2015 Suzuki GSR1000 incoming?

Suzuki GSR1000 web

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.

Suzuki launch new Hayabusa and Gixxer special editions

Suzuki Hayabusa new livery UK web

Suzuki have revealed two new factory-built special editions motorcycles for the UK market – the 2014 Hayabusa GSX1300RZ and the GSX-R750Z.

The new special edition GSX1300RZ Hayabusa features a host of aesthetic highlights, including a special red and black two-tone paint scheme and seat, as well as gold-anodised fork caps, adjusters, steering stem-nut and chain adjusters. Black Brembo calipers with red lettering complete the look, to help buyers of this legendary hyperbike stand out from the crowd.

The second offering is the 2014 GSX-R750Z special edition. Taking similar design cues as the Hayabusa, the GSX-R750Z boasts a unique red and black livery and a red seat. Like the Hayabusa, it also receives silver Brembo monobloc calipers with red lettering, dark gold-anodised steering stem-nut, chain adjusters and front forks, with red anodised fork caps and adjusters.

Pricing of both the Hayabusa and Gixxer special editions have been kept the same.
