The 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 features significant changes in the
engine department, the K9 GSX-R boasts a more over-square bore
and stroke (74.5mm x 57.3mm), larger, titanium valves, a higher
compression ratio (now 12.8:1 as opposed to the K8's 12.5:1),
and 12 hole fuel injectors, to deliver a finer fuel mist for
more complete combustion. All this with a power-plant that is
59mm shorter from front to rear.
And it's not just the engine that's seen the significant changes
either, as the all-new chassis makes the GSX-R1000 more agile
than ever before. With the new shorter, twin-spar cast cradle
frame, mated to a new longer, arched swing-arm made of three
castings, the 2009 GSX-R1000 boasts increased racetrack performance
with a wheelbase shortened by 10mm.
The 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 is equipped with Showa's new Big Piston
Forks (BPF) with an endurance race proven design, these, combined
with a new rear shock absorber that features high and low-speed
compression damping, offer superb feedback and response with
reduced weight too.
With a unique engine and chassis package, the aggressive aesthetics
and rider controls top-off the flagship GSX-R. With the unique
Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System, featuring low-slung MotoGP inspired
titanium exhausts, a lighter, sculptured fuel tank, on-board
lap timer and revised Suzuki Drive Mode Selector controls, the
new bike offers the complete sports package.
