A Review Suzuki GSX-R1000
Suzuki GSX-R1000 is a brand new facelift of the 2011 model which is performing well even without the much talked about specifications in top bikes. The bodywork of the new model bike is similar to the 2011 version though it boasts of a few changes especially on the graphics. The brakes on this model are unique and distinctive. The piston forks are big giving the bike a great advantage when it comes to takes off speed.
The Suzuki GSX-R1000 bike has a spacious riding position designed for track work and road riding. When fired, the engine revs aggressively and clutch bites are predictable. The electronics, which are known to interfere with the sports car do not in any way affect the bike. When riding this bike, one feels ok since it is easier to control the bike even when it is sliding or negotiating corners. The bike is averagely stable especially when negotiating corners and when the brakes are applied. The steering feels heavy when negotiating sharp corners, this makes the bike stable since it limits the angle at which the corner can be negotiated.
The Suzuki GSX-R1000 is one of the Suzuki models that have excellent brembos which releases the grip as soon as the bike finishes negotiating a sharp corner. This motorbike is fast but cannot be compared to the Ducati, Aprilia and the BMW. Its ergonomics are great and make the bike a great asset in the day to day use. The bike has a tingling vibration especially when driven at high speed.
The bike boasts of the following features;
- 183bhp power
- Maximum Speed of 180mph
- New light pistons
- Improved Inter-cylinder
- Good ventilation
- Boosted mid-range power
- Lighter valves
- A Tank whose capacity is 3.85 gallons
Among the factors that make the bike popular among the riders is the easy with which one can ride it. This bike is generally good on the road and performs better although the vibration is still its major problem.
Conclusively, this is one of the bikes that one should go for if he is not interested in speed but love to have great control. It is among the few bikes you can ride for fun. The bike is still being improved on and is expected to compete with Ducati and Aprilia in world championships.
