A lightweight package wrapped with an edgy look.
The latest generation of the Suzuki Gsxr 1000 k10, delivering a renewed invitation for riders worldwide: Own the Racetrack.
Gsxr 1000 k10's compact engine
Gsxr 1000 k10's 999cm3 cylinder powerplant, with Bore x stroke of 74.5mm x 57.3mm brings enhanced throttle response across the entire rpm range and high potential for racetrack performance. The compact engine enabled shorter wheelbase and longer swingarm at the same time to improve racetrack performance.
The Gsxr 1000 k10's engine employs titanium valves, forged pistons, irdium spark plugs and shot-peened conrods. Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)-plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase reduce friction and improving heat transfer, durability and ring seal. 12-hole fuel injectors produce a fine fuel mist for more complete combustion, reducing fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of three performance settings to suit riding conditions and personal tastes. The switch is located on the left handlebar control module.
Large, efficient radiator with a trapezoidal shape developed on factory team racebikes and a trapezoidal engine oil cooler both help reduce drag.
Cable-operated back-torque-limiting clutch makes for efficient clutch operation with superb feel.
A compact Twin-spar cradle frame made of five cast sections, mated with an arched swingarm made of three castings and one-piece die-cast rear subframe.
Big Piston Frontforks (BPF) with an endurance-race-proven design deliver superb feedback and responsive, stable operation, and are lightweight.
