This versatile engine is also suitable for difficult driving on track curves or effortlessly accelerating into public highways.

In short, Suzuki has developed a new generation of GSX-R1000, which has unparalleled reliability, durability, usability, and overall performance. It has excellent racing potential, and its packaging is very suitable for street riders and track and field riders and amateurs or Professional racer. Suzuki’s comprehensive design method comprises a dedicated team of the talented engine, chassis, electronics, and aerodynamic engineers working together to produce an outstanding sports motorcycle. The new GSX-R1000R proves that it was made to own the track .

2019 Suzuki GSX-R1000R Sports Bike – Features and Price

2019 Suzuki GSX-R1000R Sports Bike

Main Features

The in-line four-cylinder engine DOHC relies on the unique Suzuki variable valve timing (VVT) system and efficient 4-2-1 exhaust device (with an improved silencer and heat). It can produce a robust mid-to-low-range tensile shielding. Compared with the previous generation GSX-R, the GSX-R1000R’s double-beam aluminum frame is lighter and more compact. It features a new adjustable swing arm pivot that can help racers adjust the chassis to achieve excellent track performance.

The GSX-RR MotoGP dash inspires the black background LCD multi-function instrument panel dedicated to GSX-R1000R. The unique GSX-R1000R logo on the rear makes others aware that this motorcycle is extraordinary. The aerodynamic fairing is equipped with bright LED headlights above the Suzuki Ram Air Direct duct, with eyebrow position lights. It can supply air to the engine’s electronic throttle body to enhance high-end power.

Engine Features

The compact four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999.8cc inline four-cylinder engine is designed with high-end performance and strong mid-to-low-end power. The crankshaft retains Suzuki’s tradition of occasional command engines. The uneven ignition command engine used by other motorcycles has more excellent vibration, and the 2019 Suzuki GSX-R1000R Sports Bike can provide good, stable, and reliable power at all engine speeds while screaming. The short-stroke engine has a bore of 76mm and a stroke of 55.1mm, but due to its efficient design, it is narrower than the previous generation GSX-R1000.

The engine has been rotated back and positioned in the frame to create the optimal chassis size to achieve precise handling and balance the weight of the motorcycle. The value of the Suzuki Racing Finger Follower valve drive system is less than that of the tappet valve drive system. It can reduce friction and increase valve response at higher engine speeds. Each cylinder uses titanium valves, the two intake ports are 31.5mm, and the two exhaust valves are 24mm. The lighter valve responds well to the arm of the finger follower and allows redistribution of the red line at 14,500 rpm, helping to produce very high peak horsepower.

Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)-coated cylinders are integrated into the upper crankcase to lower friction and improve heat transfer and durability. The 13.2:1 high compression ratio helps produce high horsepower. The shallow combustion chamber of the cylinder head minimizes the heat generated during operation. Regardless of engine temperature, automatic idle speed control (ISC) can improve cold start and stabilize engine idle speed.

Transmission Characteristics

The GSX-R1000R is equipped with Suzuki’s two-way fast-shifting system. When the motorcycle is used in the race, the system can realize clutch-less shifting up and down. The cassette-type six-speed gearbox enables the rider to match the gear ratio to the riding conditions accurately. The cassette gearbox can be easily removed from the crankcase while the engine is still in the frame, which simplifies the replacement of track gears and simplifies maintenance.

The 2019 Suzuki GSX-R1000R Sports Bike gearbox is based on Suzuki’s practically tested short transmission ratio, with vertically staggered shafts to reduce the overall engine length. Compared with the previous generation GSX-R1000, the primary gear ratio is lower and can achieve stronger acceleration. You can easily set the shift lever to reverse mode, GP-style shifting (even if a quick shift lever is used). There is a programmable shift light on the motherboard that provides a visual warning for the rider to change gears when the specific engine speed is reached.

GSX-R1000R is equipped with Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS), a multi-plate wet clutch. When downshifting, SCAS works like a slip clutch, and when accelerating, it increases the pressure on the plate. It can make engine braking smooth and reduce clutch tension. To reduce the moving mass, a 525-size drive chain is used, and the final sprocket ratio is 45/17, which can complement the large rear tire size.

Advanced Electronic Functions

The fast 32-bit dual-processor Engine Control Module (ECM) combines Suzuki’s extensive EFI knowledge with the intelligence of Suzuki’s award-winning MotoGP program. Riders of the GSX-R1000R will get unparalleled sports motorcycle performance while also getting beautiful street manners. Using MotoGP’s knowledge, Suzuki installed an inertial measurement unit (IMU) on the GSX-R1000F. IMU provides six-direction, three-axis, motion, and position information to ECM.

The wire-controlled electronic throttle body is precisely opened by the ECM to adapt to the rider’s throttle grip rotation and the improvement of electronic equipment affected by the IMU. The three modes of the Suzuki driving mode selector (S-DMS) allow the rider to select the power output level of the engine to match the riding ability and conditions. The unique 10-mode motion trajectory traction control system (MT-TCS) affected by the IMU can increase the rider’s confidence by adjusting the intervention to adapt to the riding ability and ground conditions.

The LED headlights of the 2019 Suzuki GSX-R1000R Sports Bike are light, bright, and distinctive. This low-power ceiling lamp has a narrow stacking shape so that the SRAD pipe at the front end can legally obtain high-pressure air generated at a higher speed. The controller area network wiring harness (CAN bus) can carry out fast and accurate communication between all GSX-R1000R electronic systems. The top edge of the SRAD pipe in the fairing nose is decorated with a pair of unique arched LED position lights to increase visibility and enhance the uniqueness of the motorcycle.

Chassis Characteristics

Using the lessons learned from the development of the Suzuki MotoGP chassis, the engine angle of the GSX-R1000R is rotated backward by 6 degrees compared with the previous generation GSX-R1000. The expected effect of this is to reduce the distance from the fork to the center of the frame by 20 mm and increase the length of the rear swingarm by 40mm. It increases chassis stability and improves aerodynamics. The aluminum double-beam frame is designed with finite element analysis technology, and the strength can be placed in an appropriate position.

The rear rocker arm supported by the aluminum Superbike has the same support as the main beam to provide balanced support and movement for the shock absorber. The rocker pivot of GSX-R1000R is a new product in 2019, and the position is now adjustable. The chassis can be better adjusted for competition (please use the standard work when riding on the street). The suspension is designed to control the damping force outside the spring cavity, so the front fork can accurately maintain consistent damping regardless of its stroke.

We can provide all kinds of original Suzuki accessories and a variety of GSX-R logo clothing. Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP) offers longer coverage and other benefits including 12-month unlimited mileage limited warranty.
