Description

Once again, the best keeps getting better. Introducing the new 2012 GSX-R1000. Suzuki engineers have thoroughly redesigned the engine, chassis, suspension, and bodywork to create a supersport bike that is more dominant than ever. With refinements ranging from a new titanium 4-2-1 exhaust system to completely redesigned pistons, the engine rewards you with quicker acceleration, crisper throttle response and improved fuel efficiency. The chassis, suspension and braking systems are also refined for enhanced performance and a reduction in weight of over four pounds.

For 2012, the GSX-R1000 lets everyone know at a glance that it's the latest generation of the championship-winning supersport bikes that have dominated racetracks around the world. It features new colors and a variety of new styling elements, including new sporty instruments, new black fork tubes and new red pinstripes on the wheels. Put it all together and the GSX-R1000 offers incredible engine performance from idle to redline, smoother suspension performance, even more responsive handling and superior braking performance—exactly what you need to Own The Racetrack.

Standard Features

Engine
 New 999 cc four-cylinder powerplant is modified to deliver extraordinary acceleration matched by maximum top-end performance of world-class racetrack performance.  
 Race-proven designs include high-quality titanium valves, forged pistons, shot-peened conrods and large intake and exhaust valves.  
 New 4-2-1 exhaust system is significantly lighter, contributing to improved agility and handling. It is also tuned to increase mid-range engine power output.  
 New pistons have been modified using Finite-Element-Method (FEM) and fatigue-analysis techniques honed in development of MotoGP racebike engines. The result is lighter pistons with the same reliability and durability, and increased torque and low- and mid-range rpm levels.  
 Crankcase is refined with larger pentagonal cut-outs in the sides of each cylinder bore. The shape of the ventilation holes reduces pumping losses due to internal crankcase air-pressure resistance to downward piston movement.  
 Camshaft profile is optimized to maintain maximum high-rpm performance.  
 Thinner material for the valves' tappet skirts saves 2.5 grams per tappet, which reduces inertial mass and allows optimization of the valve lift curve.  
 An Engine Control Module (ECM) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has newly optimized settings to maximize the benefits of the 4-2-1 exhaust system and other engine refinements.  
 Suzuki Ram Air-Direct (SRAD) air intakes are positioned close to the centerline of the fairing to provide optimum intake efficiency.  
 Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) system uses two butterfly valves in each throttle body barrel, the primary valve controlled by the rider via the twist grip and the secondary valve controlled by the ECM.  
 A unique Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system allows the rider to select one of three fuel injection and ignition system maps, adjusting power delivery to suit personal preference.  
 Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase helps reduce friction, improve heat transfer, increase durability and provide better ring seal.  
Transmission
 The back torque-limiting clutch incorporates the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) for light clutch pull and optimum clutch performance.  
Chassis
 Twin-spar frame features an exceptionally short wheelbase and uses just five cast aluminum-alloy sections and an aluminum-alloy swingarm with just three castings.  
 The compact engine allows a longer swingarm and shorter overall wheelbase for improved racetrack performance.  
 Lightweight 43 mm Showa Big Piston Front forks (BPF) are refined to match the GSX-R1000's reduced weight. Their design offers more effective valving, with more controlled compression to deliver better feedback to the rider.  
 The Showa rear shock works through an aluminum alloy linkage mounted on the swingarm and an extruded aluminum alloy link rod connected to the frame. The rear shock offers adjustable rebound damping, spring preload, and both high-speed and low-speed compression damping.  
 Electronically controlled steering damper uses the ECM to monitor motorcycle speed and adjust damping force as needed.  
 Front disc brakes feature new top -of-the-line radial-mount Brembo monoblock calipers.  
 The rear brake works with a single piston caliper mounted above the swingarm.  
 New front and rear tires have improved tread patterns and the front tire is 200 grams liter, contributing to lower unsprung weight and sharper handling.  
 New high-grip leather seat features outstanding holding properties, providing the rider with a great sense of stability when accelerating.
