Suzuki celebrates one million GSX-Rs with commemorative edition

Commemorative edition GSX-R1000 to reach Australian shores early next year.

Suzuki Australia sent us the following information on a special GSX-R1000 to be released:

Suzuki's commemorative edition GSX-R1000.

Suzuki has recently produced its one millionth GSX-R motorcycle and is celebrating this special milestone with a commemorative edition of its flagship sportsbike, the GSX-R1000.

Worldwide there will be 1,985 commemorative editions of the GSX-R1000 available, to celebrate the very first year the GSX-R was born.

The GSX-R legend began in 1985 with the launch of the GSX-R750, the range propelling Suzuki to the forefront of motorcycle racing, making the GSX-R series the flagship of the brand and a favourite amongst professional racers and riding enthusiasts.

From the beginning, Suzuki has constantly redefined the GSX-R range into a super sport line-up that delivers the pure excitement of racing performance.

The introduction of the GSX-R750 changed the world of sportsbikes forever, as the first mass produced race replica, it was a race bike first and a street bike second.

Joining the GSX-R750 was the GSX-R600 and GSX-R1000, which equally dominated racetracks and sales in Australia and internationally.

Since its introduction just over a decade ago, the GSX-R1000 has won multiple championships and filled 1,000cc production based road racing grids worldwide and currently holds the Australian Superbike Champion title.

Ridden by 2009 and 2012 Australian Superbike Champion Josh Waters, four-time New Zealand Superbike Champion Robbie Bugden and also recently retired three-time Australian Superbike Champion Shawn Giles, the GSX-R1000 continues to own the racetrack.

Featuring class-mastering performance, cutting-edge technology, design and engineering, the GSX-R1000 is the ultimate fusion of performance and design and delivers excellent mid-range power and acceleration.

The commemorative edition of the GSX-R1000 features a brand-new colour scheme reflecting its race heritage, decals on wheels, special anniversary decals and matching seat cowl.

A unique serial number plate and special key add to the value and exclusivity of this special edition.

Just 100 commemorative GSX-R1000s will be available in Australia and are expected to arrive by January 2013 available for a Recommended Price of $18,490.
