Team Classic Suzuki Replica GSX-R1000R Unveiled

 

Oh my! Stand back and behold the beauty of this one-off Suzuki GSX-R1000R, for Team Classic Suzuki has applied its stand-out retro livery to the latest Suzuki litre-class superbike and it sure does look splendid.

Remember the Bennetts Suzuki that Richard Cooper rode at Assen as a wildcard in BSB last year? That retro-themed regalia is up there with this one.

Despite the team spending most of its time racing and parading a host of classic and vintage racing machines from Suzuki's history, iconic racing liveries have often adorned more modern GSX-Rs, and the Team Classic Suzuki livery adopts an element of early GSX-R750 design, most notably with the blue stripes across the fairing.

The GSX-R1000R Team Classic Suzuki replica gets the same livery and sponsor graphics on the fairings, including title sponsor Suzuki Vintage Parts, which itself supports owners of older GSX-Rs from the range's 33-year history.

 

 

The bike is also fitted with a number of items from Suzuki's genuine accessory range, including brake and clutch lever guards, engine case savers, carbon frame cover, pillion seat cowl, fuel cap trim, carbon air intakes, double bubble screen, axle sliders and paddock stand bobbins.

And that’s on top of the range-topping superbike’s clever variable valve timing system 9the same as the GSX-RR MotoGP machine) and a suite of electronics including 10-stage traction control, quickshifter and auto-blipper, launch control, and cornering ABS.

If you’re heading to the Isle of Man Classic TT this year, the bike will be on display with the Team Classic Suzuki racing outfit on the paddock.
