Suzuki Motor USA, LLC recently unveiled its 2022 powersports product line, featuring race-winning GSX-R sportbikes (they also launched ’22 scooters, street bikes and off-road machines, but we get to that next time).
In 1985, Suzuki revolutionized the sportbike category with the introduction of the original GSX-R750 and then created another milestone in 2001 with the introduction of the GSX-R1000. Using the lithe chassis of the GSX-R750 and a 988cc inline four-cylinder engine design that Suzuki is renowned for, Superbike performance became available to riders everywhere.
This dedication to performance at the highest level is seen in every aspect of Suzuki sportbike development and the lessons learned in winning the 2020 MotoGP Championship and the impressive victories in the MotoAmerica Championship can be felt in every GSX-R in the series.
In the family of ultra-high-performance motorcycles, the 2022 GSX-R1000’s versatile engine provides power delivered smoothly and controllably across a broad rpm range. Like the original GSX-R1000, the 2022’s compact, light, and strong chassis deliver nimble handling with excellent suspension feel and braking control, that works on a racetrack or a country road. Advanced electronic rider aids such as traction control and a bi-directional quick shifter while the distinctive, aerodynamic GSX-R bodywork slices through the wind.
Equipped with Showa’s Big-piston Fork plus Brembo T-drive rotors and Monobloc brake calipers the GSX-R1000 help deliver the sort of performance and confidence your sportbike customers demand. A new Metallic Matte Black No. 2 and Glass Matte Mechanical Gray paint scheme with contrasting black graphics joins the popular monochromatic Metallic Matte Black No. 2 body treatment delivering an aggressive look seen on a spy plane.
For 2022, the GSX-R1000R is offered with a historic Metallic Triton Blue and Metallic Mystic Silver paint scheme similar to the Team Suzuki ECSTAR MotoGP world championship livery, a stunning Metallic Matte Black and Glass Matte Mechanical Gray, or a stealthy Metallic Matte Black paint scheme.
The GSX-R1000R continues its reign as the best liter-class supersport with the ultimate combination of reliability, durability, usability, and overall performance with excellent racing potential in a striking package that respects the GSX-R legacy.
On the road or on the track since 1985, the GSX-R750 delivers a combination of outstanding engine performance, precise handling, compact size, and lightweight that combine for an exhilarating motorcycle. Its secret is in pairing a 750cc performance with the lightweight, compact chassis of a 600cc Supersport, complemented by technologically advanced suspension front and rear.
The 2022 GSX-R750 is the latest expression of the GSX-R’s original concept and builds upon Suzuki’s championship-winning heritage. Like no other sportbike, the GSX-R750 offers a precise, high-performance riding experience that may be used on the street or on the racetrack.
GSX-R600 – The GSX-R600’s compact, powerful, four-cylinder engine reacts with vigor when you demand it, while its supremely refined suspension and brakes provide precise, responsive confidence-inspiring handling
The GSX-R600’s race-ready look isn’t manufactured, it’s the byproduct of the GSX-R’s multiple decades of production roadracing dominance. Dominance that continues to this day in multiple race series around the world. The bike is at home on the track or the street.
