Suzuki claims the 2017 GSX-R1000 is the baddest litrebike Gixxer ever. So, without looking at the specs and features of the bike, it will be difficult to support or refute Suzuki’s claim. However, considering the GSX-R1000R is a limited-production model, its price seems to be quite affordable. Let’s take a look at the specs and features of both bikes first.

The 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 ABS and GSX-R1000R are not so different from each other. In its transformation from GSX-R1000, the GSX-R1000R gets a quickshifter, cornering ABS and launch control. Along with Suzuki’s 2 year/unlimited kilometre warranty, these bikes seem like a great vale for money. Let’s take a look at the feature list of the two motorcycles.

2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 - GSX-R1000R

2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Features

  • Forged aluminium pistons
  • VVT technology
  • Finger follower valvetrain
  • Inertial Measurement Unit
  • Traction Control System
  • Quickshifter (on GSX-R1000R only)
  • Launch Control (on GSX-R1000R only)
  • Three colours for GSX-R1000 ABS
  • Two colours for GSX-R1000R

There are fewer changes in the GSX-R1000 ABS’ transformation to GSX-R1000R. The addition of quickshifter and launch control are the only major additions to what is already a stellar package. For the components and electronic wizardry 2017 GSX-R1000 ABS and GSX-R1000R have, they offer a lot of value for money. Also, Suzuki has been able to bring its MotoGP technology to these litrebikes (VVT technology). These bikes are now at par with their European counterparts when it comes to components and technology. Your decision of buying the best litrebike just became harder.
