Every now and again a new motorcycle comes along which redefines what is great, which resets the standards and which everyone knows is the new benchmark. The GSX-R1000 has done that, just as the FireBlade and the R1 did before it.

It doesn’t matter if it’s on or off the track, the Suzuki has proved that it is the new king and it is a deserved winner of the Sport Bike over 601cc category.

1, Suzuki GSX-R1000
