Suzuki angrily terminates VW tie-up

Guy Procter, 18 November 2011 10:12

The dream of a GSX-R Passat or TDi Gladius is over. Suzuki has acrimoniously ended its partnership with VW. Chairman and CEO Osamu Suzuki's statement is worth a read for anyone who has ever experienced unrequited love themselves: "Today Suzuki terminated the partnership with VW.  Suzuki will be seeking the return of its shares from VW in arbitration. I am disappointed that we ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSR750 - GSR takes on the Nurburgring

Liam Marsden, 27 October 2011 14:55

Rising at 5:30am on a day off isn’t exactly what I’d call relaxing, but with the GSR already loaded up and sat waiting patiently in the garage and the Nurburgring as the finishing point for the day I was up surprisingly quick. Meeting my Dad’s mate Dave at Peterborough services we then met my Dad somewhere on the M20 before ...

2012 GSX-R1000: bigger midrange, new brakes and better fuel economy

John Westlake, 24 October 2011 17:49

Suzuki’s 2012 GSX-R1000 gets new Brembo Monobloc brakes, more midrange power and is 2kg lighter than this year’s model. Though Suzuki list dozens of changes to the outgoing model, the majority are subtle – anyone hoping for BMW-beating traction control or dramatic power increases will be disappointed.  Here are the highlights: 2kg off the kerb weight Brembo’s Monobloc calipers More ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R750 - Viva el Gixer!

Michael Neeves, 20 October 2011 14:12

Now that's what I call a summer trip. 3397.6 miles in two weeks, on a bike designed for the track, but absolutely perfect for everything else too. From the monotonous motorways of France to the stunning switchbacks of Andorra, the city streets of Barcelona and trips to beaches in Ibiza, never once did I wish I was on another bike, ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R750: The surprise tourer

Michael Neeves, 26 September 2011 12:05

It's fair to say my GSX-R750 has lived most of its short life with the rev needle pinging against the redline on track. It's a sensational-handling bit of kit, devilishly fast and intoxicatingly involving. But most surprisingly it's really good at long journeys, too. So far I've been to Le Mans, travelled over to the TT and been to Le Touquet. ...

Video: Suzuki V-Strom takes on rivals

MCN, 23 September 2011 09:30

The new Suzuki V-Strom already impressed MCN when we rode it at the launch. The replacement of the bike's old SV650 motor with a new Gladius-derived unit, a full restyle and lashings of extra refinement moved the V-Strom up to a new level. But our test shows that, despite Suzuki's best efforts, it still falls short of the powerful, more ...

Insurance error fixed

Steve Farrell, 02 September 2011 12:27

An error by insurance companies which stopped Suzuki GSX-R1000 owners getting factually correct policies is to be rectified after we highlighted it. MCN revealed how insurers and comparison websites insist the bike is 998cc when in fact it is either 988cc or 999cc depending on year of manufacture. Riders who give the correct capacity are charged more for having a ...

1989 Suzuki GSX-R1100 wins wheelie world championships!

Dan Aspel, 26 August 2011 11:21

A 22-year-old Suzuki GSX-R1100 with a homemade turbo defeated dozens of modern GSX-R1000s, turbo Hayabusas and a BMW S1000RR in last weekend’s world wheelie championships at Elvington, Yorkshire. Egbert Van Popta, a German now living in Holland, took regular competitors by surprise by approaching the start of the flying kilometer in fifth gear on the elderly GSX-R – bored out ...
