GSX-R1000R PHANTOM OWN THE ROADS AND THE RACETRACK
That's why we've built you the most advanced, most exciting GSX-R in history, with an aggressive new look to match.
AN UNBEATABLE PACKAGE
The most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R ever built. It’s also the most compact, most aerodynamic and the best handling GSX-R1000. With a supremely effective electronic engine management system, derived from MotoGP technology, it maximises drivability from the 202PS engine without being complicated to use. It’s time to Own the Racetrack.
The GSX-R1000R Phantom has all the same championship winning performance as the GSX-R1000R but adds a distinctive look, carefully selected Genuine Accessories and a Yoshimura R11 sq silencer and heat shield. The Suzuki Genuine Accessories include a smoked double bubble screen, a seat tail cowl, tank pad, fuel cap trim and brake and clutch lever protectors. All this combines to create a unique and striking addition to the GSX-R line-up. (Please note Suzuki Genuine Accessories will be fitted during PDI and benefit from Suzuki’s 3 year warranty, Yoshimura parts fitment will need to be arranged separately post PDI and registration and use the Yoshimura warranty.)
The high specification GSX-R1000R Phantom comes fitted with Lean angle sensitive ABS¹, Balance Free suspension, launch control, braided front brake hoses, adjustable swingarm pivot, LED position lights, Negative instrument display and lightweight upper yoke as standard
THE PERFECT BALANCE
Equipped with the latest Showa BFF (Balance Free Front) forks and BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) lite shock, developed for racing. Both improve cornering traction by delivering smoother, more controlled travel and better reaction to surface imperfections.
AN ALL NEW CHASSIS
The new chassis is more compact and narrower. The new bolt-on rear subframe is now made of square aluminium tubing, reducing weight by 38%. A new aluminium swingarm is braced on both sides instead of on one, to improve weight and rigidity balance.
NEW BREMBO DISCS AND CALIPERS
Brembo stainless steel brake discs are 10 mm larger in diameter, measuring 320 mm. Each disc features a hybrid mounting system using a 50/50 combination of 5 conventional spring loaded floating pin mounts and 5 Brembo T-drive floating mounts. The GSX-R1000’s Brembo radial-mount, monobloc front brake calipers each use braided hoses and have four 32 mm pistons working with a radial-pump, 19 mm master cylinder. The rear brake system uses a single-piston caliper and a 220 mm disc.
ADVANCED RIDER TECHNOLOGY
The GSX-R1000R is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a new Motion Track Brake System¹, Motion Track TCS (Traction Control System²), Suzuki Drive Mode Selector, Launch Control and a Bi-Directional Quick Shift System.
The GSX-R1000R has sleeker and more aerodynamic bodywork designed to improve handling and top speed on the racetrack. The bodywork has a more connected flow line from the fairing nose to the tail section. It’s lighter, producing less moment inertia and less leverage on the centre of gravity. And it directs the airflow to improve engine and brake cooling while also increasing down force, rider wind protection, and engine efficiency.
LED LIGHTING TECHNOLOGY
The Suzuki GSX-R1000R features a LED headlight that is more compact than a halogen headlight, yet produces excellent lighting. Installed in the nose of the fairing, the LED headlight is narrower and shorter, contributing to the new GSX-R’s aerodynamics.
Featuring full LCD instrumentation. The dash is brighter and easier to read, and incorporates S-DMS mode and Motion Track TCS level indicators as well as a fuel gauge and readouts showing instantaneous or average fuel consumption, ambient temperature, freeze indicator and service reminders.
