Is Suzuki working on a GSX-R 1000 naked version for 2015? Well, if rumour mills are to be believed, it might soon be a reality. This might just be one of the most awaited streetfighters from the Suzuki stable. The GSR1000 naked-bike will house the same 999-cc four-cylinder engine from its superbike counterpart, albeit in a detuned state.
The higher-capacity (1000-cc+) naked-bike market globally has seen a lot of activity of late, with the likes of BMW, Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM and Yamaha all vying for market-share in the litre naked-bike segment. Perhaps the only manufacturer in the game without a proper entry is Suzuki and with GSR1000, the manufacturer would fill a fairly obvious gap in their lineup.
We can speculate that Suzuki might make the GSR1000 a reality pretty soon, but as always, only time will tell. Stay-tuned for more.
