2025 GSX-R1000R

2025 GSX-R1000R Overview

The 2025 GSX-R1000R’s versatile engine provides class-leading power smoothly and controllably across a broad rpm range. The compact chassis delivers nimble handling with excellent suspension feel, ready to conquer a racetrack or cruise a country road. Advanced electronic rider aids such as traction control, launch control, and a bi-directional quick shifter enhance the riding experience while the distinctive, aerodynamic GSX-R bodywork slices through the wind.

The Showa® BFF and BFRC-Lite suspension components provide an unmatched combination of reliability...

Key Features

View Product Brochure

The compact, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 999.8cc, inline-four-cylinder engine has the exclusive Suzuki Racing Variable Valve Timing System (SR-VVT) using a centrifugal actuated mechanism on the intake camshaft sprocket to increase high RPM power without losing low- to mid-range torque. 

The Suzuki Racing Finger Follower valve train weighs less than a tappet-style valve train reducing friction and increasing valve response at higher engine speeds.

Titanium valves with two 31.5mm intake, and two 24mm exhaust valves are used for each cylinder. The lighter valves respond well to the finger follower’s arms, permitting a 14,500 rpm redline that helps produce extremely high peak horsepower.

The EFI system uses Suzuki’s Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle Bodies, with throttle valves controlled by a servo motor for fast response to rider throttle input while delivering precise and smooth power.

The Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) multi-plate, wet clutch functions like a slipper clutch during downshifts while increasing plate pressure during acceleration. The Suzuki Bi-directional Quick Shift System enables smooth, clutchless upshifts and downshifts of the cassette-style, six-speed transmission.

The cassette-style, six-speed transmission lets riders precisely match gear ratios to the riding condition. A cassette-style transmission can be easily removed from the crankcase as an assembly with the engine still in the frame, making racetrack gear changes easier and simplifying service.

Based on Suzuki’s race-proven, close-ratio transmissions, the GSX-R1000R gear box features vertically staggered shafts reducing overall engine length.

The shift linkage can be easily set up for reverse-pattern, GP-style shifting (even with the quick-shifter in use).

Light and compact, the twin-spar aluminum frame has adjustable swingarm pivots to help racers tune the chassis. The gold-anodized Showa® BFF fork and rear suspension components deliver extraordinary damping control while the lean-sensitive, ABS** system monitors the Brembo® four-piston, front brake calipers that are fed by stainless steel hoses.

The GSX-R1000R’s swingarm pivot features an adjustable location so the chassis can be better tuned for competition use (please use the standard position for street riding).

The Show® a Balance Free Front Fork (BFF) uses race-level technology to bring excellent damping force responsiveness not seen before in a supersport motorcycle. This suspension’s design controls damping force outside of the spring chamber, so the fork precisely maintains consistent damping regardless of its stroking action. With the BFF the rider enjoys an unparalleled level of surface feedback and ride compliance.

Racetrack-developed links connect the single Showa®  Balance Free Rear Cushion Light (BFRC-lite) shock to the braced swingarm. The BFRC-lite’s innovative design controls damping force outside of the shock body to not only control how the suspension strokes but helps smooth its reaction over bumpy surfaces or when the chassis is pitched during braking. This produces a superb level of response in a racetrack environment and sets a new standard for rider feedback and comfort during street riding.

An Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) provides six-direction, three-axis, motion, and position information to the ECM so instantaneous electronic adjustments are made to the Traction Control* and the lean-sensitive Motion Track Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)**.

The black background LCD multifunction instrument panel was inspired by the GSX-RR MotoGP dash, and the aerodynamic fairing houses a bright, stacked LED headlight assembly and eyebrow position lights above the Suzuki Ram Air Direct intake ducts.

The Suzuki Bi-directional Quick Shift System lets GSX-R1000R racers shift faster than ever. By manipulating ignition timing on upshifts and the electronic throttle bodies on downshifts, clutchless shifting helps deliver faster and more consistent lap times.

The Suzuki Launch Control System provides GSX-R1000R riders a competitive advantage when launching their motorcycle at the start of the race. This system modulates engine power so the rider can concentrate on clutch operation.

The 2025 GSX-R1000R is available in a new Candy Daring Red / Glass Black paint scheme with dark red wheels or a stunning Metallic Matte Sword Silver scheme with bright blue graphics on the fairing and black wheels.

The aerodynamic bodywork was created by Suzuki styling designers and engineers using wind tunnel testing to achieve a slippery shape and compelling appearance. Narrower than ever, the GSX-R1000R’s shape directly aids performance by improving handling and top speed on the racetrack.

The reasonable sport riding position comes from a carefully crafted relationship between the clip-ons, footrests, and a seat height of just 32.48 inches (825mm).

The shifter and rear brake pedal are adjustable in relationship to the footrests, and the hand controls are adjustable in relation to the grips.

The passenger seat can be replaced with an optional color-matched solo tail cowl (available from your Suzuki dealer). See authorized Suzuki dealers for the wide range of Suzuki Genuine Accessories available for the GSX-R. The GSX-R1000R has a twelve-month unlimited mileage limited warranty, and longer coverage periods with other benefits are available through Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP).
