Cool It is here...

Here is the pic of the all-new 2017 GSX-R1000 from the Intermot show... I know both Kevin Schwantz and Aleix Espargaro rode it over the weekend, and said it is amazing.

Looking forward to more specs when they are released, but here are the details from RRW: http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/...ed-in-germany/

..... then collected their check.... Even if it was a pile of shit, do you think either of them could say any less?

Re: It is here...

Sounds like they've done a thorough job. Can't wait to see the road tests/dyno runs. Some impressive tech in that bike
Oh damn they got 2 Black versions - Thats me broke again. ...

Pics of all the colours here:

Re: It is here...

Chuck, I don't know about Kevin and Aleix, but I know when the K7 came out, Mat and Ben were very open about how bad it was compared to the K5/K6...

Re: It is here...

Ok, so I am hearing more rumors about this bike, in terms of the power output...

Looks like about 165-170rwhp stock, depending on the dyno. The feedback Suzuki is getting is that the power is very smooth and linear, and the VVT gives a nice punch up top.

Not sure what kind of electronic nannies can be removed, like the ZX-10r has, so I don't know about the full power potential yet, but I will report back as I hear more.

You'll be waiting a while longer. May, 2017...

I'm hugely disappointed in how fat this thing is. 200+ kilos.

So much for the rumors that it would be the lightest one ever.

Re: It is here...

Man...I need one of these like I need a hole in my head...But I just might buy one...The Black is Killer...wonder the cost...14-15 G ??? If it is under 15,000 I'm getting one


So is this @ the crank H/P??

Suzuki claims a new 999.8cc engine with a bore and stroke of 76mm x 55.1mm makes 199.27 horsepower at 13,000 rpm and 86.74 lbs.-ft. of torque at 10,800 rpm in European trim

Man red Line 14,500...That motor will be singing...

Re: It is here...

Not sure if everyone/anyone has seen this video... 14,000 RPM...Got to thinking about this once I saw the Red Line of the New GSXR...was 14,5000...Must have some pretty strong valve springs you for sure would not want a valve to float...would not be pretty

Don't care abot the tires, dash, or eyebrows (seriously Suzuki?), but the suspensions and electronics sound good.
