GSX-R1000 – a winner on the road & in the showroom

Fresh from winning the centenary TT Superstock race on the Isle of Man last month, Suzuki’s legendary GSX-R1000 has topped the charts yet again, this time coming out as the best selling motorcycle in the UK, year to date.

Launched just over four months ago, the GSX-R1000 (K7) pushed the boundaries of production motorcycle development, by being equipped with adjustable power settings and unrivalled performance straight out of the box.

Making its road racing debut at the North West 200 race earlier this year, where Bruce Anstey rode his Relentless Suzuki by TAS GSX-R1000 to a Superstock class win, a repeat of the success continued at the TT centenary races, with another win in the class that sees slightly modified road bikes do battle.

Suzuki GB general manager, Steve Callahan commented, “We are delighted to see the success of the GSX-R1000. In pure road racing it has dominated the class most closely linked to road bikes with minor modifications, even lining up at and the North West and the TT equipped with an ignition key! In dealer showrooms, it has been moving almost as fast, now leading the sales charts and outselling its rivals comprehensively”.
