Suzuki GSX-R 1000 2016


The next GSX-R 1000, expected as the new messiah, is getting late. We were expecting it for 2016 … and it will be for the end of the year. To wait, the granny of hypersports continues its resistance. Certainly outdated in many ways, it still offers great sensations and a rare ease of use.. In 2015, Suzuki gave him a little gift: standard ABS to boost the efficiency of the Brembo monobloc calipers (which appeared in 2012). In the operation, Hamamatsu’s hypersport takes 2 small kilos. Not enough to scare the block of 188 horses, always copious and exploitable, even if it returns a good ten nags to the queens of the segment. Still the S-DMS system to choose between 3 injection maps but no traction control yet. However, the new GSX-S 1000 and the big V-Strom are equipped with electronic crutches monitoring the ardor digested by the rear wheel. Suzuki’s policy is sometimes confusing.

Since then, the 1000 Gex has sported a copy-paste colorway on that of the MotoGP machine. A replica of the most beautiful effect, with suave scents of paddock and performance. Our Belgian friends had a taste of it with a 600 GSX-R MotoGP edition. That will be all for this year, the 1000 GSX-R continuing to rely on the L2-> L4 * generation..

Suzuki GSX-R 1000 2016

* Formerly redesigned in 2009, the GSX-R 1000, like most of its Japanese girlfriends, was in great need of an upgrade. European competition is growing harsh, and Japan seems to have fallen asleep on its laurels … Unless the crisis has calmed the ardor of the rising sun too much. In 2012, the sportswoman of Hamamatsu evolved but with timidity. From bow to stern, you will have no trouble distinguishing the L2 -> L5 (Suzuki codes its vintages by a combination of letters and numbers: K for 200 + the last number of the year, Lx for 201x, L5 for 2015).
Because, it is the same. Obviously, the design office has closed, and there is only one intern left to take care of the colors. The latter nevertheless discussed one evening with a technician, and the result ends with a thinning of 2 kilos, mainly thanks to the removal of an exhaust silencer; and resumed with anti-blocking.

Let us leave the aesthetic considerations, always subject to debates and passions. Under the dress, it is a bit agitated. No new engine, no enriched uranium crankshaft, but a good dose of elbow grease to improve torque and mid-range uptime. The engine manufacturers worked on a compression ratio increased to 12.9 to 1 (+0.1), new pistons lighter by 11%, revised camshafts, a reprogramming of the ECU box. With that, the GSX-R 1000 2012/2015 announces a drop in consumption of 8% and more power. In fact, this remains almost identical; the work of the engine manufacturers mainly consisted in making it more available.
According to Suz, the gas evacuation scheme (a single pot, clear stilling chamber, revised pipes) made it possible to smooth the hole between 6,000 and 7,000 rev / min during revs. But as far as electronics are concerned, the Gex retains its S-DMS and its 3 engine power modes … and that’s it.

The changes were more profound for the chassis. Or rather, for the front axle. It is only him who goes through the change box but it is not done halfway. Suzuki has pretty much thrown it away and only the rim is left of the old one. The fork is now Showa’s big piston model: the BPF. On the braking side, it is 130 grams lost and increased efficiency thanks to thinner discs of 0.5 mm but especially the action of the brake calipers. Like all Gexs, the 1000 gained one-piece Brembo calipers. From the big top to the gear level, however badly supported by a set of standard hoses; an association bordering on scandalous. When will the Japanese accept that a sports car must be fitted with aviation hoses as standard?!? All it takes is a set of adequate hoses and a master cylinder from the same source as the calipers to propel the GSX-R 1000 to the pinnacle of trapper braking..

As shy in its evolution as other Japanese hypersports, the Suzuki 1000 GSX-R relies on its glory to extend its career. Queen of endurance, it has also established itself as the benchmark of the category of the previous decade. This version extends its momentum while European competition has already given the boost. It still has an excellent competitive base, which many amateurs and professionals alike know how to appreciate. Financially, the absence of electronic debauchery and minimum evolution make it possible to offer one of the most attractive prices in the category, 2,000 to 3,000 euros lower than the references in the segment..

* The GSX-R 1000 can be fitted with a Sport Pack including: Sport screen + Moto GP sticker + Yoshimura R11 + Top Block plate holder + seat backrest + GSX-R cover + GSX-R tire valves + racing stand.
