The History Of Suzuki Gsx R1000 Motorcycle

The GSX-R1000 is a sport bike from Suzuki’s GSX-R series of motorcycles. It was introduced in 2001 to replace the GSX-R1100 and is powered by a liquid-cooled 999 cc inline four-cylinder, four-stroke engine. For 2001, Suzuki introduced a new GSX-R model that replaced the largest and most powerful model of the GSX-R series sport bike, the GSX-R1100, with the all new GSX-R1000. As the model name revealed, the engine’s cylinder displacement was roughly 1,000 cc (61 cu in), about 100 cc smaller than its predecessor. The GSX-R1000 was not just an enlarged version of the GSX-R750, although it shared many features with its little brother. The main frame is the same in both models, but the material used on the big brother was .5 mm (0.020 in) thicker. Suzuki claimed the torsional rigidity of the frame had increased 10{7999a8309af6224f4d845e4abcd27f0719096a3ddeac7de53185ec65ca31df3b} in comparison with the GSX-R750. With the 2001 model of the GSX-R1000, the 1998 Yamaha YZF-R1 was finally surpassed with the GSX-R being lighter and more powerful. The 2001 model carried over to 2002 with minimal changes. 2002 introduced i.a. modifications to the fuel pump, clutch, front axle, torque link, mirrors, and luggage hooks. The manual fast-idle was replaced with a computer operated implementation (the “STV servo”). New colors, and new GSXR stickers.

After the GSX-R1000 had been three years on the roads and race tracks, Suzuki put out a new version of the model in late September 2002. Suzuki engineers had been working on the three things that made a fast bike faster; weight, power and handling. The 2003 year’s GSX-R1000 was improved in all three counts. It weighed less, had more power/torque and handled better. The headlights of the 2003 year’s GSX-R1000 were mounted vertically to enable the ram-air intakes in the front to be placed 20 mm nearer the bike’s center line. The new design was very much inspired by the look of the Hayabusa. The instruments were also redesigned. The 2003 model carried over to 2004 without any significant improvements. The 2005 model year GSX-R1000 had a redesigned engine and chassis. It had 4.4 lb (2.0 kg) lower weight than the previous model and the engine had an 11 cc (0.67 cu in) larger piston displacement. It had a totally new frame reducing the total length of the bike by 1.6 in (41 mm) but reducing its wheelbase only 0.02 in (0.51 mm). There were new brakes with radial mounted calipers and 310 mm (12 in) discs at the front. The new catalytic titanium silencer was said to be designed to reduce turbulence to minimum. The 2005 model carried over to 2006 without any significant improvements.

On September 22, 2006, Suzuki revealed a significantly updated GSX-R1000 for 2007 at the Paris motor show. The new bike gained 14 lb (6.4 kg) over the 2006 model which was due to its new exhaust system and new emissions regulations. To counter this weight increase, Suzuki claimed improved aerodynamics along with a faster revving engine and larger throttle body to increase power to 168 hp (125 kW) @ 11,500 rpm. Although not a completely new model, the engine and chassis have been updated. It also featured three different engine mapping configurations, selectable via two buttons located on the right handlebar. One up, and one down arrow to cycle between Mode A (Unrestricted), Mode B (Reduced power until 50{7999a8309af6224f4d845e4abcd27f0719096a3ddeac7de53185ec65ca31df3b} throttle is applied), and Mode C (Reduced power throughout the rpm regardless of throttle application). It also received a Hydraulic 2007 model carried over to 2008 without any significant improvements. Neverland-motor is a global Motorcycle Parts and Auto Parts online retailer.
