Commemorative 2013 Suzuki GSX-R1000

The Suzuki GSX-R hit the market in 1985, the first edition a 750, which continues today. Since 1985, the Suzuki GSX-R has evolved into other models, including 600, 1000 and 1100cc versions.

And this year, the one millionth Suzuki GSX-R rolled off the assembly line at the Toyokawa Plant in Japan, the model being the liter bike GSX-R1000.

Suzuki decided to commemorative this historical moment, designing the 2013 “Millionth Edition” Commemorative GSX-R1000.

The machine will feature a special paint scheme, unique black Brembo Monoblo calipers with gold lettering, wheel stripes, gold forks, a celebratory tank graphic, numbered top yoke, red fork tops, a special key ring and a distinctive red-coloured nose cone.

Suzuki says: “The Suzuki GSX-R750 redefined the definition of a sport bike and took the market by storm when it was introduced in 1985. The GSX-R delivered new levels of performance and agility, quickly dominating both the roads and racetracks of the world, and with its evolution into 600, 1000 and 1100cc versions, Suzuki remained true to the GSX-R’s original concept by continuing production of a 750cc model.”
