Suzuki GSX R1000 Bike Pics

The 2009 Suzuki GSX R1000 model debuted in Paris in September 2008 features 999 cc, 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled DOHC and has the price tag of $12,999. Check out further details and high res bike pictures after the jump.


At Suzuki's 2009 model launch held in Paris today, Suzuki unveiled an all-new GSX-R1000 K9 model, alongside the new Gladius 650 and Intruder 1500 models.

Boasting an all-new compact engine, shorter wheelbase and new styling, the new GSX-R1000 raises the bar once more in the hotly-contested Supersport class.

With significant changes in the engine department, the new GSX-R boasts a more over-square bore and stroke (74.5mm x 57.3mm), larger, titanium valves, a higher compression ratio (now 12.8:1 as opposed to the K8's 12.5:1), and 12 hole fuel injectors, to deliver a finer fuel mist for more complete combustion. All this with a power-plant that is 59mm shorter from front to rear.

And it's not just the engine that's seen the significant changes either, as the all-new chassis makes the GSX-R1000 more agile than ever before. With the new shorter, twin-spar cast cradle frame, mated to a new longer, arched swing-arm made of three castings, the new bike boasts increased racetrack performance with a wheelbase shortened by 10mm.

Equipped with Showa's new Big Piston Forks (BPF) with endurance race proven design, these, combined with a new rear shock absorber that features high and low-speed compression damping, offer superb feedback and response with reduced weight too. The new lightweight, race-proven mono-block forged radial calipers, mated to fully-floating 310mm discs offer superb stopping power.

With a unique engine and chassis package, the aggressive aesthetics and rider controls top-off the flagship GSX-R. WIth the unique Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System, featuring low-slung MotoGP inspired titanium exhausts, a lighter, sculptured fuel tank, on-board lap timer and revised Suzuki Drive Mode Selector controls, the new bike offers the complete sports package.

Also unveiled in Paris was Suzuki's all-new Gladius 650. A new naked middleweight model featuring Suzuki's legendary 650cc V-Twin engine, the Gladius boasts unique styling in a user-friendly package.

With a fuel injected, twin plug head engine delivering enhanced performance, combined with great style and neutral lightweight handling, the Gladius is perfect for first time or experienced riders alike.
