We will never tire of saying it. GSX-R: these 4 letters have changed the face of the world a little. It was 30 years ago, in a world where speed was king, where having 100 horsepower in a 7 and a half made you enter a prestigious clan, where the lightning was blue and white with a red letter.
Suzuki likes to cultivate this past. Besides, he only remains, and for a long time, to offer a sports car of 750 cm3, distant daughter of the original era of Superbike. Here, we pay homage to this glorious time through a special series. The GSX-R 1000 is covered with the same decoration as the 750 of 1985. The dress, the small bands of different blues ending with a small comma, the stickers on the sides of the fork crown … it starts well. But there was a little more to do to really stir the nostalgia. Mr Suzuki, it would be nice to put blue saddles, a two-tone tank, and a small plate engraved on the fork crown. No ? No way ?
Well, we will console ourselves with the little bonuses that only 20 privileged people can find on this 1000 GSX-R 30th anniversary. A more racing sound system, with a Yoshimura R11 stainless steel exhaust. Protection improved by a double curvature bubble. And for the workshop, a racing crutch and a protective cover.
Only available in ABS version, this Superbike with a vintage dress is not all about seducing. It also relies on a quality chassis, a big, well-stocked 185 horsepower engine, Brembo braking, top-notch efficiency and consistency, and a name that will resonate between the edges of the track for a long time..
