2023 Suzuki GSX-R1000 & GSX-R1000R now in Australian dealerships

Suzuki will continue to offer both their GSX-R1000 and flagship GSX-R1000R in 2023 despite their withdrawal from MotoGP. Both bikes are now available in Australian dealerships with pricing starting from $24,990 for the GSX-R1000 and $27,990 for the GSX-R1000R ride away.

With savvy engineering and jaw-dropping performance, it’s no surprise Suzuki’s GSX-R lineage been a towering presence in the global sportsbike scene for five decades. The latest iterations of both machines are designed for razor-sharp execution in the three core fundamentals of motorcycle performance – acceleration, cornering, and braking.

Breathtaking acceleration for the duo is provided by the most powerful and technologically advanced production GSX-R engine ever built, utilising advanced features such as variable valve timing, a finger-follower valve train, top feed injectors and exhaust tuning butterfly valves.

The advantage of all that mechanical harmony is a brilliant set of numbers: 148.6kW (202ps) at 13,200rpm and 117.6Nm of torque at 10,800rpm, channelled through a bi-directional quickshifter for smooth upshifts and downshifts without using the clutch or throttle. The shift linkage can also be easily set for ‘reverse-pattern’ for GP-style shifting on the racetrack.

The GSX-Rs are at the front line of electronics with a six-axis inertial measurement unit supporting functions including cornering ABS and a Motion Track Brake System to minimise rear-wheel lift during under hard braking.

The Suzuki’s have a 10-level traction control system, while further personalisation is available via the three-mode Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) system to allow riders to tailor the engine’s power delivery and response to their preferred setting.

The MY2023 GSX-R1000 and GSX-R1000R share the same spec engine, twin-spare aluminium perimeter frame – recently updated with a narrower (by 20mm) and lighter (by 10 percent) profile – and radial-mount Brembo monobloc calipers.

Compared to the GSX-R1000, the GSX-R1000R then adds sophisticated launch control and ‘auto-blipper’, an adjustable swingarm pivot point, braided steel front brake lines, LED position lights, a lightweight battery, and a unique black LCD instrument panel.

The GSX-R1000R also has the latest fully adjustable Showa suspension: a BFF (Balance Free Front) fork and Showa BFRC (Balance Free Rear Cushion Lite) shock absorber. The GSX-R1000 is fitted with a Showa Big Piston Fork and link-type Showa shock absorber, also fully adjustable.

The MY23 GSX-R1000 is now available from Australian dealerships in a Metallic Mat Black/Glass Sparkle Black livery, whilst the MY23 GSX-R1000R comes in Metallic Triton Blue/Metallic Mystic Silver. Ride away prices include 12 months’ registration and are backed by Suzuki’s three-year unlimited-kilometre warranty (two standard and one bonus year).
