The current generation Suzuki GSX-R1000 gets unfortunately neutered for the American market, but it is a stout superbike on the other side of the pond, where its 200hp is unleashed. Now our European friends get to see what the Suzuki GSX-R1000 can do when the Japanese brand cranks it up to 11.
Behold the Suzuki GSX-R1000 Ryuyo, a 209hp superbike that weighs 370 lbs (dry), and is our answer to the teaser photos that Suzuki has been sharing on social media. The work of Suzuki Moto Italia, only 20 Ryuyo-spec machines will be made for consumption, and they will cost €29,990 if you want one.
An homage to the Ryuyo R&D center that tests all of Suzuki’s new models, the Suzuki GSX-R1000 Ryuyo is an example of the technical prowess found at this Japanese motor house.
Teaming up with a bevy of other brands on the project, we see the work of Yoshimure, Öhlins, Dunlop, Brembo, K&N, Motual, D&D, and others also embedded in the Ryuyo model. As you can surmise too, the bodyworks is all in carbon fiber.&
Full details are still light, at this moment, since the Suzuki GSX-R1000 Ryuyo doesn’t officially debut until the EICMA trade show in November, but that hasn’t stopped Suzuki from releasing some basic technical information and a dozen or so photos. You can check it out on their website.
