No new GSX-R1000 in 2011 but 2012 model will be 'amazing'

Of course, 'they' would say it's going to be great. But we believe them.

Suzuki isn't going to have its next-generation GSX-R1000 ready in time for the 2011 model year, but Japanese insiders have revealed that the next version – which will be launched in late 2011 as a 2012 model – is 'very, very amazing.'

Cross-plane crank? Traction control? Anti-wheelie? Launch control? ABS? We're not sure, but you can bet on it having more than a couple of them. They wouldn't be drawn on any further details.

In the meantime, you'll have to make do with the newly-released 25th anniversary version of the current GSX-R, although it's bronze and white paint-job looks like it's been inspired by a packet of mint humbugs...
