About Suzuki GSXR 1000

When the Suzuki GSX-R1000 replaced the GSX-R1100 in 2001, it proved that less is more. Although the GSX-R1000 loses 100 cc in engine capacity, it has a better engine, and is slimmer too. Suzuki turned to its successful GSX-R750 for inspiration when designing the GSX-R1000, giving it a better engine and sturdier frame. Compared to the GSX-R750, the Suzuki GSX-R1000 frame is only 0.02 inches thicker, but 10 percent stronger thanks its improved torsional rigidity. With each passing generation, this bike becomes faster and more powerful. Although it comes with snazzy fairings, GSX-R1000 owners can personalize their bikes with custom versions made from premium materials, such as carbon fiber, or one of those race-themed paint jobs. Besides the fairings, a Suzuki GSX-R1000 body kit also comes with all the screws, bolts, and washers necessary for installation. You can find a wide selection of Suzuki GSX-R1000s on eBay, as well as all the parts and accessories needed to keep this powerful bike running in grand style.
