Video: Suzuki GSX-R1000 first ride

Published: 20 February 2012

The Suzuki GSX-R1000 now produces the most midrange of any 1000cc superbike. What's more, weight has dropped by 2kg and it's gained Brembo brakes and comes with revised big piston suspension.

Suzuki has gone back to what made the GSX-R legendary and simplified the way to a quick lap time. In other words: stop for the corner, get the bike turned then fire it out again with loads of drive.

But without any electrical aids like traction control can the new GSX-R cut it on track?
