evolution is a hallmark of the GSX-R1000-s And 2012 brings another step ahead. Reaffirming the motorcycle-s claim to the top are improved response, increased power and at mid-range engine speeds, and fuel economy.

For 2012, the lets everyone know at a that it’s the latest of the championship-winning supersport bikes have dominated racetracks the world. It features new colors and a of new styling elements, including new instruments, new black fork and new red pinstripes on the wheels. Put it all together and the offers incredible engine from idle to redline, suspension performance, even responsive handling and superior performance — exactly you need to Own The Racetrack.

Information the Suzuki MotoGP team and the through to Superbike and Supersport around the world have Suzuki’s road-going machine its hands-on RD testing at the top level of competition, which also World Endurance racing reigning and ten-times World Suzuki Endurance Racing

Suzuki’s latest generation of the GSX-R machines that dominated racetracks around the features new colours and a variety of new elements, including new instrumentation, new fork tubes and new red pinstripes on the The GSX-R1000 offers incredible performance from idle to red smoother suspension performance, more responsive handling and braking performance — needed to Own The Racetrack.

Engine include the adoption of MotoGP-derived and fatigue-analysis techniques, which for newly-developed pistons that are now 11% and aid acceleration and overall performance. combined with a finer for engine tappets shaves a 2.5 grams off per tappet, resulting in valve lift with a exhaust cam profile for a slight in valve overlap. Compression is also increased from to 12.9:1.

Along with Monoblock callipers, the 2012 features further chassis that offer greater thanks to a reduction in weight for the tire and axle, offering unsprung weight advantages.

Since its launch more a decade ago, the GSX-R1000 has synonymous with the invitation to Own The

Shaving 2kg from its kerb the new GSX-R features a multitude of such as Brembo-s highly Monoblock calipers for incredible and engine revisions that even more mid-range making this the very GSX-R1000 we-ve ever The Top Performer.

The latest advances in technology are remarkable in their to boost performance potential and efficiency. Chassis enhancements even better control. And refinements evoke the performance and advances.

Faster evolution is a of the GSX-R1000-s engine. And 2012 another quick step Reaffirming the legendary motorcycle-s to the top are improved throttle response, power and acceleration at mid-range speeds, and better fuel

The 2012 GSX-R1000-s engine advances in design, performance, and efficiency with the fundamental that helped to create the legend. Key benefits include throttle response, more and acceleration at mid-range engine and approximately 8% better fuel

The most visible advance is a from two exhaustss to a single The 4-2-1 exhaust pipe is of stainless steel, and the material is for lightness. The catalyzer has more than that of the previous so it gives uncompromised emission together with compactness and The overall exhaust system is lighter than the previous

The single exhaust and a revised length enhance output at low and engine speeds, so acceleration is Plus, less weight at the of the bike means better

Advances inside the engine with the pistons. Suzuki finite-element-analysis and fatigue-analysis techniques in development of MotoGPracebike engines to the pistons lighter without their strength and durability. The bosses are narrower. The piston are newly shape-optimized, with between the intake and exhaust The pistons are newly optimized in of overall rigidity balance and are 11% lighter.

And the pistons- valve are smoother for better combustion The benefits are more torque and acceleration at low and mid-range engine better throttle response, and fuel consumption. The performance translate into quicker out of corners on the racetrack.

Each in the integrated aluminium-alloy cylinder-block/upper-crankcase is plated with Suzuki-s own nickel-phosphorus-silicon-carbide coating, which friction, improves heat durability, and ring seal, and is as Suzuki Composite Electrochemical ( SCEM ).

The ventilation holes in the of each cylinder bore advances in that they-re rather than rectangular. The opening area makes the lighter. It also means pumping losses and accordingly combustion efficiency.

Here the benefits are more torque and acceleration at low and mid-range engine better throttle response, and fuel consumption.

Thinner for the tappet skirts means a saving of 2.5 grams per tappet. The inertial mass gave the freedom to optimize the valve curve. Consequently, Suzuki MotoGP technologies to revise the cam profile for a slight reduction in overlap (the period the intake and exhaust valves are open), thereby increasing the racetrack performance potential.

adopted race-proven specifications and elsewhere in the engine. A bore of and a … of 57.3mm realize performance potential. Optimally combustion chambers and an increased ratio of 12.9:1 (up from promote low-range and mid-range and help to realize a broad curve.

The valve sizes are on the intake side and 25mm on the side. And a short intake combines with location of the cam sensor in the centre of the exhaust to allow a cylinder-head shape saves weight.

The close-ratio transmission-s input and output are triangulated with the crankshaft. The is positioned optimally forward in the relative to the cylinder centre the transmission input shaft is in an high position; and the transmission shaft is in an optimally forward The shaft positions allow the to be optimally short from and rear.

Plus, the crankshaft is simple (consisting of just two sections) and accordingly light.

The vibration-reducing counterbalance shaft in of the crankshaft has an optimally small diameter of 20mm for low mechanical

The race-proven ramp-and-cam design of the clutch reduces pressure on the during deceleration, producing downshifting and corner entry and the track rider to concentrate on and cornering.

A large radiator an efficient trapezoidal shape for factory team racebikes to keep the engine temperature it helps to ensure efficient and consistent power delivery allowing the use of narrow bodywork for low The engine oil cooler also has a shape instead of a more rectangular shape, so it allows the fairing to be narrow for low drag.

An control module ( ECM ) provides engine management and has newly settings to suit the engine and single muffler.

A key technology the ECM-s control is the latest of the downdraft double-barrel Suzuki Throttle Valve ( SDTV ) bodies introduced on the first .

The SDTV system has two butterfly (primary and secondary) in each barrel. The primary valve is by the rider via the twist grip, and the valve is controlled by the ECM. As the opens and closes the primary the ECM reads the throttle position, speed, and gear position and adjusts the secondary valve to the intake-charge velocity.

The ECM thereby enhances combustion makes throttle response linear, and improves low-end and torque.

Each throttle feeds one cylinder, and each barrel carries two ultra-fine-atomization, injectors. Each cylinder-s injector is aimed at a steep, angle down the intake to optimize fuel atomization and under all conditions. The secondary is aimed at the secondary throttle and operates to add fuel for high-engine-speed, conditions.

The amount of fuel by each primary injector is by the ECM in accordance with the engine intake pressure, and throttle The amount of fuel delivered by secondary injector is calculated by the ECM in with the engine speed and position.

The ECM also has an Idle Control ( ISC ) function. It enhances starting, reduces cold-start and stabilizes engine idling diverse conditions by automatically the volume of fresh air fed into the idle circuits in accordance the coolant temperature.

The ECM also the ignition timing and spark based on advanced 3D mapping. The timing reflects new enhancements in Spark plugs with electrodes produce strong for optimal combustion.

A Suzuki Tuning (SET) servo-controlled valve in the exhaust pipe to maximize torque throughout the rev in diverse running conditions by the exhaust-system back-pressure in accordance the engine speed, throttle and gear position. The exhaust also incorporates an oxygen The ECM uses data from the sensor to adjust the fuel for cleaner combustion. The catalyzer in the system further suppresses of hydrocarbons ( HCs ), carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides ( NOx ).

An ECM-controlled Pulsed-secondary AIR-injection (PAIR) injects fresh air from the into the exhaust ports in with the engine speed and position, thereby further emissions by promoting the ignition of HCs .

The unique Suzuki Drive Selector ( S-DMS ) system the rider to select from fuel-injection and ignition-system maps, adjusting power delivery to personal preferences.

A button on the handlebar control module the rider instantly switch the three maps, which are as -A-, -B-, and -C- on the instrument

The -A- setting yields sharp response throughout the throttle-opening to realize maximal power The -B- setting yields relatively throttle response up to the middle of the range. The -C- setting yields soft throttle response the throttle-opening range by reducing power.

Using the system, the can use one map for one part of a racetrack and another map for part of the racetrack. Or the rider can one map for a high-speed racetrack and another map for a racetrack. Or the rider can choose the maps for rainy, mixed, and wet

On the street, the rider can select to suit personal preferences in riding situations. For example, the can choose one map for tight, twisty and another for high-speed cruising.

more than an all-powerful separates the GSX-R1000 from the The key is total integration of every of the bike, which brings an intuitive connection between and machine. With superior and precise control, the GSX-R1000 can take maximum advantage of the performance.

The 2012 GSX-R1000-s represents an evolution in terms of and stopping performance-an evolution gives the rider even control and allows the rider to better advantage of the engine

The chassis retains the basic that have contributed to the legend: A twin-spar frame welded together using five cast aluminium-alloy An aluminium-alloyswingarm that-s welded using just three and is arched to allow the muffler to be in tightly. A short wheelbase for handling on the racetrack.

And a long that enhances traction and out of racetrack corners while rear suspension squat.

advances can be seen in the front front forks, front and tyres. and front axle. they take the GSX-R1000 to higher levels of controllability and

The front disc brakes are equipped with top-of-the-line Brembomonobloc calipers.

The monobloc calipers are lighter and rigid than conventional calipers and give better to the rider. Increased piston mean better braking Also, Suzuki reduced the thickness from 5.5mm to for lightness and adopted a more material to ensure undiminished resistance.

The calipers and discs are 130 lighter overall.

Superior performance combines with stability yielded by enhanced forks to realize great on the racetrack. To highlight the superior performance, the new calipers have colouring with red lettering.

The GSX-R1000 carries forward the Big Frontfork ( BPF ) design, which the need for a cartridge assembly in fork leg and instead has a single, upper piston riding the inside wall of each fork tube.

Advantages of the BPF include highly effective with well-controlled compression great feedback to the rider. Low and minimal changes in internal pressure mean good to small bumps. The fork are fully submerged in oil, so oil is minimized and damping is accordingly Rebound and compression valving screws are indented into the caps.

Spring preload is at the bottom of the fork leg assembly. the BPF design simplifies fork because the entire damping can be quickly pulled out of the top of each leg and replaced without complete of the forks.

New enhancements include a of 7mm in overall length, a reduction of 5mm in and softer suspension settings accommodate the bike-s lower and the shift in centre of gravity resulted from the switch two mufflers to one. The softer improve shock absorption in the …, thereby improving When the rider leans on a or switches direction on a tight the bike feels better and more predictable.

The bike is stable even under braking on the racetrack. More also allows the rider to the throttle wider. The softer settings also yield roadholding while the rider is less throttle on public

The new GSX-R1000 also retains the suspension system that was so on its predecessor. A Showa rear works through an aluminium-alloy mounted on the swingarm. with aluminium-alloy link rods to the frame. The layout reduces the ratio as the rear wheel upward, making the suspension progressive and responsive, thereby traction over pavement while ensuring smooth over bigger bumps.

The has adjustable rebound damping, preload. and high-speed and low-speed damping.

An electronically controlled damper uses the ECM to monitor the speed and adjusts itself for steering at lower speeds and for damping force at racetrack and speeds.

The new GSX-R1000-s front is lighter than that of the model, and its front axle is since it has an outer thread and a nut than the previously used bolt and inner thread. The unsprung weight (the of the components between the suspension and the is accordingly lower. The unsprung has a huge effect on the tyres-ability to in contact with the racetrack

More contact means traction, which is especially when the rider accelerates out of a or trail-brakes into the apex of a Newly improved tread on the front and rear tyres contribute to sharper handling.

The and passenger seats are covered new high-grip leather, so the rider greater stability while on the racetrack.

The wiring harnesses run throughout the chassis are lighter those of the previous model to a new waterproofing method.

Thanks to uncompromising efforts to shave weight, the 2012 GSX-R1000 is 2kg than its predecessor. The lower and precise weight balance higher speeds on straightaways and so they translate into laps.

As well as delivering performance and handling, the GSX-R1000 backs down from the of giving its riders the winning Sharp, clean, edgy and a new interpretation of Suzuki-s famous colours highlight The Top Performer-s identity and its ongoing evolution.

The GSX-R1000-s styling is sharp, and clean. And thanks to extensive development, it contributes to outstanding A wide upper fairing turbulence and drag while great wind protection.

A lower fairing also drag. Suzuki Ram Air-Direct ( ) intakes are close to the centre of the fairing nose, where air is highest while the bike is Sharply creased fairing have a layered shape enhances the flow of cooling air the radiator and away from the

The fairing lowers extend to smooth the flow of air over the

Newly evolved styling evoke the bike-s newly performance and handling. The single makes the bike look and nimbler. The wheels have red punctuated by -R- logos that the bike-s identity. The outer of the front forks are black than the previously used to complement the gold-and-red colouring of the calipers.

Black surfaces an exquisite matte finish. The combination lamp has a new LED layout for weight. And the bike-s identity is by bigger -GSX-R-graphics and more use of Suzuki-s signature blue on the bodywork.

The seat is designed to be and to complement the overall styling. The positioning of the seat, handlebars, and also contributes to riding The footpegs can be adjusted to any of three in a 14mm horizontal and vertical The rear brake pedal and cylinder move with the footpeg assembly, and the shift-lever can be adjusted to accommodate changes in the of the left footpeg .
