Suzuki GSX R1000 Review

Suzuki GSX R1000 Top Speed: 183MPH(294.51 Km)

Though the GSX-R1000 isn’t the fastest motorcycle ever, it still holds its head high against most bikes below its top speed. Imagine a bike that can sprint from 0-60 mph in only 3.1 seconds! GSX R1000 is that bike for you. Aside from its notable performance and strength, GXR1000 is extremely beautiful, with 3 color options with complementing graphics and wheel trim accents. There’s more.

Ride Mode

The GSX R1000 has 3 riding modes that allow the rider to select the ideal power delivery to match the current riding condition. Usually, each rider is abled differently in terms of riding styles based on the condition of the road they’re riding on. 

To some, a sporty ride is their preferred option. To others, a subtle and comfortable one is ideal. Fortunately, GSXR1000, like other modern bikes, can have diverse riding modes according to the rider’s demand.

Driving modes regulate the sensitivity of the throttle pedal, the amount of fuel consumption, the level of computer traction available, and the different suspension settings.

Any driving mode you choose in GSXR1000, expect comfortable and controllable speeds. Primarily, the driving modes focus on safety as much as performance.

Fuel Economy

The GSXR1000 has a fuel economy of 38MPG. Fuel economy measures how far the bike can go on a specific amount of fuel. Usually, less fuel consumption equals a higher fuel economy.

The design of GSXR1000 plays a significant role in its fuel efficiency. However, 38MPG is the average fuel economy for a bike at its level. Better still, it consumes less fuel making it relatively easy to maintain. As long as you maintain high-quality fuel in GSXR1000, the emissions will be minimal, ensuring it upholds an eco-friendly performance.

Riding Technology

The GSXR1000 features the most advanced riding technologies, like the six-axis IMU, traction control, and quick shift system. Here’s how they function;

The IMU stores manage and transfer all the necessary bike information like acceleration and rotation to computers. This way, the data is helpful for suspension adjustment, traction control, and ABS.

Excessive and sudden pressure on the throttle might cause the bike to spin and become unstable, which is risky. Thanks to the Traction Control System (TCS), you don’t have to worry about that because it automatically adjusts the driving force applied on the wheels.

Lastly, the quick shifter prevents you from adjusting anything before a gearshift, like a clutch or a throttle. It makes gear changing very easy, keeping the rider focused on the road.

Instrument Panel

GSXR1000 features a broader and brighter LCD instrument panel that’s easy to read. Aside from nighttime visibility, it comes packed with indicators like turn signals, high beams, shift lights, coolant temperature, and oil pressure alerts.

Additionally, the LCD instrument panel in GSXR1000 is laid out in a way that makes it easy for the rider to read essential riding information like the speedometer and tachometer.
