The engine fits onto a new chassis which is compact and narrower and gives a lighter feeling during handling, which is aided by the Showa Big Piston Forks, Brembo monoblock front caliper and Bridgestone RS10 Radial Tyres.
In addition to the above, Suzuki have loaded the GSX-R with a 6 direction IMU to aid with latest electronics such as a 10 level Motion Track TCS System, Motion Track Braking System with ABS, LED Headlight & Taillight and full LCD instrumentation.
And for those who are looking for more, there is the GSX-R1000R which adds Launch Control, Bi-directional Quick Shifter, Showa Balance Free Suspension, Lean ABS and LED Position Lights.
