The most powerful GSX-R ever
The latest-generation 999.8cm3 in-line four cylinder, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine, is the most powerful, hardest accelerating GSX-R engine ever built. Producing 148.6kW (202ps) @13,200rpm with 117.6Nm of torque @10,800rpm. 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.
Broad Power System
The Suzuki Racing VVT (SR-VVT), Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A) and Suzuki Top Feed Injector (S-TFI) systems combine to make the Broad Power System, the engineering goal was to increase high-rpm performance without reducing low and mid-range performance. The results of this system is strong, linear power and enhanced acceleration throughout the rpm range
Suzuki Racing VVT
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,boosting high-rpm power.
Suzuki Exhaust Tuning-Alpha (SET-A)
Each header balance tube features a servo-operated SET-A butterfly valve. The SET-A valve in each header balance tube remains closed to enhance lower-rpm and mid-range power, then opens to increase volume and reduce back pressure to add significant power at higher rpm.
Top Feed Injector
The ride-by-wire throttle bodies each feature a single butterfly valve and each cylinder is fed by two ultra-fine 10-hole injectors. The primary injector operates at all times. A second injector in the top of the airbox and operates at higher rpm.
Motion Track Brake System
The Motion Track Brake System works with the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) to constantly monitor vehicle movement in 6-directions along 3-axes, Pitch, Roll and Yaw. Using IMU input, the system reduces rear-wheel lift during very hard braking on the racetrack. On the premium R-model the system also optimises brake pressure when the motorcycle is leaning during cornering.
Brembo radial-mount, monoblock front brake calipers each have four 32mm pistons and work with a radial-pump, 19mm master cylinder.
Brembo 320mm Hybrid Discs
Each disc features a new hybrid mounting system using a 50/50 combination of 5 conventional spring loaded floating pin mounts and 5 Brembo T-drive floating mounts.
Stainless Steel Brake Lines [R-Model]
The R Model is equipped with stainless steel brake lines for increased stopping performance.
SHOWA BFRCⓇ lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion lite) Rear Shock [R-Model]
BFRC® lite rear shock absorber balances (equalises) oil pressure above and below the solid internal piston as it moves. It’s a difference that the rider can feel on the street and on the racetrack, with riders reporting better feel and drive grip that allowed them to initiate drive sooner and accelerate out of racetrack corners harder.
SHOWA BFFⓇ (Balance Free Front) forks [R-Model]
Equipped with the latest SHOWA BFF forks, developed for racing use provide more consistent damping and enhanced performance, increasing cornering traction by delivering smoother, more controlled travel and doing a better job of dealing with pavement imperfections.
Lighter Aluminium Frame
Suzuki engineers designed a new twin-spar aluminium perimeter frame that’s 20mm narrower at the widest point between the spars and weighs 10% less than previous.
Racing inspired swingarm
An aluminium swingarm is braced on both sides instead of on one, to improve weight and rigidity balance. It’s also 25mm longer from the pivot shaft to the rear-most axle position, improving cornering feel on the racetrack.
