Intermot: Suzuki's Gixers get useful upgrades for 2019

Published: 03 October 2018

2019 Gixers get more control.

Each version of the GSX-R1000 gets a light dusting of useful upgrades for 2019. The GSX-R1000R gets stainless steel braided brake hoses for greater consistency under hard braking over a longer period of time, and now also boasts an adjustable swingarm pivot for race use only, allowing track addicts another dimension to their set-up.

The plainer sibling now gets the R’s quickshifter/auto-blipper system as standard fitment, rather than being a paid option, and both will arrive in dealers wearing Bridgestone’s new RS11s, replacing the aging RS10s. Finally, both bikes will come with black exhausts that sport new heatshields, along with revised paint schemes for the new riding season.
