  1. The 2019 Suzuki GSX-R1000R is now shod with Bridgestone’s new Racing Street RS11 tires. Gone are the RS10 tires. They’re replaced by track-ready RS11 rubber. These are new tires from Bridgestone that are also found on Kawasaki’s 2019 Ninja H2 models.
  1. The Brembo T-drive brake rotors have a new attachment system. The 320mm floating discs the standard floating rotor spools, of course. However, now the system also features new T-drive fasteners. According to Suzuki, these fasteners allow the rotor to absorb additional braking energy for improved deceleration.
  1. To further enhance braking efficiency, the 2019 Suzuki GSX-R1000R has stainless-steel braided front brake lines. This, certainly, is long overdue.
  1. The swingarm pivot is now adjustable. Suzuki has a positioning for the street, and a different one for track riding. Suzuki politely requests, “Please use the standard position for street riding.”
  1. There are also new color choices for the 2019 Suzuki GSX-R1000R. You can still get the cool Team Suzuki Ecstar graphics, along with Glass Sparkle Black/Pearl Mira Red. Last year’s Pearl Glacier White and Metallic Mat Black No. 2 versions are no longer available.
