Legendary Japanese tuning company unveil new street-legal racer
YOSHIMURA RACE SHOP USA has unveiled a new limited-edition Suzuki GSX-R1000, based on everything the company's learned by competing in the AMA Superbike series.
Dubbed the GSX-R1000RR, the new machine features a plethora of Yoshimura's race bits, including: high-lift cams, a quick shifter, numerous suspension upgrades and a full titanium-carbon exhaust, to name just a few.
Last week Visordown broke the news to UK bikers about Buell's new controversial 1125RR racer, which has been entered in the AMA Superbike series, despite the fact that it's not on sale to the general public.
Former AMA Superbike Champion Mat Mladin spoke out vehemently against the AMA's decision to let Buell's turnkey racer compete in the series, as the machine's not on sale to the general public.
No doubt many AMA licence holders will now be beating a path to their nearest Yoshimura dealers; Suzuki fans will be please to know the Suzuki GSX-R1000RR, unlike the Buell, should be street-legal and available to the public.
Suzuki have yet to announce details on price or availability.
