Suzuki has released an official video starring the new GSX-R 1000 which explains where and how the 2012 version of the big Gixer is better than its predecessor. As anticipated, the bike doesn’t show any revolutionary solution, but benefits from a number of subtle refinements that make an already reliable and efficient motorcycle even better, possibly one of the most accessible 1000s of the lot, which can be ridden relatively safely even by those who are not track-maniacs.
The new Gixer ‘thou is 2 kg lighter than the previous model, mostly because of the adoption of the single muffler solution. The braking system is now more efficient thanks to Brembo Monobloc brakes (featuring thinner discs), while recalibrated electronics make its power delivery smoother. We just can’t wait to see it ‘in the metal’ at the upcoming EICMA.
