2006 GSX-R1000

In 2005 the GSX-R1000 re-wrote the rule book for liter class supersport bikes. For 2006 the flagship GSX-RTM is poised to blow away the competition. Boasting works inspired technology and class leading performance, the biggest GSX-R combines incredible acceleration with razor sharp handling.

The newest generation of GSX-R1000 features an engine that produces more horsepower and torque than ever, with quicker acceleration to match - both from a standing start and in roll-on blasts through the gears. It's also been redesigned to shave precious pounds, making it a phenomenal 8.8 to 28.6 pounds lighter than its closest rivals. Its light weight along with completely refined suspension front and rear give the GSX-R1000 the edge needed to Own the Racetrack.

To own your piece of the track in 2006, there's only one choice: the GSX-R1000.

Engine Features

998.6cc 4-stroke, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine for increased power, torque and acceleration - includes several features to reduce friction and reciprocating mass Electronic fuel injection system features the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve SystemTM (SDTV) - maintains optimum air velocity in the intake tract for smooth low-to-mid rpm throttle response and high torque output - includes Auto Fast Idle System (AFIS). Compact double-barrel throttle body design with large 52mm bores for improved power, plus narrow pitch between outer and inner bores - allows use of narrow airbox, fuel tank and bodywork to provide more room for rider's knees/elbows. Twin injectors per throttle body for improved throttle response and acceleration - primary injector operates under all conditions while secondary injector operates under high rpm/heavy load conditions to further increase engine output. Compact cylinder head features large 30mm intake and 24mm exhaust ports, plus smaller combustion chamber and higher 12.5 :1 compression ratio for high power output. Titanium intake and exhaust valves with larger 4.5mm stems for increased strength. Light weight forged pistons featuring chrome-nitride coated upper compression and oil control rings to reduce friction and improve sealing
Reinforced crankshaft and chrome-moly connecting rods, plus recalibrated balancer shaft for dependable high rpm operation. Back-torque limiting clutch allows smooth downshifts, plus a rack and pinion operating system provides more positive clutch feel. Close-ratio transmission for strong acceleration, plus specially designed shift forks for smoother shifting. Large trapezoidal-shaped radiator provides high cooling capacity, plus compact cooling fan design further improves efficiency - system includes high-capacity radiator-type oil cooler. Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) - all titanium system designed and positioned to keep mass low and close to the centerline of the machine, plus decrease drag and increase cornering bank angle. Suzuki Exhaust Tuning SystemTM (SET) regulates exhaust pressure waves to suit running conditions and maintain optimum engine torque. ECM-controlled PAIR (Pulsed-AIR) system - operation based on throttle position and engine rpm to reduce HC, CO and NOx emissions. New-design generator supplies power to a compact maintenance-free battery.

NUFF SAID... lol
