2013 Suzuki GSX-R1000 And Hayabusa Limited Editions Launched– Details

The year 2013 is a milestone year for both Suzuki and its GSX-R performance motorcycle. Recently the company produced its one millionth GSX-R motorcycle and is celebrating this special achievement with a commemorative edition of its flagship sportsbike, the GSX-R1000. Worldwide the company will launch 1985 commemorative editions of the GSX-R1000 of which 1000 will be exclusive to the US market.

Appearance wise the bike is very different from the standard model, after all that’s what a limited edition is all about, and will arrive with some cosmetic add-ons such as a serial plate with its unique serial number along with commemorative edition written on it, red-anodized front fork caps, gold colored front fork tubes, red colored rear suspension, special wheels, Brembo caliper on the front with the company’s logo in red, and a special key chain featuring the ‘R’ logo.

Aside from the GSX-R1000 Commemorative edition there will also be a limited edition of the supersport class contender, the Hayabusa. Alike the GSX-R1000, it will not feature any technical upgrades or changes but will get a couple of tweaks enhancing its visual appeal, probably to stay in the competition.

The Hayabusa is available in two trim levels, standard and L.E., priced at $14,399 and $14,599 respectively. (Technical Specifications at the bottom of the post)
