After a long time, Suzuki has rolled out the all-new 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R models from their Hamamatsu facilities. The 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000R is the longest running, and most iconic line of Suzuki, having proven its prowess out on the track many times over.
This year, Suzuki has redesigned every aspect of the much loved GSX-R. Now, the 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R feature a completely redesigned chassis, newly developed engine with much more mid-range, and a host of electronic upgrades that have made it quite the contender within 2017’s Superbike lineup.
