New Engine with MotoGP Design
The new engine revs higher and makes more peak horsepower, while maintaining excellent low-to-mid-range power and drive. It is a compact and lightweight inline four, DOHC with chain cam drive and four titanium valves per cylinder set at narrow angles, with a more over-square bore/stroke ratio, a higher redline and a higher compression ratio. The new engine has a bore and stroke of 76 mm x 55.1 mm with 999.8cc displacement. It uses a new valve train developed in MotoGP competition on the GSX-RR, using thinner-wall, hollow camshafts operating lighter, F1-style pivoting finger followers. The Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT), Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A), and Suzuki Top Feed Injector (S-TFI) systems combine to make the Broad Power System, increasing high-rpm performance without reducing low and mid-range performance. The result is strong, linear power and enhanced acceleration throughout the rpm range.
An All New Chassis
The new GSX-R1000R’s chassis is more compact and narrower. Suzuki engineers designed a new twin-spar aluminium perimeter frame that’s 20 mm narrower at the widest point between the spars and weighs 10% less. It’s constructed of four sections, welded together. Two main spar sections are built up using inner castings and outer stampings to optimise torsional rigidity. The new bolt-on rear subframe is now made of square aluminium tubing, reducing weight by 38%. A new aluminium swingarm is braced on both sides instead of on one, to improve weight and rigidity balance. It’s also 25 mm longer from the pivot shaft to the rear-most axle position, improving cornering feel on the racetrack. It’s now easier for the rider to tuck in because the top of the fuel tank is 21 mm lower, and there’s more room for a helmet chin bar when the rider is fully tucked in. The fuel tank is narrower and sleeker, making it easier for the rider to move from side to side and quickly change direction on a racetrack. The tank is also easier for the rider to grip with their knees while entering hard-braking corners on the racetrack, and the shape of the tank flows seamlessly into the seat and tail section.
