Of all the new models that have arrived so far in 2017 there’s been a real buzz for the arrival of the new GSX-R1000.

The wait is now over, on the stroke of midday Suzuki dealers across the land whipped off the covers to reveal what all the fuss is about.

There’s no shortage of press release material and we are looking forward to getting to grips with one on the road very soon. Their debut in BSB also kicked off at Donington, with Bennetts Suzuki rider Richard Cooper claiming a win on the Superstock GSX-R1000 on it's debut.

We popped along to our local Suzuki dealer, their car park boasted pretty much an example of every previous incarnation of the litre GSX-R.
Will these owners be tempted to trade in? With a list price of £14,999 for the ABS base model and £16,999 for the trick ‘R’ version, they both represent great value for money, especially when compared to other litre sports bikes available.

Brand loyalty often dictates your next purchase and model loyalty often seals a deal, if you’ve got a new GSX- R1000 in your sights we’d love to hear from you!
At least one person is already a proud owner, at 11.55am in rolled a stealthy black new model GSX-R1000, which was a bit like someone nicking the jam out of the doughnut with the official launch only 5 minutes away!
