Compact Engine

The design team quickly settled on basic engine design goals. The new engine would rev higher and make more peak horsepower, while maintaining excellent low-to-mid-range power and drive. It would be a compact and lightweight lnline Four, DOHC with chain cam drive and four titanium valves per cylinder set at narrow angles, with a more over-square bore/stroke ratio, a higher redline and a higher compression ratio.

All-New Chassis

The new GSX-R1000’s chassis is more compact and narrower than the previous model’s chassis. Suzuki engineers designed a new twin-spar aluminum perimeter frame that’s 20 mm narrower at the widest point between the spars and weighs 10% less.

IMU sensor to track motorcycle motion

The new GSX-R1000’s advanced electronic management system incorporates feedback from a Continental Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which tracks the motion and position of the motorcycle in 6-directions, along 3-axis, Pitch, Roll and Yaw.

Improved Aerodynamics

The 2017 GSX-R1000 has MotoGP-inspired, sleeker and more aerodynamic bodywork designed to improve handling and top speed on the racetrack.
