Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle Review Specs Price

As “The King of Sport Bikes,” the new Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle has captured many hearts. For the most part, a motorcycle’s basic skills can be summarized in three words: “run,” “stop,” and “turn.” The new Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle does all three better than any other bike in its class.

Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle – Features and Price

Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle

Engine Features

An inline four-cylinder engine that’s small yet powerful, with a DOHC design and liquid cooling, comes standard on the 999.8cc motorcycle. Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle’s Even Firing Order Engine heritage is carried on in the crankshaft. The GSX-R1000R has a screamer exhaust sound and produces excellent, smooth, and dependable power at all engine rpm. Other bikes with unbalanced firing order engines shake more. Due to efficient design, the new GSXshort-stroke R1000’s engine is narrower than the previous model’s due to a 76.0mm bore against a 55.1mm stroke difference. For perfect handling and weight distribution, the engine has been moved rearward and positioned in the frame to achieve optimum chassis dimensions.

For increased power at higher engine revolutions per minute, Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle Racing Variable Valve Timing System (SR-VVT) employs a centrifugal-actuated mechanism on the intake camshaft sprocket. As a result of its less weight, the Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle Racing Finger Follower valve train offers better valve response and decreased friction at higher engine rpm. Each cylinder has titanium valves, two 31.5mm intake and two 24mm exhaust valves. A higher redline of 14,500 rpm is possible because of the lighter valves, which react effectively to the finger follower’s arms and help generate a large amount of peak horsepower.FEM analysis was used to design aluminum pistons with a diameter of 76.0mm, and the pistons were cast for the best possible combination of stiffness and weight. SCEM-coated cylinders from Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle are used in the top crankcase to enhance heat transmission and durability while reducing friction.

The high compression ratio of 13.2:1 contributes to the high output of horsepower. The shallow combustion chamber in the cylinder head helps to reduce the amount of heat generated when the engine is running. Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle’s Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle Bodies are used in the EFI system. A servo motor controls the throttle valves to provide accurate and smooth power in response to the rider’s throttle grip input. Cold starting is improved and engine idle is stabilized using automated Idle Speed Control (ISC).

There are four Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle Top Feed Injectors (S-TFI) and the primary four fuel injectors in the throttle bodies, which spray fuel straight into the intake funnels from the top of the airbox. As a consequence, the peak power and combustion efficiency go up, as does the fuelling control.

The airbox has stacked intake funnels for the two outside cylinders to boost peak power without sacrificing low-end torque. Without the need for a mechanism that adds weight or complexity, adequate airflow is achieved with this simple design. When driving at higher speeds, Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle Ram Air Direct (SRAD) intake ducts enhance the volumetric flow of air entering the airbox.

Iridium-type spark plugs, used in conjunction with the digital ignition, provide a more vital spark and greater combustion efficiency. These high-quality parts are also more durable than ordinary spark plugs. There is a broad range of performance with an exhilarating surge up to redline with the 4-2-1 exhaust system. With its matte black finish and brushed stainless steel heat shield, the black titanium muffler creates a thrilling, unique sound while being tucked away for excellent clearance at high lean angles.

For improved power delivery and reduced exhaust noise, the Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle Exhaust Tuning (SET) system valve in the mid-pipe regulates back pressure and flow. It does this without the need for a bigger silencer.

Transmission Features

When utilized in competition, the GSX-R1000R has Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle’s Bi-Directional Quick Shift System, enabling clutchless upshifts and downshifts.

With the six-speed cassette gearbox, cyclists may fine-tune the gear ratio to their own riding needs. With the engine remaining in the frame, a cassette-style gearbox may be readily removed from the crankcase as a component, enabling gear changes on the racetrack and simplifying maintenance.

To minimize total engine length, Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle used vertically staggered shafts, based on their race-proven close-ratio gearboxes, to build the GSX-R1000R transmission. For better acceleration, the GSX-main R1000’s gear ratio is reduced from the previous generations. Reverse pattern, GP-style shifting is simple to set up using the shift linkage (even with the quick-shifter in use).

Chassis Features

Due to Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle MotoGP chassis development lessons, the GSX-R1000R engine angle was shifted six degrees backward from that of the previous GSX-R1000 generation. It resulted in a 20 mm reduction in fork-to-chassis distance and a 40 mm increase in swing arm length. As a result, the chassis is more stable and the aerodynamics are better.

Frame strength was optimized by utilizing FEM analysis technology, which resulted in an aluminum twin-spar design that is 10% lighter than the previous GSX-R1000 frame. The frame’s spars are 20 millimeters closer together to assist with aerodynamics, aesthetics, and rider comfort. Because of the swing arm’s balanced support and movement for the shock absorber, it improves racetrack handling while providing the rider with a constant suspension feel.

To make the chassis more competition-ready, the GSX-swing arm R1000R’s pivot is movable (please use the standard position for street riding). When it comes to damping force response, a SuperSport motorbike has never had anything like the Showa BFF. The design of this suspension regulates the damping force outside the spring chamber so that the fork maintains precise and constant damping independent of the stroking motion. The BFF provides the rider with unrivaled surface input and ride conformity.

In addition to the BFF fork, the GSX-R1000R is equipped with a lightweight, race-ready triple clamp. Brembo Radial Mount Brake Calipers provide the rider excellent stopping power and feel, as well as stainless steel brake lines up front for a more tactile brake pedal, feel and quicker brake reaction.

The 320mm floating disc may be attached to the carrier using one of two ways with Brembo T-drive Brake Rotors. These innovative T-drive fasteners are designed to let the rotor absorb more energy than a disc using just traditional rotor spools. The GSX-R1000R boasts greater braking power than ever before because of the larger-diameter discs and the point they can absorb.

The Nissin single-piston caliper rear disc brake works in conjunction with the 240mm front disc brake to provide the rider more control while stopping. The Motion Track Brake System, like traditional ABS, adjusts the amount of braking force based on the amount of available traction and information from the inertial measurement unit (IMU). A motorcycle’s ABS will use an IMU-detected rear wheel lift, or tilt, to modulate the front brake to assist keep things stable and sustaining braking.

The lightweight six-spoke wheels, exclusive to Suzuki 2020 GSX-R1000R Sports Motorcycle, decrease unsprung mass while also being engineered to withstand the high braking and driving forces generated by the GSX-R1000R.

The motorcycle is equipped with the Bridgestone Street RS11 low mass racing tires, making it ready to go to the track. The tread pattern on the tires minimizes tire wear while increasing cornering grip for better performance at high speeds.

Electrical Features

With the CAN Bus wiring harness, all GSX-electronic R1000R’s systems can communicate quickly and precisely. The bulk and complexity of the wiring are reduced with a CAN Bus system, allowing for faster and more trouble-free electrical system operation for passengers.

With a black backdrop and white numerals, the LCD multifunction instrument panel is easy to see at night, thanks to the adjustable intensity white color lighting. Turn signals, high beams, traction control, shift lights, coolant temperature, and oil pressure are all shown on the LCD main screen, bordered by LED indicators.

The LED headlamp is small, light, and stands out from the competition. The narrow, stacked form of this low-electric-draw light allows the SRAD ducts at the fairing’s nose to reach the high-pressure air generated at more incredible speeds.
