Suzuki GSX-R 1000 R Origins 2018


Suzuki likes to cultivate the image of its most famous icon: the GSX-R. Especially that of the very first, the mother of modern sports cars, the flagship of a generation: the 750 from 1985. That year when Marty McFly left in the past to come back to the future, the clock has kicked off. ‘accelerator; and it is this memory that the brand continues to perpetuate here. For this very particular GSX-R 1000 R, the colors of vintage go hand in hand with a rich endowment. The first name also wants to be trendy. So, make way for the track fury with this Suzuki GSX-R 1000 R “ORIGINS”.

A sports label rather than an appellation. Which takes over from the senatorial nouns “Anniversaries”. Like its predecessor, the “30th Anniversary”. And yet, despite the years and the versions, we never tire of this very kitsch decor, very teenager, audio cassette and Super with lead. An impeccable mimicry takes place between the original and the last descendant adorned here. Everything is there, the charm, the azure features, the captivating white, the road crunched by the teeth – except the little grain of impertinence missing: that it would have been welcome to adopt a blue saddle and a gray frame. metal, as before, as before…

Suzuki Suzuki GSX-R 1000 R Origins 2018France took care of the presentation. Appearance matters, details a lot, and the piece is called for to look pretty these days. In 1985, you wanted a pot, nasty camshafts, a Ricard and a cigarette. This time, we are still waiting for a pot but next to it, decorative pieces, a little precious material, a guava juice and an electronic taf..
The workshops adapt. The GSX-R 1000 Origins has plenty to please. A nice Yosh exhaust ……. Uh no, a carbon Akrapovic. The Slovenian brand knows the business and will make everyone smile. As she likes to tease, Madame les watts also has a nice batch of parts, sometimes racing, sometimes flashing:

– Adjustable racing footrests
– Aluminum license plate holder
– Double curvature screen
– Passenger seat cowl
– Carbon front air intakes
– Carbon side covers
– Numbered plate
– Adjustable brake and clutch levers
– Aluminum / Teflon lever protections
– Anodized aluminum chain tensioner
– Anodized aluminum oil cap
– GSX-R tank protection
– GSX-R valve caps
– Workshop stand + diabolos
– GSX-R cover

And where are the original parts? Nearby ; in a big wooden box that Suz took care of also numbered.
How is that also? The number of copies is limited? Yes, exactly 33. That is to say the number of years separating the two heroines of this chapter. Each GSX-R 1000 R Origins will show its serial number on a plate affixed to the tank.
Slight concern, the price jumped. This mixture of exclusivity and nostalgia comes at a high price. The wallet fever, however, will rise less quickly than the dose of adrenaline once the engine is in action. Because under the dress of the 80s, it’s a barrel of powder that never sleeps. The legend barely takes the time to wash up before exploding one more time.

* Why this Yosh … hesitant? Because most of Suzuki’s special series models are equipped with Yoshimura, the historical partner.
