November 3rd, 2008
Previous - Next



The new generation of Suzuki's class-defining GSX-R1000 superbike will touch down in Australia in the coming months, taking the flagship model to another level.

Continuing the legend of the GSX-R, the 2009 model has received significant improvements, including an all-new engine and chassis, along with major suspension, brake and bodywork developments.

More powerful and lighter with a class-leading power-to-weight ratio, the new model is set to keep the GSX-R1000 at the front of production-based racing grids around the world, after a successful 2008.

Australian rider Cameron Donald was crowned Isle of Man Superbike TT Champion and Suzuki dominated the competitive AMA Superbike Championship, with Ben Spies and Mat Mladin scoring a 1-2 championship finish for the GSX-R1000.

Locally, it has been a regular race winner in the Australian Superbike Championship, while Brayden Carr took out the Formula Xtreme Cup support category, in which seven of the Top 10 riders in the championship were GSX-R1000-mounted.
