainly even more power and torque, but also, and more importantly, new ways to allow the pilot to operate without restraint his extraordinary potential. The 2007 GSX-R1000, this is primarily a new more powerful engine more torque and more vivid in its revving.


The four-cylinder 999 cm3 16-valve liquid-cooled uses forged pistons made of aluminum alloy, with hollow camshafts and a balancer shaft to eliminate vibrations.

The new, more compact fuel injection system, takes the famous SDTV (Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve) characterized by a dual throttle valve. The fuel injection is assigned to a dual injector, the second injector is operated at full load and the higher revs. Twelve holes pierced, the injectors are responsible for providing a very fine atomization of the fuel so as to obtain an ideal filling of the combustion chambers. The ignition of the mixture is entrusted to iridium spark plugs and titanium valves are controlled by the more aggressive cam profile.

But the apotheosis of this technological debauchery, the new control unit which, thanks to its computing power quadruples, allows the driver to choose between three engine maps to adjust the power curve as a function of driving conditions. The dry and rain mixed modes are selected by simply pressing the button on the stalk positioned on the right wrist. To provide the new GSX-R1000 maximum efficiency, Suzuki does not hesitate to go against the tide of fashion.

At a time, when the exhaust pipes under the seat increase, Suzuki engineers have preferred to equip two silent triangular lower part which, while providing a greater volume absorption promoting torque, lower the center of gravity and center of mases. A “signature” that rival the new GSX-R1000 will have plenty of time to admire! The absolute control of the new GSX-R1000 also involves a new hydraulic clutch equipped with a torque limiter that eliminates the risk of bounce the rear wheel when the reports are returned quickly. For maximum stability at high speed, GSX-R1000 receives a hydraulic steering damper controlled by the control unit which, by actuating a valve, the brake oil passage for controlling the velocity resistance of the motorcycle.

These devices enhance the qualities of a completely new chassis design, which meets one goal: maximum rigidity. The framework uses elements diecast aluminum, a technology that allows for complex shapes, which can clamp as close to the engine and give the driver a perfect ergonomics by reducing the width of the bike. In this regard, we also note the presence of footrest adjustable in vertical and horizontal amplitude of 14 mm. The 43mm fork has four settings (preload, slow and fast compression and rebound) and won 5 mm travel (125 mm instead of 120) while the new swingarm stiffer and lighter aluminum 200 g improves traction. Control … always, to allow fans to control by keeping a cool head drivers, a sporting exception. The GSX-R1000, manages to achieve the perfect balance between ease of use and non-standard performance.
