05 GSX-R1000 unveiled

1 of 1

This is the first official picture of Suzuki’s 2005 GSX-R1000.

It promises to be even more powerful and even sharper handling than the current cutting edge K4 version.

Engine capacity is up from 988cc to 999cc, its wheelbase is .5mm shorter and it weighs 2kg less than the current model. At 166kg it’s lighter than most 600s.

You’ll get more great pictures, including detailed close-up images, plus full technical spec in MCN – out on September 1, 2004.

One thing is clear from this first picture – the rumoured duckbill-MotoGP-style front end styling the 05 model was thought to be using, has been ditched in favour of a sexier, purposeful look.

The whopping titanium end can is likely to provoke debate.
