Latest Electronic Features

The new 2017 GSX-R1000 ABS Suzuki Powerful Sports Bike comes with the latest electronic system of all times. It contains the 32-bit Dual Processor Engine Module (ECM), which blends the vast street-going EFI knowledge of Suzuki with the intelligence from race-winning MotoGP program. The rider will enjoy an ultimate performance without any peer while simultaneously receiving polished street manners. Thanks to the knowledge of MotoGP, the Suzuki brand managed to fit an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) in this sports bike. This unit offers six directions, three-axis motion and position information to the ECM. It results in an instantaneous adjustment to its engine and chassis electronically without influencing its performance. Its new Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle bodies are accurately opened by its new ECM to sync the throttle grip rotation by its rider’s hand. This mechanism results in strong power delivery from the engine. There are ten different modes of Motion Track Traction Control System (MT-TCS). This system is very helpful in the increase of rider’s confidence by allowing him to adjust the amount of intervention to match the riding ability and surface conditions. This system brings additional control to anti-lock braking (ABS). The MT-TCS offers an appropriate amount of braking force for the available traction. When the IMU detects the rear wheel is lifting up due to extreme braking force, the ABS control module will adjust the pressure of front brake to reduce the lift of rear wheel. The LCD multi-function Instrument Panel was inspired by the GSX-RR MotoGP dash. The layout of this panel is kept simple so that rider can easily watch the tachometer bar, speedometer digital, and other information. There are three modes available for Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offering a different level of engine outputs. The Suzuki Easy Start System simplifies the startup of the new 2017 GSX-R1000 ABS Suzuki Powerful Sports Bike. The ECM automatically cranks the engine for about 1.5 seconds with the push of starter button. There is no need for the rider to pull the clutch level if the transmission is in neutral. Once the bike starts, the ECM will control the electronic throttle bodies to maintain its consistent engine idle speed. An innovative Suzuki Low RPM Assist System not only take-off smoothly but it also reduces the chance of the rider stalling the bike. The ECM also raises the RPM slightly for a smoother start when the clutch is released.

Engine Features

The all-new 2017 GSX-R1000 ABS Suzuki Powerful Sports Bike comes with the Four-stroke, liquid-cooled DOHC engine. It is the 999.8cc inline-four cylinder engine delivering the best performance with strong low to mid-range power. The crankshaft retains the Suzuki’s Even Firing Order Engine legacy. It enables this bike for smooth power delivery and sweats exhaust note like the 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 and 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000R. The bore to stroke ratio of this engine is 76 mm to 55.1 mm respectively. This newly designed engine is carefully mounted to its chassis providing the precise handling and to balance the weight of the bike. The new Suzuki Racing Variable Valve Timing System (SR-VVT) features the centrifugal actuated mechanism to increase high engine RPM power without losing the low to mid-range power. Each cylinder contains the titanium valves, two 31.5 mm intake and two 24mm exhaust valves. The lighter valves are very responsive and it allows the 14,500 RPM redline, which helps to produce very high peak horsepower. The new aluminum piston is about 76 mm in diameter and they have engineered with the use of FEM (Finite Element Method) analysis. They were cast for ultimate rigidity and weight. The SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material) coated cylinder are integrated into the upper crankcase to reduce the friction plus it improves the heat transfer and durability. The high 13.2:1 compression ratio provides the high horsepower. The cylinder head’s shallow combustion chamber minimizes the heat produced during operation. The EFI system uses the Suzuki’s new Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle Bodies. The automatic Idle Speed Control (ISC) enhances the cold starting plus it stabilizes the engine idle regardless of the temperature of the engine. There are four Suzuki Top Feed Injectors (S-TFI) being used in it, which spray fuel from the top of the air box directly into the intake funnels. The air box comes with the Staked Air Intake Funnels to improve its top end power without losing the lower RPM performance. Its simple design allows good air flow at all intake speeds. To increase the volumetric flow of air, Suzuki has used new Suzuki Ram Air Direct (SRAD) intake ducts. The new 4-2-1 exhaust system with titanium muffler is perfectly designed to ensure the best performance of the engine. Its titanium muffler provides the best appearance while creating the distinctive sound. The Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system valve in the mid-pipe helps in the controlling of back-pressure and to reduce exhaust sound. The cooling system of new 2017 GSX-R1000 ABS Suzuki Powerful Sports Bike was designed by using the latest analysis design so that coolant flows through the engine and radiator more efficiently. This new system features the better cooling efficiency and it is compact and lighter. The twin cooling fans guarantee the good cooling at lower road speeds. Additional heat in the engine is removed via air-cooled, radiator-style oil cooler mounted directly below the main radiator.

It features the vertically staggered shafts to minimize its overall engine length.  The primary gear is lower as compared to the previous models. The shift linkage in this sports motorcycle can easily set-up for the reverse pattern. There is the programmable shift light on its main panel, which offers the visual alert to the rider to shift when specific engine RPM is reached. The new version of SCAS (Suzuki Clutch Assist System) multi-plate wet clutch is being used. The SCAS works like the slipper clutch during downshifting, while it increases the pressure on plates during acceleration. The new 525-size drive is used with the 45/17 final sprocket ratio for reduction in weight and it complements the larger rear tire dimensions.

Chassis Features

The newly launched 2017 GSX-R1000 ABS Suzuki Powerful Sports Bike features an incredibly compact and lightweight chassis. Its engine angle is rotated backward 6-degrees, which effects in reducing the distance of fork to the center of chassis by 20 mm. This modification improves the overall stability and improves aerodynamics. The all-new aluminum twin-spar style frame was designed for this bike. This frame was designed using the FEM analysis technology to make it stronger and lighter. The spars of the frame are 20mm closer to help improved aerodynamics, looks and to bring comfort to the rider. The new aluminum swingarm has equalized bracing to the main beams to offer balanced support. The new racetrack-developed links connect the single SHOWA Remote Reservoir Shock Absorber to the braced swingarm.  The suspension action is delivered by its new fully adjustable SHOWA Big Piston Fork (BPF), which is famous for their best damping force control. It maintains the contact of front tire with the surface so that rider gets good feedback at different speeds. The new BREMBO Radial Mount Brake Caliper offers the rider with the strong braking performance. The all-new BREMBO T-drive Brake Rotors comes with two methods of attaching the floating disc of 320mm to the carrier.
