New GSX-R1000 makes Scottish debut at MCN show

Suzuki’s all-new and hotly anticipated GSX-R1000 will make its Scottish debut this coming weekend, when it takes centre stage at the MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show, which will again take place at Edinburgh’s Royal Highland centre on 11-12 March.

The new superbike boasts ground-breaking technology taken directly from Suzuki’s GSX-RR MotoGP racer, with a clever mechanical variable valve timing system that enables the GSX-R1000 to achieve class-leading peak power at 202hp, while also delivering an impressive 117.6Nm of torque. It is also the most electronically advanced GSX-R ever, with a 10-mode, inertial measurement unit controlled, traction control system the highlight.

The new GSX-R1000 will be displayed alongside the iconic GSX-R750 and the supersport GSX-R600, as well as the legendary Hayabusa.

The new-for-2017 V-Strom 1000XT will showcase Suzuki’s offerings in the adventure sector of the market, which comes with lean-angle ABS, and an off-road focus with wire-spoke wheels and DID rims, hand guards and engine cowling, and tapered handlebars.

Also on display will be the SV650, VanVan 200, GSX-S1000F, and the imposing Intruder M1800RBZ. The Address and Burgman 650 Executive will represent Suzuki’s scooter lineup, while the RM-Z250 will highlight the Japanese firm’s off-road competition range.

The MCN Scottish Motorcycle Show takes place from 11-12 March at Edinburgh’s Royal Highland centre, where Suzuki will also be supported by a number of local dealerships. Doors open at 9am on both days. Suzuki can be found on stand H128.
