2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Review

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.

At first glance, the new GSX-R looks pretty similar to the outgoing model. It still has a funky trapezoidal headlight, familiar lines and the distinctive blue and white color scheme. According to Suzuki, the 2012 model is a "refined version of the fifth generation." Perhaps the first thing visually different is the single exhaust that replaces the twin exhaust setup of the 2011 version. Another visually obvious change is a switch to Brembo monobloc calipers (in gold to separate them from its silver 600/750 brethren) and red pinstriping around each wheel.
