2017 ASBK CHAMPION

It has been three decades and more than a million sold since the GSX-R line was born. A decade and a half since the first GSX-R1000 (K1) changed the open sportsbike class forever. Now, the 6th-generation GSX-R1000 is redefining the definition of “Superbike”. It embodies the life work and professional ambition of Suzuki engineers who are extremely passionate about the GSX-R brand and its place in motorcycle history. A team who love riding and racing, enthusiasts who were determined to restore the GSX-R1000 to its rightful place as top dog. Put simply -It is the most powerful, hardest-accelerating, cleanest-running GSX-R ever built.

It is the Most Powerful, Hardest-Accelerating, Cleanest-Running GSX-R Ever Built

The crankshaft retains Suzuki’s Even Firing Order Engine legacy. Un-even firing order engines used in other motorcycles vibrate more while the GSX-R1000 makes good power at all engine speeds, runs smoother and reliably while emitting a screamer exhaust note.

The short stroke engine has a 76.0 mm bore versus a 55.1mm stroke, yet is narrower than the prior generation GSX-R1000 thanks to effective design.

The fresh-design engine has been rotated back and positioned in the frame to create optimal chassis dimensions for precise handling and to balance the motorcycle’s weight.

Titanium valves, two 31.5mm intake and two 24mm exhaust valves, are used for each cylinder. The lighter valves respond well to the finger follower’s arms and permit a 14,500 RPM redline that helps produce very high peak horsepower.

Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coated cylinders are integrated into the upper crankcase to reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.

The high 13.2:1 compression ratio helps produce high horsepower. The cylinder head’s shallow combustion chamber minimize heat produced during operation.

The most powerful GSX-R ever

The all-new, 999.8cm3 in-line four cylinder, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine, is the most powerful, hardest accelerating, cleanest running GSX-R engine ever built. Producing 148.6kW (202ps) @13,200rpm with 117.6Nm of torque @10,800rpm, the new engine surpasses the competition. The design target was simple "Increase top end power without sacrificing low and mid range output" to achieve this Suzuki engineers had to employ advanced MotoGP derived technologies known as the Broad Power System.

Suzuki Racing VVT

Exploiting the higher engine speed and increasing the high-rpm power without affecting lower and mid-rpm power presented a challenge. The valve timing typically needed for higher peak power also reduces mid-range and lower-rpm power, and vice versa. The answer came from the proprietary, proven Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT) System developed for Moto GP racing. Unlike complicated variable valve timing systems used by other manufactures, the SR-VVT is simpler, more compact, lighter and more positive. The centrifugally operated system is built into the intake cam sprocket and an adjacent guide plate, using 12 steel balls and slanted grooves to rotate the sprocket and retard the intake valve timing at a pre-set rpm, adding significantly to high-rpm power.

Suzuki Racing Finger follower valve train

The new GSX-R1000 uses a valve train developed in MotoGP competition, using thinner-wall, hollow camshafts operating lighter, F1-style pivoting finger followers. Each finger follower is 6 grams lighter than a conventional bucket tappet (10 grams vs. 16 grams), and because each follower pivots on a fixed shaft, its moving mass is just 3 grams. The lighter moving mass allows maximum engine rpm and valve lift to be increased while improving valve response and maintaining accurate valve control. Each finger follower in the GSX-R1000 is designed based on the actual followers used in the GSX-RR MotoGP racebike, including a DLC coating to increase durability.

Suzuki Top Feed Injectors (S-TFI)

New, ride-by-wire downdraft throttle bodies are 19mm shorter, simpler, lighter and more compact than the previous model’s throttle bodies, with a larger bore (46mm versus 44mm). The new throttle bodies each have a single butterfly valve controlled by an advanced electronic engine management system, and each cylinder is fed by two ultra-fine-atomization 10-hole injectors. One injector is mounted at a steep angle in the throttle body itself and operates any time the engine is running. A second showerhead Injector―also known as a Top Feed Injector (TFI)―is mounted in the top of the airbox, directly over each throttle body velocity stack, and operates at higher rpm. The TFI showerhead injector delivers fuel in an optimised spray pattern designed to enhance combustion efficiency, throttle response and top-end power.

slide 5

Suzuki Dual-Stage Intake (S-DSI)

The S-DSI system has dual-stage intake funnels for cylinders #1 and #4, and single-stage, conventional intake funnels for cylinders #2 and #3. Normally, shorter conventional intake funnels are better for high-rpm power while longer conventional intake funnels are better for low and mid-range power. Thanks to the physics of air flow, S-DSI intake funnels provide the best of both, acting like a longer intake funnel at low and mid rpm, and acting like a shorter intake funnel at higher rpm.

Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A)

GSX-R1000 models have long used a servo-operated Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) butterfly valve built into the mid- pipe to help maximize torque throughout the rpm range by adjusting back pressure based on engine rpm, throttle position and gear position. But the new GSX-R1000’s exhaust system improves on that idea with the addition of new Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A) butterfly valves.

A header balance tube connects the head pipes for cylinders #1 and #4, and another header balance tube connects the head pipes for cylinders #2 and #3, a design feature that normally increases high-rpm power by reducing back pressure and adding volume, at the expense of mid-range and lower-rpm power. Suzuki engineers added two servo-operated SET-A butterfly valves, one in each header balance tube. The SET-A valve in each header balance tube remains closed to enhance lower-rpm and mid-range power, then opens to increase volume, reduce back pressure and work with pressure waves to add significant power at higher rpm.

Forged aluminium pistons

Each forged aluminium piston has short skirts and cutaway sides to reduce weight and friction, a DLC-coated wrist pin to reduce friction and a carefully shaped piston dome to increase compression while also enhancing combustion efficiency. The L-shaped upper compression ring is pushed out against the cylinder wall by combustion pressure, reducing blow-by and improving sealing. The oil control ring features a chrome-nitride coating, which is harder and smoother than conventional chrome plating, reducing friction, increasing durability, and also enhancing sealing.

Advanced Electronics

The IMU-based advanced electronic management system is operated by a 32-bit dual processor ECM (Electronic Control Module). As the rider turns the handlebar twist grip, the ECM reads throttle position, crankshaft position and rpm, gear position, front and rear wheel speed, IMU position and exhaust oxygen content. The system then adjusts ignition timing, opens or closes the throttle valves, and adjusts the amount of injected fuel to work with the traction control system, maximise intake charge velocity, and produce more efficient and complete combustion. The result is effective traction control and more linear throttle response, along with more power, more torque and reduced emissions across the rpm range.

slide 9

All-New Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS)

Using the S-DMS switch on the left handlebar, the rider can select three different mapping and engine power delivery settings designed to match power delivery to various ambient conditions, such as riding on different racetracks, or on tight and twisty roads, or in urban settings, or in traffic, or on straight and open highways. The rider can change the power mode while riding, as long as the throttle is closed. Note: Full engine power is available in all three modes.

slide 10

Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU)

The new GSX-R1000’s advanced electronic management system incorporates feedback from a Continental Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which tracks the motion and position of the motorcycle in 6-directions, along 3-axis, Pitch, Roll and Yaw. Monitoring these motorcycle motions in real time allows traction, braking and cornering control to be more precise and effective. The GSX-R1000’s IMU-based systems are a product of advanced engineering, developed in MotoGP competition.
