2016 GSX-R1000 Commemorative Edition Specifications

When introduced 30 years ago, the GSX-R750 rocked the world with performance and a design that redefined sport motorcycles. Suzuki celebrates this sea of change by unveiling a pair of Limited Edition GSX-R1000 models that pay tribute to the original GSX-Rs.

The 1985 GSX-R750 wore classic blue-on-white stripes that came to signify Suzuki racing worldwide for the last three decades. The new 2016 Blue-White Limited Edition GSX-R1000 continues this classic Suzuki racing heritage motif. Notably, the Suzuki Ecstar MotoGP team recently added this historical livery to a special version GSX-RR.

In 1986, a red-and-black GSX-R750 arrived to pay homage to the race bikes piloted by the Yoshimura Suzuki riders who competed at the Suzuka 8 Hour endurance races in the 1980s. Suzuki’s new 2016 Red-Black Limited Edition GSX-R1000 commemorates that landmark GSX-R, as well as the Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R raced in 1986 by former Grand Prix World Champion Kevin Schwantz. This red-and-black livery made its AMA Superbike debut on the GSX-R1000 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway under Yoshimura Suzuki rider Roger Hayden.

Each Limited Edition GSX-R1000 carries an exclusive “30 Years of Performance” badge atop its gas tank, plus special wheel striping to signify its limited production status.
