New Suzuki GSX-R1000 K7 launch

Surely a date for your diary to review this new model!
The dealer launch of the long awaited Suzuki GSX-R1000 K7 is this Saturday; with Rizla Suzuki riders past and present making appearances at dealerships during the weekend including Chris Walker, Cal Critchlow and John Reynolds. The launch is timed to coincide with the first race of the year, the Qatar round of the World Superbike championship, where the race version of the GSX-R will make its debut; ridden by Max Biaggi and Yukio Kagayama.
The new GSX-R1000 K7 features many changes including updated styling and twin exhausts, along with numerous engine updates resulting in an increase in power from the K5/K6’s 178bhp @ 11,000rpm to 182bhp @ 12,000rpm and a redline hike of 250rpm to 13,750rpm. Also a talking point is the S-DMS (Suzuki Drive Mode Selector) which allows the rider to select one of three power output settings; made possible by an engine management system that alters fuel injection, ignition and throttle butterflies to reduce the power when switched to the lower settings, this can even be done on the move.
So far reviews are good and the K7 is selling well. The battle of the 1000cc supersports bike is certainly on, with stiff competition from the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade, Yamaha YZF-R1 and Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja, it’s going to get messy!
Locate your local Suzuki dealer to see this fantastic machine in the flesh, but please beware of its power and read these motorbike safety guides, and here before hitting the road on one!
