Suzuki has announced a Limited Edition variant of the GSX-R1000R which commemorates Suzuki’s 100th Anniversary. The special blue and silver livery is the standout feature of this limited edition model.

While the special new livery pays homage to Suzuki’s rich 1960s grand prix racing heritage, it actually looks very similar to Suzuki’s current MotoGP bike- the GSX-RR. However, apart from the livery, not much is new.

Powering the Limited Edition Gixxer is an inline-4 999cc motor which makes 202 PS of power and 117 Nm of peak torque. Additionally, the bike gets Variable Valve Timing which comes from Suzuki’s MotoGP bike and spreads the power throughout the rev band.

The bike also gets a 6-speed gearbox with a bi-directional quickshifter. Other mechanical bits include Showa Balance Free suspension, braided front brake lines, Brembo mono-bloc callipers, and an adjustable swingarm pivot.

While the components are top notch, the electronics are no less. The electronic package includes a digital negative LCD display, lean angle sensitive ABS, 10-level traction control, launch control, LED lighting, and Suzuki’s Drive Mode Selector.

Since it’s an exclusive bike, the Limited Edition Suzuki GSX-R1000R will be available in very exclusive numbers. Currently, only 100 units are available for sale via Suzuki Great Britain and the price is £16,999.

However, there are claims that the Limited Edition model will be available for sale globally by 2021. Additionally, officials have also confirmed that not only the GSX-R1000R, other GSX-R models will also receive the special edition paint job.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you.

Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed.
