Suzuki special editions unveiled

Yoshimura-lashed GSX-R750 plus a race-spec Gladius at the NEC show

SUZUKI has unveiled new UK special editions at the NEC motorcycle show including this GSX-R750 with Yoshimura parts.

It’s got a Yoshimura exhaust, bar-end weights, crank case protectors, paddock stand locators, steering stem nut, oil filter plug and timing inspection cap. It costs £10,699, £800 more than the basic GSX-R750.

The firm's stand also features a UK special edition GSX1250F with blue and white graphics and a 'V-Strom 650 Touratech concept' – basically a V-Strom with Touratech accessories thrown at it.

A race-spec, fully-faired SVF650 Gladius is on the stand to ‘show what can be done’ with the model, according to spokesman.

The JHS Racing Gladius has GSX-R1000 forks with Öhlins cartridges, an Öhlins shock and steering damper, GSX-R600 wheels, Brembo radial calipers and a 98hp tuned engine.

Factory special editions include a Hayabusa and GSR750.  

The Motorcycle Live show runs until December 1 at Birmingham’s NEC.
