Suzuki confirms 2017 GSX-R1000 prices

Still a bargain

SUZUKI has just announced the price of the new 2017 GSX-R1000 at £13,249, while the higher-spec GSX-R1000R is £16,099.
That makes the starting price nearly £2,000 cheaper than the base edition of the new Honda Fireblade, which costs £15,225. 
Meanwhile the GSX-R1000R is over £3,000 cheaper than the Fireblade SP. 
Both versions of the all-new GSX-R make a claimed 202hp and feature 10-mode traction control and ABS that controls rear wheel lift under heavy braking.
The GSX-RR also has an inertial measurement unit controlling cornering ABS, plus launch control, a bi-directional quick-shifter and an auto-blipper.
The GSX-R1000 is due to arrive in dealerships in late March and the GSX-R1000R in May.
Suzuki GB marketing manager Rob Cooper said: “Anticipation is high for both the GSX-R1000R and the GSX-R1000, and we’re delighted to be able to confirm highly-competitive pricing for both models.
“The GSX-R1000R was designed and built afresh from the ground up, and gets a comprehensive electronics package to further enhance its performance.
“We’re also really pleased to be able to offer a stripped back version of our flagship sportsbike that delivers the same unrivaled engine performance and class-leading power at a lower price point.
“Our brand philosophy is to deliver value-packed products at a great price, and the GSX-R1000 is both brand-new and the most affordable litre sports bike on the market."

Is that is mooring fender on the rear?

Am I imagining this or is that the worlds biggest bloody exhaust?!!

On a side note, it looks like Suzuki may have laid a trump card in making it £2k cheaper than a 'Blade. Just have to wait for Visordown to do a back to back test and see if Honda have dropped a bollock.... Visordown, if you need a tester - I am here!!

No semi-active suspension then on the R?
