Suzuki slashes £400 off GSX-R1000

182hp for £10,600

SUZUKI has slashed £400 off the list price of a GSX-R1000, making the 182hp superbike £10,599 plus on-the-road charges.

That's for the 2015 non-ABS edition of the GSX-R1000. The ABS version, which is new for 2015, will cost the same as the non-ABS model did this year, at £10,999 plus OTR charges.

The price of the new 200hp Yamaha R1 has not been confirmed but is expected to be nearly £5,000 more than the Gixer thou’, at £15,500. The higher-spec limited edition R1M is expected to cost around £20,000.  

The 2015 GSX-R1000 still won’t be as cheap as it was earlier this year, when Suzuki knocked £1,000 of the list price to £9,999, but that was a temporary offer lasting two months only.

The GSX-R1000 also comes in new red and black or grey and black colour schemes, both on display until Sunday at the Motorcycle Live Show at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre.

A new MotoGP replica special edition costs from £10,899.
