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. This means that the new motor develops 17PS more power and torque has been hiked by a marginal 0.9Nm over its predecessor.
The new motorcycle gets Variable Valve Timing (VVT), which was developed for their MotoGP bike. 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.

What is it?
The2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000is amongst the most popular names in the world of superbikes. It isSuzuki'sflagship litre-class machine and is widely regarded as one of the best sportsbikes money can buy. In production since 2001, the 'Gixxer' as it is known popularly the world over, got its last comprehensive update a decade ago, back in 2007. The superbike world has sure moved ahead since then, and the GSX-R1000 was getting overshadowed, especially in the electronics department. The Hamamatsu-based manufacturer has responded in style though, with an all-new GSX-R that broke cover internationally last year.
The new Gixxer is completely new, be it in terms of the design, electronics or mechanicals.And unlike its rivals, for instance the Ducati 1299 Panigale and the Yamaha YZF-R1 that are more focused towards track riding, the Suzuki was considered equally good on road and track both. What's more, its easy to ride nature which meant even amateur riders felt confident riding the GSX-R.
