We have seen a pic and not heard much about it so I will once again add another new thread for all to see.


New Engine
Larger displacement 998.6cc 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine for increased power, torque and acceleration - includes several features to reduce friction and reciprocating mass.

Improved electronic fuel injection system features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve System (SDTV) - maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to-mid rpm throttle response and high torque output - includes Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS).

Compact double-barrel throttle body design with larger 52mm bores for improved power, plus narrower pitch between outer and inner bores - allows use of narrower airbox, fuel tank and bodywork to provide more room for rider's knees/elbows.

Twin injectors per throttle body for improved throttle response and acceleration - primary injector operates under all conditions while secondary injector operates under high rpm/heavy load conditions to further increase engine output.

New cylinder head features larger 30mm intake and 24mm exhaust ports, plus smaller combustion chamber and higher 12.5 :1 compression ratio for high power output.

New Titanium intake and exhaust valves with larger 4.5mm stems for increased strength - valves are lighter overall permitting a 1000 rpm higher engine redline.

Lighter weight forged pistons featuring chrome-nitride coated upper compression and oil control rings to reduce friction and improve sealing.

New reinforced crankshaft and chrome-moly connecting rods, plus recalibrated balancer shaft for dependable high rpm operation.

Back-torque limiting clutch allows smoother downshifts, plus new rack and pinion operating system provides more positive clutch feel.

Closer transmission gear ratios for improved acceleration, plus redesigned shift forks for smoother shifting.

Larger trapezoidal-shaped radiator improves cooling capacity 17% without increasing frontal area, plus new compact cooling fan design further improves efficiency - system includes high-capacity radiator-type oil cooler.

New Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) - all titanium system designed and positioned to keep mass low and close to the centerline of the machine, plus decrease drag and increase cornering bank angle.

Suzuki Exhaust Tuning System (SET) regulates exhaust pressure waves to suit running conditions and maintain optimum engine torque.

ECM-controlled PAIR (Pulsed-AIR) system - operation based on throttle position and engine rpm to reduce HC, CO and NOx emissions.

New-design generator is more compact and supplies power to a lighter and shorter maintenance-free battery - ECM is also narrower and shorter for weight reduction.

New Chassis
More compact overall chassis dimensions including shorter reach from seat to handlebars, lower footpegs, shorter/narrower fuel tank, 20mm lower seat height - all designed for improved rider comfort and mobility.

New wind-tunnel-developed bodywork with reshaped vertical headlights, repositioned ram-air ducts, plus turn signals integrated with mirrors and tail-section - reduces frontal area by 4% and drag by 5%.

Bright 55/65W headlight and reshaped taillight with new clear external lens.

Redesigned instrument cluster features an analog tach with rpm indicator, digital speedometer and new gear indicator - also includes LCD odometer-tripmeters, coolant temp., clock and EFI diagnostics.

All-new lightweight aluminum frame with combination cast and extruded spar construction for precisely calculated rigidity - frame design concentrates engine mass more toward the center of the machine for improved handling.

Braced aluminum swingarm is lighter weight with improved rigidity - right side arm is shaped to tuck in the exhaust for improved cornering clearance.

Fully adjustable 43mm inverted fork features Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coated stanchion tubes to reduce friction and improve response - includes cross-mounted steering damper.

Fully adjustable piggy-back shock absorber with more linear rate linkage system for improved suspension response and feedback.

Radial-mount four-piston front brake calipers with larger 310mm rotors and new radial-mount master cylinder for improved lever feel and feedback.

Bridgestone radial tires mounted on new cast aluminum wheels featuring redesigned, thinner spokes with optimized wall thickness to reduce unsprung weight.

According to my parts dealer;
Yosh already has a slip-on & full system for it!
No pic's to see what it looks like.

I didn't hear that but I heard that seeing it in a pic is one thing but once you see it first hand it grows on you and you feel different about it. I have to see it in person. :dthumb:

I am very upset with Suzuki for making this their "new" GSXR. Just look at the body lines, horrible! I'm not sure which is worse, the exhaust (which would be replaced right away anyways) or the tail cowl. There are only 2 things good about the new GSXR...1)larger engine 2)they put the front turn signals in the mirrors. Other than that....hit the drawing boards suzuki.

the styling isnt quite as aggressive as previous years, IMO... looks like they kinda took a page from honda, and went with alittle more friendly ergos n styling..

Well I like the design now that I really look at it. I am still hating on the exhaust. :puke: But the body lines are smooth and firm flowing. The cowl is nice to. Its raised a bit higher and gives the front rider more of a center-gravity position. Just my :2cents:
