2021 Suzuki GSX-R1000R, GSX-R750, and GSX-R600 100th Anniversary First Looks

Hot on the heels of Suzuki announcing a special edition 100th Anniversary Suzuki GSX-R1000R for the United Kingdom, Suzuki Motor of America does them one better with a reveal of the 2021 Suzuki GSX-R1000R, GSX-R750, and GSX-R750 100th Anniversary editions. The 100th Anniversary designation refers to Suzuki’s 100th year in business.

Suzuki GSX-R 100th Anniversary: MSRP


Although there are no technical changes, all three Gixxers get a Metallic Triton Blue/Metallic Mystic Silver paint job that has two functions. The paint looks like the current Team Suzuki Ecstar MotoGP motorcycles raced by Álex Rins and Joan Mir, and well as paying tribute to the Suzuki Grand Prix racebikes of the 1960s.
