The new Suzuki GSX-R1000 is just one of the bikes on the MCN 2009 longterm test fleet. MCN's WSB reporter Michael Guy has done over 5,000 miles on it so far. He's also had his friends on the TAS Suzuki race team help him make an already good bike great...
MCN: Can a £1500 sportsbike beat a GSX-R1000 K6?
The challenge was simple, can a £1500 superbike lap Cadwell less than five
seconds away from a GSX-R1000 K6? We've got the video to show they can.
Follow the hilarious exploits of three MCN road-testers as they try to
prove that £1500 will get you a bike that is almost as fast as the latest
crop of sportsbike.
When wheelies go bad
The end result of a wheelie onboard a Moto Morini Scrambler that landened
slightly off-skew with a MCN staffer onboard, or off it as was the case. As
far as we know there isn't a medical journal in the world that recognises
this type of injury, but maybe MCN readers could come up with a suitable
2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 first ride
The Suzuki GSX-R1000 now produces the most midrange of any 1000cc
superbike. What's more, weight has dropped by 2kg and it's gained Brembo
brakes and comes with revised big piston suspension. But without any
electrical aids like traction control can the new GSX-R cut it on track?

2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Motorcycle Review - Making the Gixxer thou better than ever
Suzuki has given its GSX-R1000 sportbike some notable tweaks for 2012,
including improvements to the engine's low-end power and some new Brembo
brakes. We had a chance to test it out at Homestead-Miami Speedway in
There's a reason why national superbike grids around the world are stacked
with Suzuki GSX-R1000s. With 37 championships in the past 10 years, the
pedigree and performance potential of the venerable Gixxer speaks for
itself. Making up at least 45% of the AMA Superbike field since 2009, the
GSX-R has a reputation for winning. Of course, just when you think it can't
get any better, it always does. Introducing the 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000.

2012 GSX-R 1000 Long Term Review
So, I've put about 10,000 miles on the bike and figured I would give you
all an update. The video itself is rather short and lacking information,
seeing as it was unplanned and unscripted. So, here I shall provide more
Power: Still what I consider the best power band of any stock motorcycle on
the market, plenty of useable low and midrange, and the thing rips all the
way to the rev limiter. Also, the fueling on this bike is light years ahead
of other stock bikes, with none of the abrupt herky-jerkiness of so many
other bikes. Its extremely fluid, and the transition between on/off
throttle is extremely forgiving. Future upgrades include a full titanium
Yoshimura R77 Exhaust (customized
similar to the ones being run on the AMA Superbike Spec GSX-R's), BMC race
air filter, Yoshimura Level Two engine service (Superstock legal) and a PC5
w/ custom ECU tune.
Stock suspension components are more than adequate for most riders,
although the rear shock can pump a little bit when driving hard out of
corners. Corner entry is slower than say the CBR1000RR, but far from slow.
It actually flicks phenomenally fast for a bike of its girth. Feels
extremely planted mid-corner, great stability, and line changes at lean are
fairly simple. Forks have great bottoming resistance, even when braking
down from 170+mph. Future upgrades will be both fork and shock being gutted
and completely rebuilt with new oil, valving, and springs, using Race-Tech
components and serviced at Mad-Jack Racing in Simi Valley, CA.
Super slick, no fuss, always slots right into the proper gear. One of the
best gearboxes out there, easily. Future upgrade will be an Annitori HM+
Hit and miss. While the Brembo monoblocs can stop you decently quick, the
master cylinder that feeds into them is pure rubbish. You have no feel for
the brakes whatsoever, and it requires a good amount of lever pull before
you can get to the meat of those mighty monoblocs. Also the rear brake is
fairly mushy, and when using it to stabilize the chassis in cornering
situations I'd prefer a bit more feel. Future upgrades will be the Brembo
RCS19 master cylinder and Spiegler stainless steel lines.
Overall this beast has been wonderful to me. She is superbly comfortable
for what she is, has absurd amounts of power on tap, handles beautifully,
and I have loved every mile aboard her. Now its time to turn this little
beast into a full on fire breathing monster.
